There will be a Civic Service in St Peters Church on the 21st Sept to celebrate Tim Swales becoming Chair of the North Yorkshire County Council. . St Peter’s will welcome them, and the usual congregation, with a choir and Silver Band. Road closures will be in place that morning (10.30 – 12.00) . Removal of bins next to the Fish Shop would greatly aid disabled access to the Church from the village centre –thank you.
The Parish Council have taken on the responsibility of maintaining the War Memorial and have sought advice from the Garden Club to design a more pleasing planting scheme. The main plaque detailing the names of those who fell during the two World Wars was renovated a few years ago, however the other inscriptions are becoming illegible and will need to be restored. It would be of great assistance if anyone who has knowledge of those who were called up and returned home could pass on the details to assist in compiling an accurate list of names. Once a full list is available it is then hoped to restore the Memorial to reflect its true value to the community.
