Welcome to the Orlingbury website

Orlingbury is a small village mid-way between Kettering and Wellingborough – just off the A43 that runs from Northampton to Kettering.  It may be small village, but it’s friendly and sociable with a variety of regular activities and events.

Regular annual events include a village fete in June, an Open Gardens event and Scarecrows Competition in September, the unofficial World Conker Championships in October, our village Drama Group’s production (usually in November), a Christmas Bazaar, a village hall event close to Christmas, Christmas Midnight Communion in St. Mary’s Church on Christmas Eve, as well as many other locally organised “happenings”.

STOP PRESS….. The village now has a Defibrillator

defibrillatorThe Parish Council has provided funding to purchase a defibrillator – a great piece of kit that can save the life of someone who has gone into cardiac arrest.

We are now looking for around 10 volunteers to be trained on how to use the equipment safely.  It will be a 2 hour course.  If you’re interested then contact any Parish Councillor.
