“Asby Buildings 100 years Ago”


Pew Runner - Asby Buildings 100 years Ago

Created September 2011

Nearly 2 years since the first pew runner was made and everyone’s felting skills have developed tremendously. Our Green Space commissioned an artist to sketch the old buildings of the village as they would have been 100 years ago – some of them have hardly changed. This piece started off as pew runner, because of all the intricate detail and extra work that has gone into this one we decided to make it in to a wall hanging.

We all made white pre felt as a base then cut out the shape of the windows and doors,   the roof tiles were needle felted on. Can anyone recognise the school, the church, the pub, the almshouses, the rectory, St Helen’s well or the smithy. There are other farms and cottages from the village along with a dog, cat, pig, horse and a farmer’s wife.

Note – house sizes are not to scale and site may vary from actual location.

ATG Activities

We will be working with local landowners to identify small areas of land that can be used to plant trees or hedges. Occasional requests will go out to members, seeking volunteers to survey areas of land to assess the age and health of trees and to identify possible planting areas, as well as to take part in planting trees and hedges. These activities will normally be scheduled to last for no more than three hours.

The Tree Group has insurance to cover members carrying out these activities.

COVID Policy (Feb.2022)

Unfortunately Covid-19 has not gone away, and we still want everyone to feel safe whilst being able to enjoy the film.

  • We use ‘cabaret-style’ seating around suitably spaced tables.
  • We recommend that you continue to wear a face covering when moving around the village hall, though this may be removed whilst you are seated.
  • It would also be appreciated if you could complete an antigen (lateral flow) test before attending.  (We are more than happy to refund your ticket should your test unfortunately prove positive.)
