If you are interested in a walk after the Christmas holiday to walk off some of that turkey then head along to the Willoughby Arms at 11am on Tuesday 27 December.
The 1 1/2 hour walk will take in the beautiful local countryside and bring dogs, kids, mums and dads back to the pub for lunch and a few drinks.
All are welcome – just turn up on the day.

If you have not planned your Christmas Party yet the the Castle Inn in Castle Bytham are offering a full Christmas menu until Christmas Eve. As well as the anticipated traditional roast turkey with all the festive trimmings, the menu also offers braised beef with horseradish and a fragrant lentil and sweet potato stew.
For starters you can chose from cannellini bean soup, tempura battered prawns with sweet chilli sauce and pigeon breast in stout with bubble and squeak. If you can manage it there is the temptation of a rich Christmas pudding with orange liqueur cream, malt chocolate cheesecake or a trio of fruit sorbet followed by coffee and chocolates.
To make a booking for the Christmas menu, priced very reasonably at £19.95 per person, contact Charlotte or Eamonn on 01780 410504 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A £5 non-returnable deposit per person is required at the time of booking.
This year local cubs and scouts, from the 1st Corby Glen Scout Group, will be running a Christmas Postal Service in Little Bytham. The post box is situated in The No. 10 Store – thanks to Meg and Tom! . For a donation the cards will be delivered anywhere in the village. 50% of profits will go to the Scout Group funds (who are currently fund-raising for a trailer for our camping gear) and the other 50% will go to the BBC Children in Need appeal.
