The Church in the Dale Charities Festival: at Pateley Bridge showground on Sunday, July 21, noon-4pm. Over 40 local and national charities have been contacted to take part. They had all shown interest and we are now awaiting their confirmation of booking. Each charity will have information available and many will also run a stall to raise money for their cause. Both the North Yorkshire Police and Fire Service will be in attendance and there will be attractions for children. We hope to have live music throughout (do you know a group who would like to play?) and the afternoon will close with a short informal service. We need lots of manpower to control car parking, to act as stewards, to aid in setting/clearing up and also help with catering in the tea tent. There are lists in the churches please sign and give contact details in the relevant column. Attendance for charities and visitors is free, but donations will be appreciated.

The Sun is out: and it is time to clear out your winter wardrobe. Instead of throwing away clothes that still have life in them (especially if its just a matter of change in taste or size), you should drop them in to Teacups or Park View Stores as Julie is busy collecting for her annual jumble sale in aid of Cancer Research.
