Festive Lighting

For several years the residents of Upland Terrace and Norwich Road have enjoyed some friendly competition in a great display of Christmas lights. This year's efforts have been well up to standard.



Christmas Is Coming

'Twas The Night Before Christmas,
And down at the bar,
The Sida-Page’s are ready,
They've travelled so far.
One from the shire with a castle and bear,
Her sister the one with the mad curly hair,
At about half past six they'll hear such a clatter,
And hope it is Denton folk with snacks on a platter.
Come all from the Greens, Great, Upper and Lower,
Including the Darrow come fast or come slower,
Come Ronnie and Maureen,
Come Beaver and Kat,
Come Kath and our Terry (in a nice sheriff's hat),
Come all of the Winters the plucking is done,
Come Jon and Lorraine it will be ‘such fun’,
Come all Middle Roaders,
Come one and come all,
To enjoy Christmas Eve at the Old Village Hall.

Make Yourself Comfortable

The Village Hall Bar is now a lot more comfortable.

The Management Committee have invested the generous donations from the families of some much loved Denton residents who sadly passed away in 2018, to purchase new comfy chairs and curtains for the Bar.


Residents are looking forward to trying them out over the Christmas and New Year period.

Eight Trees - Two Venues

Many Denton residents crossed the border last weekend to visit the wonderful display of decorated Christmas Trees in Alburgh's All Saints church. They were pleased to find that no less than eight of the 35 trees on view had been supplied by Denton people or clubs.

One of the trees had been created by a skilled team from the Gardening Club so it was entirely appropriate for that one and five others (not sure what happened to the other two?) to be "transplanted" to DVH for the Club's Christmas Social evening last night.

They made a very attractive backdrop to the party and helped develop a great Christmas spirit for the occasion.


From the left above, they came from: the Dentones, the Tennis Club, Lana Osborne, The Art Group, The Gardening Club.

It is hoped that they will remain in the Hall over the festive period.

Welcome to Denton

Denton has just expanded! We are now 8 properties and 14 people bigger.

The previously announced parish boundary changes, between Denton and Earsham, are being implemented on the new, 2019, electoral registers. These have just been published and will be used for next May's District and Parish Council elections.

We are delighted to welcome the new arrivals in Danacre Road, Middle Road and, what is still officially, Denton Road, Earsham. We hope this anomaly will be corrected in due course.

The village now covers 329 voters in 165 properties.
