Flower and vegetable show 2020 : Cancelled

The Village Hall team have tried to work out how they could still hold the Show at the beginning of September, but have concluded that the current state of the pandemic prevents a show being held.

The show will be back next year….

Banter and batter quiz cancelled

A note from Jackie and Deryck…


As it seems likely that the Holcot village hall will be operating in a socially distanced environment during and probably beyond October, making a packed quiz hall impossible, we have taken the sad decision to cancel our popular quiz night.

The previous Quiz nights held twice annually since October 2014 have raised £6,600 split approximately 50/50 between carefully selected charities and our lovely village hall, providing a fun night out for our quizzers.

We’ll quiz again (apologies to Vera Lynn) when conditions permit so please check this website and future editions of the Holcot Village Newsletter for announcements. Alternatively please contact us on 07808 721655 or email jackie.watson55@outlook.com.

“Bonsor’s cows doing the daily trek from the top of Sywell road to Holly Tree Farm for milking1958. Perhaps see the odd car in a day.”
