Coffee Morning – 7 March 2020

The coffee morning held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 7 March was in aid of Guide Dogs for The Blind. The following is a message from Angela Gage, our local coordinator for the charity:

‘To all of you who supported the coffee morning in aid of Guide Dogs, a huge thank you from the Guide Dogs staff, from the people with sight loss, from the dogs whose dinners you provide and from myself.

These dogs help people to be independent and often fulfil their dreams. They provide companionship, support and protection as well as enabling their owners to socialise. I was therefore thrilled to be able to send a cheque for £300 to the charity from us all.

I also want to thanks Beth at the Coach House and to Margaret, Carol, Janet and Paddy for their help with the raffle. Angela’

The ever popular Carols On The Green, in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, took place on the village green on Monday 23 December at 6.30pm when a crowd of over fifty happy revellers enjoyed mulled cider and mince pies to accompany some lusty carol singing!

On The Green in 2019

Over £250 was collected for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance on the night, so heartfelt thanks to all who donated and to Adrian and Diane Crawford and Linda Chambers for the musical accompaniment, mince pies and mulled cider, an appropriate start to a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
