Diary / What's On

This “What’s on in Barrow” is a new venture. The idea is that at the beginning of each month the list of events happening in the village will be placed in the Library, The Paper Shop and the Post Office for you to collect. Initially 100 will be printed. “What’s on in Barrow” will also be posted on the Village website and Barrow Voice.
If you would like an event included then please place brief details in the boxes available in each of the “outlets” by the 24th of the previous month or contact Mike Morley on 412982
