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.
October sees the seasons changing and there are lots of things happening in the village this month that you can get involved in.
The Scouts are holding a Dog Show on 6th October at the Scout Hut, all proceeds go towards the new Scout Hut, so why not drag the mutt along and see if your pet has got the stuff of Crufts! For details contact Josie on 230330.
The WI are learning about the Boconoc Estate, this will be on the 2nd Thursday of the month, contact Jill on 239829 for details.
Jubliee Club are off to The Goosey Fair in Tavistock on 10th October. Why not go on the coach? It will be very busy in Tavy that day and much easier than driving in.
The WI are celebrating the 80th Birthday of the WI with a tea party on Thursday 1st November in the Parish Hall at 2pm, always guaranteed a tasty spread with the WI!
Don't forget we now have a bus service to Bude on Fridays, the timetable inside the back page of your Journal has been updated. Please use this service if you can, we have to show that the demand is there.
