The Elephant!

On Dec 4th 2016 a truly wonderful addition to our village was unveiled, to a crowd of villagers, friends, family and helpers.  Local Artist David Lomax created this plaster sculpture from the original casts which he used to make bronze statues of the Hoarsib bull elephant in 1992.

Lord Joffe of Liddington Manor made a place for the elephant on his land adjoining the Coombe.  Our bull elephant seems to be just stepping out for a stroll in his new home.  We hope his stay in Liddington will be long and happy.

2016 Liddington Christmas Concert

This enchanting event, held on 9th December 2016, featured the Madrigal Ensemble from Bristol University, who treated us with their wonderful singing. We also enjoyed a visit from Father Christmas, and a poetry reading by our village poet Maurice Spillane.
Mince pies and seasonal Gem├╝tlichkeit!
