Rural Social Group

Welcome to the Rural Social Group page

Established four years ago in a partnership between Hartington Community Group and The Farming Life Centre, Bakewell, we meet on the last Tuesday of each month between 2.00-4.00 in Hartington Village Hall. We have a guest speaker at each session on a topic of local interest.

Past topics have included the work of rescue dogs for Buxton Mountain Rescue, bee keeping, a dairy farm diversifying into ice cream making, the skill of dry stone walling, and life on a modern sheep farm. However more than anything it’s an opportunity to meet up with friends from our local communities, old and new, over tea, coffee and endless supplies of homemade cakes.

There’s no cost, no need to book – just come along.
