Welcome to the village of Tallington
We hope you will enjoy living here.
There are regular events throughout the weeks and months - usually held in the village hall. See the link on the left hand side for details.
We run a 200 club, where residents of the village choose a share number for £1 a month. A monthly draw takes place with 3 winners each month winning £5, £10 or £15, plus 2 Big Draws every year with prizes of £10, £20 or £50! As they say, you have got to be in it to win it! If you would like to join the 200 club please contact a committee member for more details.
The Tallington Village Book is on sale - contact us for your copy, an excellent way to learn some of the history of the village.
