Northlew Badminton Club
Every Wednesday planned as follows
Juniors (10 to 16) and Beginners 06:30 - 07:30 £2.00
Seniors (Over 16 to 100) 07:30 - 08:30 £2.50
Anyone 08:30 - 09:30 £2.50
All timings are subject to demand as the Hall has to be paid for so a minimum number of players will be required to make it viable. SO PLEASE COME and tell your friends in the locality.
Why not learn to play Badminton for fun, friendship – and fitness? Or as an alternative to anti-depressants! You may have played in the past and would like to take it up again. If you have your own racquet, dig it out of the back of the wardrobe and bring it along - it might even be an antique!
You can wear anything comfortable BUT, for the sake of the beautifully refurbished wooden floor, WHITE SOLED SPORTS SHOES MUST BE WORN.

|Northlew Community Allotment Association
The Association was formed in 2009 to bring allotments to Northlew. They are now looking fabukous on the plot at the edge of the village next to Carmel Coaches depot. There are still one or two plots available to let for anyone interested in growing their own. There is now running water connected to the site too.
For more information contact Cathy Fethers on 01409 220276.
Amateur Dramatic Society
The society was formed in 2007 to produce a Pantomime for and starring members of the village. It was a huge success and now the group produce a Panto every year and have also put on several highly successful Murder Mystery Dinner events as well as a lifesize Punch and Judy show, an outside performance of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream, one act plays and a sketch with supper! We really need more members so if you'd like to be involved either treading the boards or behind the scenes we would love to see you.

The band was formed 100 years ago and is believed to be the only surviving village band
in Devon. We currently have about 20 members and new recruits are
always welcome. We practice every Wednesday at 8.00 in the bandroom
that is situated in the yard behind the village hall. We play a
wide range of music varying from classic marches and hymns through
to modern chart music made popular by artists such as Robbie Williams,
Westlife and Mariah Carey. Anyone interested in joining
the band is welcome to come along to a practice.
For more information please contact Rachel Richards, Bandmaster on 01409 221802 or Martin Perry, Chairman on 01409 221376.
Northlew Gardening Club meet once month on a Wednesday night in the Chapel Rooms. We cover a wide range of topics through speakers and organised activities, along with visits to other gardens for inspiration. We also organise plant and seed swaps to help you add even more to your garden.

Snooker has been played in the room at the
side of the Victory Hall since the mid 1920s. Teams have played
in the Okehampton and Bude leagues, winning on many occasions in
both league and knockout competitions.
Today we are struggling to maintain one team of five players in
the Bude League. It would be a great pity if the Snooker Club folded
up so we are looking for new members. All would be welcome. Parents
with children or older people who might be interested in playing
snooker or helping to maintain the club are asked to contact Andy Wilkins (01409 221878).
