Shipton Bellinger: What's On
We are hoping that all the societies and clubs in
the village will put pages here. For now, we will begin with:
- The Bellinger Players
- the village amateur dramatic society
- The School House
Fund - the management committee to manage the funds
arising from the sale of the School House
- Castle Judokwai - details
on the local British Judo association club which the
younger people in the village often attend. They are
looking for more members locally.
- The Shipton Bellinger Tennis
Ladder. How it works and how it's organised for the
- The Shipton
Bellinger Model Railway Project. This is not a
society based in the village but a project of the
Historical Model Railways Society to build a scale
railway based on a "might have been" - a line
connecting Tidworth and Bulford with a station by

This highlights the sites of nearby attractions. Please
notify us of anything which needs to be added to this section.
For convenience, we've listed the English Heritage main page.
- The Hawk Conservancy.
Just what it says! With what seems to be around 100+ brids of prey,
including some threatened Indian White-backed Vultures, regular flying
displays, helpful and informative staff and a bird-of-prey hospital this
is a fascinating place we'd recommend anyone to visit.
- The Cholderton Rare breeds farm
is spread over a fairly wide area and contains a wide range of rare sheep,
pigs and fowl and (or particular interest to the kids) a barnful of differing
breeds of rabbits - hence their website being "rabbitworld".
- Stonehenge ...
We're not sure this needs advertising but it's only 7 miles away so we should
mention it! The website is that of English Heritage, but there are loads
of sites with differing information - just try a search on a good engine!
- Danebury Iron-Age Hill Fort Just south of Andover,
this has been the subject of copious excavations and has an excellent
Andover Museum. A great place for a picnic or a walk around the embankments
whilst the museum in Andover is worth a visit if you're half-interested in the
- Old Sarum Another English Heritage site,Old Sarum was a bronze-age hillfort adapted
by the Normans (after they broke up their army here in the 11th century), with
the original cathedrals and, of course, was the rotten borough of Thomas Pitt!
With regular displays and attractions during the summer. This is just to the north of Salisbury
(which has copious numbers of Museums and a Cathedral as well). Try the main
English-Heritage website above.
This link is to a quite informative independent page.

The rest of this page has been suspended for the website and left within the village news,
which is distributed to all the houses in the village.
If anyone really wishes to see it on the site, and has the time to maintain and update
the What's on section, please get in touch witht eh Village Webmaster (email address at the
bottom of the page).
Of course, you can always try the Whats On and Newsletter Archive if
you want to see more.

Similar to the above, if there are facilities
which can be used we would hope to have them all here. For now:

the Village Centre can be booked. For details follow the
