First Peggy Day – 11th November 2017

Come along and join in on the very first ‘Peggy Day’ (named in memory of a former resident Peggy Hesketh* who did much to keep the Village alive).

On the 11th November (as part of the Saturday Social between 10am – 12pm) we will be planting spring bulbs and tidying the area around the Village Hall.

* PEGGY HESKETH 16 Aug 1936 – 20th Feb 2017

Peggy spent almost all her life in Seaton Ross, as daughter, farmer’s wife, mother and, from the early 1990’s, helping and leading village organisations. She will be remembered in many ways but particularly in the village for her quiet and unending work for the Village Hall and the parish plot.

Peggy also demonstrated accomplished craft skills, particularly fine examples being the wall hangings in the village hall.

Peggy was a well known figure in the village, whether working in the village plot, riding her bicycle to Pocklington, helping out in the kitchen at the village hall, delivering leaflets and the Seaton Ross Times, or collecting 150 Club money.

She was always busy but always had a smile and time for a chat.

She was a very special person.
