Staveley Ladies: following the recent planning meeting a programme of events has been organised with the first outing being a cinema trip to see Lincoln at Wetherby Cinema on Tuesday, February 12. The March event will be ten pin bowling with food at Menwith Hill on March 18 and on April 9 members will travel to York to see the Rocky Horror Show at the Grand Opera House. I have been asked to mention that the group is open to all ladies in Staveley and that new members are very welcome to join the activities. Contacts are Libby Child on 01423 340552 or Jude Robertson on 01765 677876 for more information.

Church News: in memory of the late Joan Simpson, All Saints Church, Staveley has purchased a wrought iron Advent candle holder with a suitably inscribed plaque. Bernadette Macnamara has drawn up a new management plan for Staveley churchyard to improve the appearance and provide a better backdrop for wedding photographs whilst at the same time helping to promote the planned wildflower areas.

Race Night: tickets and horses are selling well for the race night on Saturday, February 23 in the village hall. Please call me for tickets or more details on 01423 340442.
