Old Dalby normally has a very active community with many groups such as netball, cricket, choir, church, toddlers, scouts and wine club. The village also boasts the Old Dalby Singers who rehearse most Tuesdays throughout the year in the Village Hall. Our children are educated at the preschool and primary school. We even have our very own Belvoir Brewery and The Crown Inn. Because of the threat from Covid-19 and recent government advice most activities in Old Dalby have been suspended or cancelled. Please visit Old Dalby Village Hall via odvh.co.uk for further details.

The Old Dalby Village Hall hosts a Post Office

every Friday between 8.30 am and 11.30.

The post office will NOT be open on 
Friday 22nd January 

In the meantime, the Village Hall committee has been busy organising extensive refurbishment at the Village Hall. Open Days were planned but have had to be canceled due to restrictions. A short, amature video has been made, however, to walk you through the hall. Visit the Old Dalby Village Hall website to click on the video link to view it. Please feel free to leave your comments!

Old Dalby and Queensway Heritage Group, with the help of the Heritage Fund and Lincoln University, have embarked on a long term project to record the history and heritage of Old Dalby. They are compiling, recording, digitising photographs and documents relating to the history of the village and asking residents and members of the community for any items they may think relevant. These are then being stored in an on-line archive that is available to everyone. If you would like to submit something of interest please get in touch via the Old Dalby Village Hall website.
Click here to see items already in the Old Dalby Archive.
After the Mini Digs in September 2019, Carenza Lewis examined the numerous finds and gave a talk at the village hall on Feb 5th.  See Old Dalby Village Hall for further details.
Old Dalby Singers Christmas Warm Up

In 2019 the Old Dalby Singers were joined by the School Choir, the 1st Old Dalby Scouts and the Beavers, along with local and wonderfully talented guest artistes for a fun-filled evening. A surprisingly pleasing amount of musical talent for one small community thrilled the audience. The Christmas Warm Up was presented by the singers’ new musical director Deborah Davies.The next family-orientated Christmas concert kicks off at St John’s in Old Dalby on a Friday in December 2020 and there are wine and refreshments in the nearby village hall afterwards. Tickets are normally only £5.00 for adults, free for children and available via Ceris on 823145 or from Old Dalby Primary School. See Old Dalby Singers Website for further details.


A Very Merry Christmas to all Old Dalby Residents who organised cooking and delivery of Christmas dinners for those unable to do so……

This message to Old Dalby posted on Facebook December 2020….

“I was visiting my mum this evening when her Christmas meal arrived.  I just wanted to say a massive well done to all involved, we were so impressed. What an incredible gesture, it was evident a massive amount of hard work had gone into not only the cooking but the presentation and the delivery. What a wonderful village and amazing community spirit.”
