2014 - Happy New Year

Happy New Year - and a little look back at 2013 on the village website


We started 2013 with a bit of snow, which came as a shock to the system and then in February we had a close brush with earth-grazing asteroid DA2013.

Spring was a long time coming but eventually we were able to follow Richard Wainwright sowing beans on a mild April evening.

In May we saw robots planting potatoes in the surrounding fields and enjoyed a joint Art and Photography Exhibition. Also the Parish Council joined the internet age and acquired it's own page on the website - many thanks to Jem Charles, Parish Clerk, for diligently posting notices and minutes of meetings.

As spring melted into summer Rosa Naylor asked for help developing the back churchyard into a wildflower meadow, we learnt that Network Rail proposed to close the Low Hutton level crossing, your author went on one of his endless photo ramblings and war was declared on Himalayan Balsam.

Autumn brought the Produce Show, a ride in a combine harvester and a pair of bus shelters.

In October we were proud to advertise the publication of Murray Naylor's book, we visited a Taize meeting in the church and the website acquired a Flickr photo account to show off some of the pictures that we've accumulated over the years.

Throughout the year we've been supported by regular news - Meeting Point, Taize, Book Club and more - so a big thank you to everyone who's provided news and articles for the website, we couldn't have done it without you.

Have a happy 2014.
