Spring Fayre

Our Spring Fayre took place on the 2nd of April and once again was an amazing success. We also had another fantastic response from the village, so a big thank-you to everyone who came along. We were fortunate to have Kris Hopkins our MP as our special guest and he presented prizes and drew the raffle! As always we are indebted to those village businesses who donated raffle prizes. Many, many thanks go to: The Co-op, Addingham Newsagents, Old Station Fisheries, Cameo, The Olive Branch, The Swan Pub, Planet Earth, The Sandwich Shop, Addingham Pharmacy, The Addingham Social Club, The Crown Pub, Andrew Green Motors, The Sailor Pub, Locks of Love and The Craven Heifer. You are all stars !

 

Planning and the Environment.

Last month we asked for any member with experience/interest in Planning matters to contact Malcolm Keeble, with a view to joining our Planning Sub-Group. Malcolm had a great response and the group has now been strengthened. On the back of this response we have also formed a brand new ‘Environmental’ Sub-Group who will be: ‘acting locally to protect and enhance our natural environment’. The new team has a wealth of experience and are looking forward to the challenges ahead ! The Parish Council will be involved and we are delighted to be working with them again on another project. It’s very early days of course but look out for more information.
