|Walgrave Wild Walkers (WWW)|
|WWW was originally set up to arrange “wild” days out by employing rapid emails to members so as to accommodate any sudden change in the weather or plans in order to get the best from the walking.This is still the case and we do go out in small groups with minimal notice. But in order to include anybody in our community who would like to come out, we also make allowance for longer term planning to accommodate families etc. and have to take pot-luck with the weather.|

Village Voices was formed in September 1992 and has continued to flourish ever since. The music director is Ian Clarke who is also a very experienced organist.We now have about 30 members and sing a variety of music. We usually sing some sort of Christmas cantata or choral work which ends with audience participation. During the Lent Term we may sing anything from Faure Requiem to Rutter's Requiem, or maybe a Mozart Mass. In the Summer Term we sing a more light-hearted programme of music, which can range from Madrigals, Barber-shop, Spirituals, Nursery Rhymes but with jazzy harmonies. We finish with a concert locally and a soloist is often included, e.g. trombone, violinist, pianist, didgeridoo! Afterwards there is usually a cold buffet supper with wine.
Anyone is most welcome to come – no voice test is required and we welcome sopranos, altos, tenors and basses. Please contact Pam as above.

|Walgrave Amber Football Club – sadly not playing at present|
Walgrave was home to one of Northamptonshire's oldest football teams. Formed in 1896, Walgrave Amber played in the Northamptonshire League (subsequently to become the United Counties League), the Kettering & District Combination League, and more recently the Northants Central Combination League.
In the last years of the 20th century, the club was forced to fold, and played for a while under the name Walgrave Royal Oak. After a gap of some 12 years, Walgrave Amber FC was reformed by David Rhodes. It formally re-affiliated with the Northants FA in 2007 and re-joined the Northants Combination League in time for the start of the 2008/9 season.
The club's original nickname, The Pipe Stems, has only recently been unearthed. Walgrave Amber now plays its home games at the nearby new village of Mawsley.
