Harvest Ceilidh and Faith Supper: Almscliffe Hall played host to this year’s harvest supper on Friday, October 5, organised by the churches of St Barnabas, Weeton and St. John the Evangelist, North Rigton. It was a wonderful evening with people coming together from all parts of the community. The Dogsbody Band put on a fabulous performance and even managed to get the most reluctant of dancers on their feet. All the hard work of the organisers paid off with a delicious meal for supper although you had to get in quick for a pudding, as the children were back for seconds before most of us had finished our main course! The event raised £200.

Pop in for a coffee: Almscliffe Tots opens its doors to parents and carers with children aged 0-four years on Friday, November 9 and 23, Friday, December 7 and join the preschool Christmas party on Wednesday, December 19.
