YCA News: the ladies of the Burnt Yates cum Hartwith branch of the Yorkshire Countrywomen’s Association hosted an evening with other members of groups in the Nidderdale Circle at the beginning of the month, when Alison Moore came to talk about liquorice and give out samples to try. She also sells other sweets and chocolates from her four shops, Mooresallsorts and stocks an amazing 900 different varieties. She had some lovely goodies on sale so the evening proved to be fascinating if temptingly fattening! The next meeting will be at the Bay Horse Community Centre on Tuesday, November 5 when Pandora Heap will be making Christmas cards.

Burnt Yates School News: the junior children seem to have been having a very active time recently. Nine children from Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a trip to Coniston Wate Park with children from Saltergate School where they tried ghyll scrambling, canoeing, sailing climbing and walking. Sixteen children took part in a cross country event at Nidderdale High School and the children also competed in a swimming gala.

Hampsthwaite School News: earlier this month, the children marked National Book Week with a series of events including a dance workshop, inter-house book quiz and making large scale reading based displays. Term ends on Friday, October 26.
