207 Squadron Memorial Service, Langar Airfield, Sunday 18th November 11am

October 15th, 2018

Sunday 18th November 2018 – Langar Airfield 11:00 hrs
As many of us are committed on the 11th November it was considered reasonable to hold this event on the following Sunday to remember those who lived for a short time in this small community but did not return.
We will again this year parade at the 207 Squadron Memorial site at Langar Airfield alongside Granby, Barnstone & District Branch of the Royal British Legion members, members of the local Council, local historians, serving and retired service members and other interested parties too many to mention individually here.
Philip Clarke, RAFA

1st Barnstone Brownies put out a call for Brownie Leaders

October 3rd, 2018

Our dilemma and worry for our future lies with our Leadership. Lu Denty ‘ Little Owl’ who has been with us for over 15 years has decided very reluctantly to give up at Christmas after a number of life changing events, the latest being a mastectomy in August. Di Taylor helps us out when we need her, but has changed her allegiance to Staunton Brownies. That leaves me, ‘Brown Owl’ and Vicki Page ‘ Barn Owl’ Unit Helper, and our amazing Young Leaders Emma and Phoebe.
Our Beaver, Cub and Scout units have folded due to a lack of Leaders (not children).
We don’t want this to happen to us. If there’s anyone out there who could lend us a hand (weekly, monthly or even now and again) on Tuesdays in term time 6 to 7.30pm, we would be very grateful. HELP!
If you feel you are able to help in any way, please contact Dot Clayton at
