Shalbourne is a picturesque, winding village, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with a pretty c12th church, many old and thatched houses (some c16th/c17th), a well-used village hall and a recreation ground with one of the most beautifully-positioned cricket pitches in England.
It’s a busy, thriving village, with a very strong community spirit. Village life revolves around the Church, The Plough, the shop, the enviable list of sports and social clubs and our many fund-raising events. We use most of these events not simply to socialise, but also to support each other and keep our village special.
So, whether it’s a tasting evening in the Village Hall, a Pilates class at Shalbourne Pavilion, a Burns Night dinner, a choral concert, or a quiet game of Boules on a summer’s evening - you’ll find it here.
