Crayke School Supports Christmas Toy Appeal

#


14th December, 2018.


For the third year running, Crayke Church of England Primary School is delighted to support the Minster FM Toy Appeal. During a special assembly the children heard that, while most of us look forward to Christmas, there are some children for whom it is just another day. Every year there are families who through no fault of their own dread the thought of the festive season; people who can’t afford to treat their loved ones and won’t be sharing in the Christmas cheer...

Celebration day at Easingwold Co-Op

#


30th November, 2018.


It was not a 'normal day when I walked into work at the 'big co-op' on the morning of Saturday 24th November.

Suddenly, a loud noise startles me and I look over to see Easingwold Town Band assembling themselves in the corner. 'Today is the Day!' I think happily to myself.

MARTON IN THE FOREST St.Mary’s Church

#


16th November, 2018.


During the First World War 13 men from the Parish of Marton cum Moxby went to serve in the armed forces, of that number only 6 came home and sadly no memorial to those who fell was ever made. To mark the Centenary of the Armistice in 1918 it was felt that that omission should be rectified. During the intervening years all the farms have changed hands and although they were all visited in an attempt to discover more information very little direct contact with earlier families was possible...

Easingwold running club

#


9th November, 2018.


Do you remember outdoor camping as a kid? Looking up, trying to pick out those sparks of light which move. Not stars. Slowly travelling. Reflections. These days going running includes searching for satellites too. GPS and all that tech stuff. We’re all experts hiding behind the boffins. And it’s so annoying when it won’t connect… like, now! My Strava upload just won’t happen and it’ll be as if I, gulp, didn’t actually run. Naked without my TomTom/Garmin/Nike/Fitbit… Call it an electric (well, battery) experience to add to the actual act of moving forward using your legs. Electric and definitely eclectic… every run/cycle/swim is different...

Eleven members of Brandsby WI, plus 6 " significant others" boarded the train on Sunday, October 14th to take London by storm. Our first stop was 38 storeys up to see the remarkable Sky Garden.

Several of us then visited The Jewel Tower, part of the Palace of Westminster, and built in the 14th century to house the king's jewels. A jolly evening followed...

A ‘WINDY’ NIGHT!?

As storm ‘Callum’ gusted outside Easingwold Parish Church last Friday evening, we were treated to a much more tuneful use of ‘wind’: that of the breath of the musicians of Easingwold Town Band, who had come to help us celebrate the 600th anniversary of the church! They were welcomed by our vicar, Rev. Margaret Young, who introduced the band’s Musical Director, Alistair Shipman. He started them off with the rousing march “Slaidburn”, which really had the rafters ringing! There followed the hymn tune: “Blaenwern”, after which we heard Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “I Don’t Know How to Love Him”, with the flugelhorn solo played by Duncan Law...
