Today, on a bright but cold Saturday afternoon, looking at the bare garden and wondering which plants we planted last year and more importantly, in which bit of the border, our thoughts turn to the summer.

Not to another lockdown summer in Walkington, but a proper summer with normal summer activities. What can we look forward to over the next few months and beyond as this dreadful covid-19 virus recedes and lockdown ends.

Obviously, at present there are few definite plans but the blog can report that the Playing Fields Committee are planning to hold car boot sales every two weeks from the beginning of June. There is also the possibility of a picnic/sports day taking place, although this far from certain yet.

We are also waiting to find out about the re-opening of the Village Hall which will allow the many village clubs and societies and other events to re-commence.

It’s unlikely that there will be a spring/summer production this year by the Pantomime Players due to the lack of rehearsal time. But the good news is there is a strong likelihood of a pantomime this year. I am told that the Walkington Pantomime Players  are hoping to present ‘Cinderella’ in the Village Hall. The script is currently being written by Jane Sharp and  Nicola Henderson who you may remember wrote the last pantomime  (Hansel and Gretel) in 2019. That seems like a very long time ago. If it does go ahead that will be one hot ticket.

The blog will be pleased to promote any future village events, so if you are a club member or administrator just send me an email to  with details.
