Despite its relatively small size, Spaldwick is home to a number of active clubs and groups to suit all ages and interests, and they all welcome new members! They provide a great way to meet new people and foster the great community spirit that exists within the village.
Spaldwick Social Group
The Spaldwick Social Events Group (or Social Group for short) exists to initiate and organise social events to enhance the social life of the whole village community. The Social Group organises the annual Spaldwick Fete (in July) and Santa travelling round the village on his sleigh (in December) as well as many other events (including Burns Night celebrations, Valentines Balls, a Bollywood Barndance and an Hawaiian Ho-Down). In the last few years, the Social Group has raised over £10,000 for local causes. For more information, view our dedicated Spaldwick Social Group page.
Escape Youth Group
Escape resulted from an active group of parents in the village that was intent on securing better facilities and activities for the young people in Spaldwick. It has instigated highly-successful youth nights, which are held on alternate Friday evenings. In addition, special events are organised throughout the year, including film nights, ten pin bowling, several visits of the Connections Bus, paintballing and Spider Mountain. For more information, view the Spaldwick Escape webpage.
