The Church Fete held this Sunday to raise funds for the church roof appeal was blessed with dry weather which helped produce an unexpectedly high attendance from visitors and locals alike, which in turn produced over £900 for the appeal. Afternote: follow-on sales and contributions have now raised the figure to over £1000 – a splendid effort all round.
There were plant and handicraft stalls, sales of old books, a treasure trail for the children and the ever popular tombola and tea and cake stalls in the church. The crowds were entertained with some wonderful singing by a local choir, the Moorland Singers, all of which made for a traditional village fete.
Heartfelt thanks to all who helped organise the event and ran the various stalls, those who contributed tombola prizes and items for sale and to the choir for their contribution to a very pleasant and successful afternoon.
You will have noticed a lot of BT Openreach operatives and vans in the village recently – well, the good news is that fibre optic cables have been laid from the exchange at Lastingham through to Rosedale Abbey, with work ongoing to extend coverage through the village and up to Thorgill.
Once the contractors have completed the fibre cable laying, it is expected that customers will be able to connect to the network by late July/early August to receive up to 100mps broadband service. More details are being sought and will be published as soon as known.
