Barby Church Trust (Charity no 277482) - “Taps & Toilet 100 Club”

The last draw of the Taps & Toilets took place recently after six years during which time £23,000 was raised for amenities in the church. Ann & Paul Smith won £85.00 with ball number 94. Barbara Formby won £290.00 with ball number 77.


Barby Flag

Barby Flag


The Flag is a combination of two of the flag designs submitted by residents of the village.

The main device of the flag, the upwards pointing chevron, is a representation of Barby Hill. The name of Barby village comes from the old norse word “Bergbýr”, meaning “hill dwelling”, so it only seems appropriate that the hill should be prominently featured on the flag as it is the village’s namesake.

Within the chevron are 5 diamonds used as a subtle reference to Barby being the birthplace of the Maclaren pushchair company. The Maclaren logo is 5 diamonds in the shape of an M, but in the flag they have instead been rearranged to fit inside the symbolic hill.

Above the chevron is a bar and below is a bee – a play on the village name.

The choice of colouration for the flag, red background, blue central device and additional detailing in gold was chosen to match the colouration of the coat of arms belonging to Barby’s French twin village Vulaines-sur-Seine
