1st Kyle Valley Scouts - celebrating another great year for our young members!

#

Easingwold’s first match of the 2019 Trophy event was a very tight match. Very much a two ended affair, Easingwold’s back three held out against some periods of extreme pressure but also managed to return the favour. In one period of play they had 3 corners in a row. Easingwold seemed to have the edge on the break but found to have difficulty getting the ball on target....

The Friends Of St Monica’s Hospital Charity Receives £351.32 From Sutton Park Or Easy Money From The Ice House?

#


11th January, 2019.


Last summer Ruth and I had a pleasant day out visiting Sutton Park in Sutton-on-the-Forest. In the grounds is a fine example of a 17th Century Ice House, which had to be visited. In the bottom were thousands of coins that people had thrown in, wishing well style. A notice on the wall said the coins were donated to the Friends of St Monica’s Hospital Charity. As Secretary of the charity I made enquiries as to when we could have them. Later two estate gardeners spent 2 hours digging the coins out, they weighed 43 Kilograms (94lbs)....

Stillington squash club Timed Handicap 2019

#


11th January, 2019.


Stillington squash held the Timed Handicap on Saturday 12th January. Each match is 10 minutes long, with the winner being the one ahead when time is called. This always creates plenty of tension, especially for the better player who has to race against time to catch their opponent. The final of the Plate competition was between Jon Wright and Ophelia Watson with Ophelia starting on a 7 point handicap. Although Ophelia kept Jon at bay for a good 5 minutes, Jon eventually won 24-20....

Easingwold Running Club

#


11th January, 2019.


Due to the unfortunate calendrical timing of the New Year, weather-wise that is...in the UK that is… Oh, it’s just a bit cold and grey and bleak and wet and dark isn’t it?! Sofas and fires and books and box sets and Christmas leftovers might be more appealing, but, putting that aside though, not to dwell on it at all, you might have noticed a good number of ‘hi-vis’ vests and headtorches floating along the streets of Easingwold....

Alne Church

#


11th January, 2019.


It has been confirmed that St Mary’s Church, Alne, located not far from Easingwold, has recently received a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant of £216,600 for a Restoration heritage project. Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the project aims to make watertight the roof which has been leaking for some years and replace the lead and repair masonry work. The grant will also enable us to then progress the installation of improved heating, lighting and security. As with many churches, the congregation finds the cost of maintaining this lovely old church very difficult but is determined to maintain it in a good state of repair so that future generations may also worship and engage with their community here. The HLF grant will enable this to happen....

Easingwold Lions Carols in the Market Place

#


5th January, 2019.


This event was originally planned for the 15th December however Storm Deidre put paid to that. With the prospect of high winds, freezing rain or snow we took the decision to postpone the event to the 22nd December. We took the decision to cancel the event early on Saturday to avoid unnecessary journeys and to keep everyone safe. We hoped that the weather would be kinder to us a week later and it was. With clear skies, very little wind and no prospect of rain we got cracking and rescheduled. Lions and volunteers led by Cassandra erected gazebos, set up lights, and a PA and waited in the hope that people would attend. Easingwold Town Council granted us permission to use the car park area, Easingwold Town Band gathered players from Swinton and Scarborough, Jessa sang, conducted and played a keyboard, singers sang beautifully....
