Vandalism to cars parked outside Utkinton Village Hall – an apology

We have had a disturbing situation outside Utkinton Village Hall on Thursday 21st November. Beeston Young Farmers hired the hall for an event and parked a number of cars on John Street – despite being asked not to. Five cars were ‘keyed’ and damage sustained. If you have any information about this please get in touch with the Village Hall Committee.

Apology – I am told that it was on 20th November, not 21st. It doesn’t alter the situation though.


Or please contact the Police:

Utkinton Village Hall Quiz Night

A smashing and highly competitive quiz night saw seven teams competing for the main Prize (a Voucher from ‘The Boot’). The teams all had their grey matter tested by Quiz Master Richard Francis’s fiendishly difficult questions – a Great Raffle, some super refreshments and a pay-bar all added up to a night to remember.

Well done to all.
