Flower & Produce Show - New Committee Members Needed

Flower & Produce Show – new committee members are required due to some of the current group standing down after this years show.

If the show is to continue we need to replace those leaving and expand the team by a couple of extra members too. There are around 3 meetings a year, tasks to complete between meetings and a commitment of time over the show weekend.

If you are interested please contact 01653 699 769 The first meeting will be in February 2017 so please come forward by the end of January.

BT is planning to disconnect and remove the red phone box in Low Hutton and is consulting the local authority.  This is part of an ongoing national programme reviewing usage, and hence "need" for, public payphones.  Apparently the telephone was not used at all during the 12 month monitoring period. 

If you have any views or concerns, or would like to know more, please contact one of your Parish Councillors as soon as possible.

More congratulations to our own Ruth & Neil Hannah who were awarded a Highly Commended at the North Yorkshire Community Awards  in the Best Project category.

Here they are at one of their Musical Memories sessions at the RVS in Pickering.

Musical Memories is a social enterprise working with Rural Action Yorkshire and other organisations to offer singing sessions to community buildings across the Ryedale district. Musical Memories sessions provide local residents, especially older people, the opportunity to get together in a social setting, to make new friends whilst having a good sing and reminisce about past times. Well done Ruth & Neil !
