Baking Feast: at Pateley Bridge Memorial Hall on Saturday, March 23. The idea behind the event is to raise money for a team of doctor and nurses on a medical mission to Peru. When in Peru they will supply much needed medical care to some of the most remote areas along the Amazon River.

People are invited to donate their best baking to this charity event. These tasty delights can also be entered into a competition with a chance to win a prize. Entries can be submitted at the memorial hall 10am-1pm before the doors open to the public at 2pm when the tasty delights will be served with tea and coffee and live music. The target is £20,000 which will be used to supply the medical care for the patients for a full month on board the boat. The team aim to purchase an ultrasound machine for the boat which will revolutionise treatment. Contact Matthew Hick 07708398289.

Pateley Bridge & Upper Nidderdale Bowling Club: play on the crown green bowling green in the park at Pateley Bridge. They run three teams who play in the Harrogate & District Evening League on Mondays and Tuesdays, two teams who play in the Harrogate & District Veterans League on Friday afternoons and two teams who play in the Airedale and Wharfedale League on Saturday afternoons. They also hold quite a few club competitions during the season, usually on a Sunday and social bowling takes place most evenings. When the weather is nice, the bowling green attracts a lot of locals as well as visitors, who gather to enjoy the sunshine and watch the matches. The ages of their members range from 11 upwards and their Juniors would strongly disagree that bowling is for the elderly; it is a sport that is enjoyed by all ages. Everybody is welcome to come and try their hand at bowling and hopefully join in the fun. If you are interested in playing bowls, then ask one of the members if you see them bowling on the green or phone Bill, the chairman, on 07849 245266.
