Bags 2 School collection Sunday 18th March

Please help us raise funds for our village school, Sand Hutton CE Primary School, by doing some recycling! Please fill a bag with any unwanted clothing, shoes, hats, belts, ties and soft toys. No bric-a-brac, bedding, curtains, towels or uniform/ workwear please. It is a great excuse for a spring clear out.
Any bag can be used and there will be a door step collection in both Claxton and Sand Hutton this Sunday afternoon (18th) – just leave your bag visible eg at end of drive. Otherwise, bags can be left on the school playground before 9am on Monday 19th March.
Thank you for your support – your donated clothes and shoes will be turned into funds for school projects such as sports equipment, trips, musical instruments and much more.

GFT Visit to Skipwith Hall. 6th July, 7pm

Green Finger Tips gardening club’s next visit is to the 1700 Queen Anne manor house of Skipwith Hall with its 4 acre walled garden, which has been developed and re-modelled by various family members during the 20th century and, more latterly, has seen the establishment of a beautiful circular vegetable and fruit garden, restoration of the ancient Italian terrace garden and commencement of an arboretum.

Cost £7.00 including refreshments afterwards.

Skipwith Hall, Skipwith, Selby, Yorkshire, YO8 5SQ is 9m S of York, 6m N of Selby. From York A19 Selby, Left in Escrick, 4miles to Skipwith (this is always feels like a long 4miles!) As the A19/ A64 junction can be busy at peak times, an alternative ‘back’ route is from the Elvington Road via Wheldrake and then through Thorganby.

Please park in the field opposite the driveway (there should be a sign) and then come in via the small gate in front of the house. The Visit starts at 7.00pm

There is a pub in Skipwith, The Drovers Arms, which does food, (01757 288088) and starts serving at 5.30. The village is home to the ancient Skipwith Common, if you want to make for a more extended outing.

If you’d like to read more detailed information about Skipwith Hall, see the NGS website.

If you’re a member we look forward to seeing you there. If you’re interested in gardening and would like to come along please do.
