Barroway Drove Community Website :: Archives for: 2013, week 27 >>>

Residents of Barroway Drove and the surrounding area are invited to have a go at making a miniature replica of their homes to be displayed on a giant map of the village over the summer.
Adults and children are invited to come along to sessions being held over the summer and try their hand at model making.
The idea is to bring the villages past to life by building a 3D map of the village and recreating historical points of interest by making models of buildings like the school and the chapel both of which are now residential dwellings.
People can also make models of present day buildings.
Every summer the village hall committee hold a series of activities for the children of the village and surrounding areas; these events are always popular and this we have decided to combine the usual activities, which include arts and crafts and tie-dyeing, with the model making.
The activities will be open to all ages. The sessions will take place on the first 3 Wednesdays of the school holidays.
The model village will be on display at the villages annual Flower & Produce Show in August.
