Welcome to the Jacobstow Village web site.
This site has been designed to give you a brief introduction to the village and also point you in the right direction for any organisation, club or volunteer group in the village you may be interested in. The village lies just off the A39, approximately half way between Camelford and Bude and about five minutes drive from the beach at Crackington Haven - you can hear the sea on still nights! The Norman church of St James lies in the middle of the village and we also have two other churches within our boundaries. As we are in a rural situation the views and walks in and around the village are outstanding.
We are a small community with a lot of support from various sections of the village for different interests, as you can see from the navigation keys on the side of this home page. Contact details are included in the information, so please feel free to get in touch.
I'm sure we've all seen the BT Open zone vans flying around, Norman Osborne your Parish Council Chairman has been chasing BT about fibre optic arriving in the village like a dog with a bone. The latest promise is mid February, Norman is on the case and will be contacting them if this doesn't happen.
On a lighter note, a couple of fundraising events are planned for this month.
We have a Pasty and Pudding lunch in the Parish hall on St Pirans Day (Monday 5th March if you are not in the know!) funds raised will go to Jacobstow Church.
The second thing planned is a Quiz Night on Saturday 10th March, please phone Anne Connerly on 01840 230252 to book your table. £5 per person in teams up to 6 people, should be a good evening.
