Children’s Entries for the 2014 Lavendon Show
The Lavendon Show will be held on Saturday, 12th September 2015. That means if you haven’t already done so then it is still not too late to think about planting those seeds, vegetables and flowers to enter into the Show and stand a good chance of winning a prize or may be even a trophy. There are lots of different classes in the Show catering for all kinds of skills whether growing, painting, drawing or making things, ranging from cakes and jams through to Lego monsters or perhaps a great arrangement of flowers. There are plenty of entries available for adults and children alike – why not think about making a Scarecrow this year?!

Good Progress with the Village Hall Refurbishment Programme
With the help of our many supporters, the Phase 1 refurbishment programme for Lavendon Village Hall is well on its way. Take a look at to see what progress has been made so far, click here.
The Committee and Supporters for Lavendon Village Hall have now raised over £100,000 towards the refurbishment programme called ‘Project Diamond’. Much of this achievement has been possible as a direct result of our regular fund-raising social events; all the profits from these events go towards the refurbishment programme.

A message from MK Council:
