Saturday Social

It was good to see so many parisioners attend the Saturday Social yesterday and everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves. This time the theme was ‘buy local’ and there were great produce items available – scrummy homemade buns from Jack, honey from Fiona, beautiful jewellery from Deborah, greeting cards from Rose Trading (with all profits going to the De-Fib appeal), flour from Yorkshire Organic Millers (Spaunton Bank), plants, preserves and who could forget Jennie arriving with a plate of her famous pork pies still warm, with the aroma filling the hall.

There were refreshments aplenty and thanks must go to the ladies of the WI for making so many cups of tea & coffee. The heritage display was fascinating especially those genuine mini Claxton bricks, the villages’ website was up and running, the community library was open and we found out about the 2 newest clubs – Shutterbugs and the forthcoming Knit & Natter group. Not forgetting Liz updating us on the De-Fib appeal (donations are still most welcome!) and information was available about the Village Produce Show in Sept. Finally, our very own Olympic Games Volunteer Anne White popped in to tell us about her experiences ‘down South’.
Apologies if I’ve left anything out – there was just so much going on. Thanks to everyone who made yesterday’s event such a great success.
