Barton Seagrave community Garage Sale will take place on Saturday September 15th @ 10am.

So far we have 36 sellers dotted around the village.

It's free to do. For anyone who isn't familiar with Garage Sales - you don't actually need a garage (though helps if it rains!), just set tables/ground sheets outside your house, gather up all the old tat that's lying around your house and put it out for sale! Simples & fun!

See the Facebook Barton Seagrave Communication Group...


...for more details or contact us here to add your address as a seller. Just need your street and house number.

Thanks for all of you who have requested information about the new Village Hall via this website over the last few months. We will continue to pass messages on to the the Village Hall Manager - Richard Adshead - but you can also contact directly here: bsvillagehall@gmail.com.

The Village Hall has it own website right here...


This website is not actually owned by the Village Hall or Parish Council, but by a local resident who decided the village needed a website several years ago when there wasn't one. The Parish Council do use it to post minutes and agendas, but the purpose of this website is primarily to provide general information to locals and visitors about the Village and Community in general terms, so it is neutral in that respect and not the posting stage for the Parish Council or any other local organisation.

If you have any suggestions for the website, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
