Ž Parish Plan - The Parish Plan initiative gave us the opportunity to examine development and sustainability issues. The housing stock in Alkborough increased by 100% since the beginning of the last world war. Unchecked, this continued level of development will severely affect both the nature and tranquillity we all currently enjoy. The other side of this coin is that our exclusivity has driven up house prices and our own young people, on reaching adulthood, must move away. Of course, this doesn’t just apply to Alkborough & Walcot, its happening in remote rural locations all over the country.

Ž Alkborough Choir - It was started by a group of housewives who ‘just wanted to sing’ in September 1983, and they haven’t stopped singing since. It has developed into an acappella (i.e. mainly unaccompanied) mixed voice choir over the years and today has 21 members, the majority of whom have some connection with the village, either they live or have lived in the Alkborough Whitton/West Halton area, or they are related to people who do.
Ž Methodist Chapel - We hold many activities at the Chapel throughout the year and anyone will find a very warm welcome on any church service or local activity. We share the Sunday School with our Anglican friends at Alkborough Parish Church. Sunday school usually starts at 11:15 am, however the times may vary and there are hand-outs, with the timings, available within the church and chapel.
Ž St John the Baptist Church - St John the Baptist Church at Alkborough dates back many years. Earliest records show that there was a Church here in 1052 and the Tower is of typical Saxon design. The architecture of the Church shows there have been many changes to the building throughout its long history.

For others, club games, darts and pool flyers, quizzes, BBQs and discos, will be remembered with affection.
