Great Staughton Youth Club

As a team of seven volunteers, we started the Youth Club in 2014 and it had been running for six years when in the middle of March 2020 we were all affected by the COVID pandemic.

As a group we have had lots of time to reflect since lockdown and we feel now is the time for us to hand over the reigns or sadly close the club. We would like to say a huge thank you to the community for all the support over the time we have been running the club.

 

Contact can be made on gsyc2014@gmail.com and there is also have a Facebook page Great Staughton Youth Club.

Horticultural Society

The Great Staughton Horticultural Society has served the local community on horticultural matters ever since it was first established in 1965. The Annual Show in late summer is the big event of the year covering flowers, vegetables, cookery, handicrafts, children’s classes and sundry items. There is also a Plant Sale with cream teas in the spring and a Garden Talk in the autumn.  In addition, there are trips to gardens of interest and visits to member’s gardens. Meetings are held at regular intervals and new members are always welcome. For news, keep an eye on the main news section of the website.

Village Allotments

Do you dream of growing your own vegetables, fresh fruit, herbs and flowers? If so, you will be pleased to learn that Great Staughton has a site containing 27 allotments. There is also a young community orchard on the site which was planted approximately 3 years ago.   Regular work parties to keep the allotment area tidy, weed free and in good repair, take place once a month weather permitting. Allotmenteers bring their own coffee and home made cake is provided. The allotment holders meet once a year to discuss any issues and agree any particular work that needs doing. The annual rent is approx £15.00 to £30.00 per plot, dependent upon size. This includes the annual membership fee of £10.00 which is used to help offset any expenses incurred in the maintenance of the site. Allotmenteers are a friendly bunch and are always happy to offer guidance to new members, share produce and also love to pick up tips from other members.
