The Parish of Flitton and Greenfield

Welcome

 Welcome to our village website. Although it is hosted by the Parish Council it contains sections managed by other organisations within the village and we hope you find what you are looking for.

A list of Useful Village Contacts is included below or click here.

Harvest Festival

Harvest Festival Songs of Praise - Readings, Poems and harvest hymns - 11 am on Sunday 21st at St John the Baptist Church - all welcome

Why not try the Harvest Supper on Monday 22nd Septermber, it's a fun evening with a nice home cooked supper and an action packed auction, raising funds for the Church and Church Hall and a local charity. Please contact Angela Ayres Churchwarden if you would like tickets - Tables are for 6-8, but don't worry if you are a smaller group, or even on your own, as Angela will group people together to make up tables, and who knows, you might make some new friends!

 
Phone Angela on  860723 or email martandang@btinternet.com
 
Also please don't forget the food bank collection now on - all donations in the Church Porch please. Please donate whatever you can - Food Banks are a direct way of supporting people less fortunate than ourselves.
 
At the same time if you have any produce available for decorating the church and auctioning at the harvest supper, it can also be left in the porch as the Harvest Supper is one of the Church and Church Hall main fundraisers for the year.
Neither of these can be successful without your generosity!

Flitton and Greenfield

Greenfield is a small village about 1.2 miles from the town of Flitwick, it lies across Flitwick Moor and is on the opposite side of the River Flit. It forms part of the parish of Flitton and Greenfield. The area was once well known as a strawberry producing area, and the fields were full of strawberry plants on either side of the main road. It is now a thriving village with several small businesses.

Compasses Greenfield

Flitton  (Flichtam, Fllite, and Flute) forms the other part of the parish and derives its name from river Flit. It is the home of the De Grey Mausoleum adjacent to St John the Baptist church. Flitton contains the hamlet of Wardhedges. It too has a number of small businesses and working farms.
