Pannal Panto: don’t forget to buy your tickets for the dramatic event of 2013! Yes, that’s right, the time has come for the annual Pannal Players production. This year the production of Snow White runs from Wednesday, February 20 to Saturday, February 23. Performances are at 7.30pm each evening with a matinee at 2pm on Saturday afternoon. Tickets are available from Pannal Post Office and cost £5 for adults and £3 for primary school aged children. Don’t miss out, buy your tickets now!

Pannal pupil: I received a very nice email this week about a Pannal Primary pupil, Thomas Plant, who is in Year 4 and celebrated his ninth birthday in January.  He had a swimming party at Knaresborough Pool and invited 42 of his closest friends (popular boy!) from Pannal School and Harrogate Swimming Club to come along. Thomas chose to tell his friends that he would prefer not to receive presents or cards, but that people donate to St Michael’s Hospice instead.  He raised £385 for the hospice which I think is a marvellous amount of money to raise. Well done Thomas!
