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. I'm immediately greeted with huge smiles from members of the scouting association, who are stood around a table laden with cakes, party hats and cheerful flower garlands. 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. Today we get to give over 25k to our local community...

Easingwold U7 vs York Railway Institute

#


30th November, 2018.


As the rain poured, Easingwold romped to another victory. 4-0 wasn’t too flattering, it could have been more with the post coming to the rescue. Noah in goal made some amazing saves with the RI manager noting that he “had a worldy” of a performance to ensure a clean sheet...the only thing clean on a muddy wet pitch...

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...
