Carol singing at the Castle

Spofforth Primary School and St Aiden' High School in Harrogate came together last Friday for a community carol singing event.  This was the first of its kind which took place in the Castle Ruins.  Members of the St Aiden's Brass Band accompanied children from Spofforth School as well as parents and members of the local community as they sang a range of Christmas Carols in the ruins. Headteacher Paul Griffiths said "It was incredibly atmospheric singing in the Castle ruins.  We are so lucky having a resource like the Castle on our door step"

Carols around the Christmas Tree

thumb_resized_community_singing.jpgFriday 16th December saw the Annual Carol Concert in the Millennium Garden.  Thanks to Sarah & Simon Giddings for making simply the best mulled wine and mince pies and of course the music with thanks to Edmund Richman and his team. 

Thanks also to William Giddings who read beautifully, to Myra for taking the Lesson, to Pete Lawson for setting up and to the residents of Zennia Terrace for saving the day with their electricity (without which there would have been no tree lights!).

The collection on the night raised £125 towards the renovation of the village hall toilets.


Have you been down to the playground lately?

imgp1910.jpgThe Parish Council have arranged for two wood carvings to be installed by Rose Bax, talented local chainsaw sculptor. 

One is of two badgers which has been created using the felled sycamore tree which was damaged in recent storms.

The second carving uses a felled oak tree and is of two very cheeky squirrels and a seat. 

 Go down to Ginny Greenholes - they are well worth seeing!
