Welcome to Blencogo

Blencogo is a small farming village on the Solway plain just outside of Wigton. Our community website seeks to involve all those within the parish and further afield.

On the site you will find a ‘What’s on’ diary of events, a list of suppliers and businesses available locally, useful links and some commentary from local user groups and individuals.

The Hall is available for hire throughout the year

Great night at the Harry Douglas Quiz. We were all having such a lot of fun we forgot to take any pictures 😆🤦. Oops. You'll just have to believe us that it was a packed hall with 64 quizzers including lots of new faces which were lovely to welcome to our community.

Excellent hosting by Adrian and Liz 😍 and helpers.

Remember the next event is the Ceilidh with The Bald Mountain String Band on 8 March, check out the event and get your tickets booked. 1/3 tickets sold so far so don't leave it too late!!
