Rural Social Groups

Our rural social groups continue to prove popular and offer a welcome opportunity for communities to come together.

Where are our social groups?

  • Hartington which meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month
  • Boylestone meets regularly
  • Ashford in the Water which meets every other Wednesday

See programmes for dates. They are lively meetings of rural residents including a number of retired and semi-retired farmers and family members who meet for tea and a chat with meals out and speakers thrown in for good measure.

We welcome all new members.

Contact Rachel Metcalfe at the Bakewell office for more details: 01629 810903
