An Introduction to Langworth...
Langworth is the core village of a group of five; Langworth, Barlings, Low Barlings, Stainton By Langworth, Newball and Reasby and it is Langworth that hosts the Memorial Hall, the pubs and various businesses.
Pastoral care is provided by 3 churches, St Hugh’s (Langworth),

Personal contact by the Parish Councillors keep us informed as do our young people who are aware as to whom information can be exchanged. Attempts have come to nothing to re-awaken the Village Hall Youth Club but there is always hope!
With our elderly, normal village awareness is strong and the elderly are served by many friends and residents of the village. The Memorial Hall offer Coffee mornings and the sessions are attracting more visitors every week since plenty of chat and togetherness is provided and the opportunity to ask for help/assistance if required. The Police try to be available between 11am and 12 midday at these coffee mornings.
Bingo sessions, Games Nights, Jumble Sales are all held regularly in our Memorial Hall.
The Senior Citizens all have an annual Christmas Lunch at no cost to the senior residents, in one of the local hostelries, paid for by fund raising throughout the year and donations for advertising in our local village magazine - the ‘Langworth Local’.
We are served by a fine and regular daily bus service and the Mobility bus and the Wragby Resource Centre Car Scheme is readily available.
The Women’s Institute has talks and visits of all sorts to which non-members are welcome; most village meetings are held in the Memorial Hall.

There is a free bus on Friday to Tesco.
A monthly newsletter ‘Langworth Local’ is issued free to every household in the grouped parish, carrying all sorts of news and advisory points. Recent Editions are available on this website.
Daffodil bulbs have been provided by the Parish Council for a number of recent Autumns and many residents have taken up the offer of bulbs to plant in the verges of our village.
Environmentally, Barlings Abbey, a pinfold and Tree Conservation are all part of Langworth’s heritage.
Two pubs, one either end of the main village, a hatchery, farmers, an outreach Post Office and a garage are our main businesses. We have three Bed and Breakfast accommodations, a Livery, Cattery, 3 sets of fishing lakes, attracting visitors from all over the region, with caravanning facilities on two sites.
The Parish Council keeps the parishioners informed of events/happenings by posters on notice boards, the ‘Langworth Local’ and flyers if a vital scenario is mooted.
We feel fortunate to live in a prospering friendly community, which has so much for a population of under 500. We all take pride in our village and surroundings and to belong and live amongst many friends.
