Filby Calendar 2009

Our 2009 calendar, "Filby Then & Now", was launched at the Filby Playing Field, Bank Holiday Fun Weekend at the 'Local Roots' Exhibition in the Clubroom with profits going to the new village hall fund.

There are still some on sale at the Post Office at only £7.00 ea. or via this website but time is running out and we are already planning the 2010 calendar.

For enquiries and orders send an email to the address below.
