Further funding for the new village hall kitchen development

Spofforth Parish Council continue to organise events in order to raise funds for the development of a new bar and kitchen in the Village Hall to improve the facilities for every social occasion - for Clubs, Associations and of course for residents of Spofforth and neighbouring villages for chiildren's parties, family celebrations and fund-raising events!


A very successful fund-raising event was held in the Hall in February, with a Call My Bluff Wine & Cheese Evening - a great time was had by all and over £400 was raised.  Congratulations to the winners on the Hairbelle table - who obviously take their wine tasting very seriously indeed and to Di Ball's table who were only just pipped at the post!  Thanks to Chez Vin from Otley for providing the wine expertise and to all for attending and helping to make the evening a great success.

The Judges said that 'where community involvement is paramount Spofforth was always going to be the best; however, this newcomer to the UK Finals went that extra mile. From the minute you enter this village you know you are somewhere special with a dedicated and enthusiastic group making a real difference to their community, a joy to visit a pleasure to judge and as with all the finalists in this category a very humbling experience.'
