Congratulations and thank you for supporting the village hall.

The inclement weather in July forced the annual Hens Barbeque indoors.  The rain failed to  damped spirits and instead the Hens set up tables under cover at Home Farm Yard and invited the Men of Hollowell to join them.   Many thanks to Sarah and Paul Mourant for offering their home for this jolly occasion.  In August, a party of Hens set out for a private tour of Holdenby House.  We were treated to fizz and nibbles in the Entrance Hall and then a fascinating tour of the ground floor of the house and the gardens by guide Elaine Pryor.   Many thanks to Hollowell resident Jaquie Hampton who organised the trip.

Hollowell Hens is a very informal, friendly group open to everyone in Hollowell & Teeton.

Chyrstal Baker-Bates has recently retired from her position as Churchwarden of St James' Hollowell.was one of our two church wardens for 11 years and has always been enthusiastic, welcoming and dedicated to her duties.She has overseen various projects and improvements to the church with great good humour and efficiency. Chrystal's artistry with a needle and thread is much in evidence in St James' and she created many beautiful pieces of needlework, including five stunning altar rail kneelers and a Millennium tapestry. Kathleen Litchfield is now the only churchwarden at Hollowell and if there is anyone who would like to take on Chrystal’s role we would be very grateful.  We thank Chrystal for her years of excellent work as Churchwarden and wish her well for the future.


We had a glorious day for the Open Gardens in August.  Three beautiful and contrasting gardens were on display to the public.    Thank you to everyone who visited and to the gardeners for all their hard work.  Almost three hundred people came to see the gardens and a fantastic £785 was raised for National Garden Scheme charities.   Thank you too to everyone who helped with the refreshments in the Village Hall by offering cakes or serving teas.   The team made a profit of £700 towards church funds.  

The Council for the Protection of Rural England has awarded our community litter picking team of March 2017 a Runner Up prize in their Northamptonshire Litter Awards. A CPRE spokesman said, "The competition was once again very keen and we were impressed with the efforts put in by so many litter heroes throughout the county". The Hollowell & Teeton team has been awarded £150 to put towards the benefit of the community in the coming year. Many thanks to everyone who helped.

Congratulations to two Hollowell families who enjoyed wedding ceremonies at St James' Church, Hollowell on consecutive weekends in August.We wish both couples every happiness.
