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.
Please come along to the Church on Sunday 3rd December for our Traditional Carol Concert with a supper in the Parish Hall afterwards. The church is decorated for Christmas and it really gets you in the mood for the Festive period, and the suppers not half bad either!
If you need to walk off all that lovely supper don't forget the walking club are getting together on Thursday 7th December, meeting outside the Parish Hall at 10am.
St Genny Silver Band are performing in the Legion Hall on Friday 15th December at 7pm, well worth a look at.
All the other details of events are in your Jacobstow Journal, have a quick look and get involved in your community.
May I take this opportunity to thank Ballynet for keeping our website current and up to date, no matter how many times they have to chase me for the write ups!
I would also like to thank everyone connected with the Journal, without their help it just wouldn't happen.
Happy Christmas everyone and best wishes for the New Year
