the flag is at half mast -


very sadly, Wyn Vake passed away on 22nd May at her beloved home in Inskip aged 90.  She was born at 'High Spring' on Miller Lane in Catforth in 1929 before moving to 'Willagy Cottage' on Benson Lane.  She spent the last 60 plus years of her life in Derby Crescent in Inskip.  She celebrated both her Wedding Reception and her 90th birthday at Catforth Village Hall as she wished, surrounded by som many of her friends and family.  She had a wonderful sense of humour and was loved by all who knew her.  It goes without saying she will be dearly missed.  Rest in Peace.

Catforth Village Hall flag


I am sure I am not alone, in giving a quiet thought to 'persons unknown' who have sadly passed away, (as signalled by the flag, flying at half mast, outside the village hall).


For those of you who, like me, wondered how the decision was made to fly the flag then I am pleased to say I can give the answer...


The flag at the village hall can (and will) be put at half mast for any villager (current or past) who has died.


In order for this to occur, someone has to notify a member of the committee either directly or by email Please ensure if emailing you give the name of the person involved and if possible a short obituary which will be added to the website.



Ever wondered what goes on at the village hall, how you can get involved, how you can join the bowling club, who the trustees are... or indeed have you a question that you would like to ask about the hall and its activities but have never known who to address your query to? 

Well now is your opportunity ... if there is anything you would like to know, relating to the hall, email your question to . It will be directed to the relevant individual and your question and answer will be posted to the website.





A plea to anyone who may have pictures of, or any information relating to, the village hall from days gone by .. we would love to include them on our website.  We can be contacted at our email address -
