Welcome to the web pages for the Village of Filby, Norfolk.
This website aims to show who we are and some of what we are doing.
References may also be included for the neighbouring parishes of Thrigby and Mautby as some activities overlap and people move around.
We also have a sister site for Filby in Bloom which covers our 'in bloom' activities. It will merit regular visits in the coming year as we go forward, especially as it has been announced that the village has again been nominated for the Britain in Bloom in Bloom Finals, 2012.
However, by far the most up to date news is to be found on the Village Voice page.
Filby Orchard at Christmas 2013
Filby Olympic Village
The heading may be a little over the top but Filby was selected to be one of 1019 communities around the country where the Olympic Torch Relay would be run. The torch visited us early on Thursday 5th July. Three runners were scheduled to take part, in the event we had four Torch Bearers.
The torch was brought here from Acle and then taken to Great Yarmouth.
There will always be a lot of work to be done before this site is anyway near complete, in fact it will probably never be complete as we are generating material faster than I can put it up and the village continues to evolve, so you may find strange screens or links that have yet to be forged. Please visit regularly to see what has changed.
Some of the links are not yet in place and content for some of the pages is still awaited.
News and current events can be found on the Village Voice page and you can follow the links to see what happened, if I know of course, and, perhaps, what you missed can be found on the Village Voice Echoes pages.
Should you prefer a larger text size than that displayed you should be able to adjust the settings on your browser without upsetting the layout too much.
Using the menus you should be able to navigate the site using just about any web browser on any operating system.
Some of the older of the pages are still being rewritten to take advantage of the leaner code, flexibility and quicker download times offered by Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). However, pages should still display reasonably, if not totally as intended, even if you are using an older browser (like Netscape 4.x which does not understand some CSS commands) or Internet Explorer 5.x for Windows (which does not always render CSS correctly).
If the page display is a real mess perhaps it is time to consider upgrading to the latest, more secure, version of the browser or try an alternative browser such as Firefox which is free to download and being actively supported.
Should you experience any particular difficulty accessing any of these pages please send an email to the address below.
If you have any comments on the site or the efforts of the village please email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Praise is always welcome but criticism can help our continued development.
