Inglewood Annual Rural Ball
Next to be held in May 2017
Inglewood Town Hall
Everyone is welcome to come, as the ball is being held for the enjoyment of anyone interested in having an old fashioned night out. It is a formal event, not a money making event and we want people to come along and have some fun, and our hope is to cover the event costs.

Inglewood Town Message Board
Local energy provider, NOVA Energy is now the supplier of electricity to the Inglewood town messageboard. Under an agreement reached between NOVA Energy and the Inglewood Rotary Club, NOVA Energy has agreed to support the sign and message board because of it's value to the community. The time as displayed at the top of the board is synchronised with the World Atomic Clock and the Temperature is digitally recorded at the sign, in the shade and 2m above ground level and is accurate to within half of one degree. The Annual Average Daily Traffic Volume as published by the LTSA for 2009 for that part of Rata where the sign is situated was 11,079 vehicles per day, so visibility is very high and many commuters take a keen interest in what messages are displayed and what the outside temperature is (everyone believes the temperature when it says -3 degrees but never believe it when it says 33 degrees!).
