TRACTOR RUN: The Knaresborough Charity Tractor Run is coming through Nidderdale on Sunday, March 17. The tractors again will be stopping off at Pateley Bridge Showground for their lunch break. This is a popular event to follow, especially with kids (and big kids!) as hundreds of tractors get involved. The event starts at the Harrogate Event Centre, Harrogate. Exact route and times will be published by the organisers the week leading up to the event. All funds raised go to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. If you want to take part with your tractor, you can sign up on the following link: You can follow the official organisers’ Facebook page by looking for "The Knaresborough Tractor Run" on Facebook.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: This continues at St Cuthbert’s Church, Pateley Bridge with the theme 'A Question of Faith’. The next one is on Wednesday, March 13 with Rev Alastair Ferneley - ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ Mark 15:34. Christianity has a bias to the disadvantaged. Suffering: Where is God in this messy world? Each event starts at 6.30pm with a bring and share meal also known as a ‘Faith Supper’ - well it is called a question of faith after all (we recommend finger food). At around 7pm the series of faith talks begins. The evening should conclude after prayers, hopefully no later than 8.30pm. You can join us for the Faith Supper at 6.30pm, or arrive for the talks 7pm prompt. You can then choose to leave after the talk or stay for the closing worship.
