Auctions at the Village Hall
Billingford Saturday Auctions have unfortunately now had to cease, due to Covid rules, and will recommence when it is possible to do so. Information regarding the new starting date for the Auction will be posted here.
On Friday July 15th in the evening at 6.30 pm. for 7.00 p.m. there was a Rounders Game which took place on the Playing Field, next to the Village Hall. The support for this event was very disappointing but those that did participate enjoyed themselves.
Quizes at the Village Hall
Quiz Nights take place on in the Village Hall. More information can be read on the Billingford Quiz section of the Website. The date of the next event will be displayed here when it has been set.
Historical Photos and News
The Parish Council was recently lucky enough to be sent some photos from the daughter of past inhabitants of Idle Cottage down Bintree Road. The photos are of Idle Cottage and Hare Cottage and Mr Tom Dack. She believes the two cottages were formerly part of the Holkham Estate.
The photo here is of Mr Dack of 1 Bintree Road.
Years ago it was 2 dwellings and his daughter, Mrs Harison, lived on the other side of the building with her husband and son. Here is Mrs Harrison as a child, with her mother standing outside Hare Cottage in 1930.
Mr Dack, although in his 80s, cleared the nettles and attended the vegetable patch at Idle Cottage. His own garden was full of lupins and other plants, and the picture shows him emerging from his greenhouse.
