Sadly, on Friday 1st May, we learnt that Mick Unwin had passed away following a long illness.


Over the years Mick had played a huge part in our community serving as Chairman of the Parish Council, being an integral part of the Shelford Feast committee, organising the very successful bi-annual Street Market, and generally giving his heart and soul for the good of the village.


I’m sure you will all join in sending our condolences to Angela and their family, and giving our thanks for the impact Mick had on ourselves and our village.







If you wish to include anything in the Information Sheet please contact Bev and/or Karen as below:The Vilage Information Sheet is published Bi-Monthly and distributed to all houses in the village.

Church Services are currently suspended due to the Covid-19 situation, but this page will be updated as we start to get back to normal.






As well as our monthly meetings, held usually on the first Thursday of each month at the Village Hall starting at 7.30pm, we enjoy a range of activities.  There’s fortnightly walking netball, energetic and great fun; darts, where we regularly feature among the cup winners; walks, either along local footpaths or following themed trails in Newark; and occasional “specials”.

In September it was the chance to learn steel pan drumming (huge concentration required but huge satisfaction) and in November it’s the opportunity to make our own Christmas wreaths using foliage brought from our gardens as well as festive additions.  Our speakers are invariably excellent.  October brought local girl Carole Fisher talking about her Farming Year, and in November it’s Stacy Woodward, Service Lead for Insight Healthcare, on “Improving the mental health and well-being of the people we serve”.  Singularly appropriate, since the WI’s project this year is to do with mental health.


All are welcome to our meetings.  Entrance is free for your first visit and there’s always tea, coffee, cake or biscuits.





We are open to all and our opening times can be found on Facebook or in the Bus Shelter.

 What you are asking is what do we sell.  Our range should meet all tastes:

 Around 15 Gins from £1.50 to £2.50 a measure, with Fevertree tonic at £1 or

Schweppes at 75p.

Plus, Rum, Whisky, Vodka, Bourbon and much more, again from £1.50 to £2.50 a shot.

A range of premium large bottles of Lager such as Birra Moretti, Estrella and Budwar from £3 to £3.50.

Cider at £3 including gold medal winning Cider from Ross On Wye.

Bottled bitters from Old Peculiar at one end of the fridge to alcohol free Ghost Ship at the other, all at £3.

A range of Red, White and Rose wine at £10 a bottle and Prosseco at £12

Single serve wines at £3 and single serve Prosecco at £3.75

Soft drinks from 75p to £1.50 and crisps and snacks from 30p, nuts 50p and Cockles at £1.50.

And much, much more.

Our ambition is - if you want it and we can get it, we will.
