Open Gardens – Thank you


Thank you to everyone who supported the event, by opening their gardens, helping in the village hall, baking cakes and so much more.

We raised an amazing £1313.

We were lucky with the weather – a sunny day between two very wet days so we had lots of visitors.

Congratulations to the winners of the Bugs, Bees and Butterflies Trail:

  • Clair for her witty snail’s race
  • June & Gina for the beautiful flower butterflies
  • Yvonne for Charlotte the Spider.

Playing Fields AGM

It’s the Playing Fields AGM on Wednesday 27th March at  8pm at The Melbourne Arms.

We are currently trying to attract a few new faces to join the Committee.  This would not be a big commitment but a little extra help would be very much appreciated so that we can remain in a strong position.

Last year we had a good year and we want it to continue!

We secured a grant from Barmby Moor Kids Club so all the equipment is now up to date and our fundraising events were very well supported.  The PuB and Pizza night in September raised £782 for Playing Fields funds thanks to Andrew and Josh Gill providing delicious pizza’s from their wood fired pizza oven.  We also received a grant from the Parish Council.

We appreciate all the help that the Friends provide supporting the various events and helping maintain the Playing Fields etc.   We couldn’t manage without you, but we do need a few more faces on the Committee so that we can continue to run.
If you can help or know of someone who might be able to help please let us know or just come along to the AGM.

It is intended to plant a new beech hedge on the boundary where the trees have been cut down.

Village Hall ‘Sponsor a chair’ appeal – winners

Update to the Village Hall chairs fundraising events (see below for more details on past events:

The 100 square fundraiser for the village hall chairs was won by Erica Kirk and Gill Reid.

Congratulations and “Thank you” to everyone who took part!


The new chairs arrived on the 24th October.  

Thank you to everyone who has sponsored a chair so far.  Chairs are still available to sponsor


The fundraising activities were launched at the August Social Saturday and we’ve already raised £780.00.

Thank you to all those who gave so generously.

We still need to raise about £2,000.00 to be able to purchase 60 matching chairs.


The next phase of the Village Hall refurbishment is the replacement of our increasingly wobbly chairs.

Village Hall – ‘Sponsor a chair’ appeal.

To do this we need to raise serious funds.  We have received a grant of £500.00 from the Parish Council, but we need to buy at least 60 chairs at £45 each.

The Village Hall has recently purchased a small number of toddle size chairs and a low table useful for children’s arts and craft work.

We’ll be holding fundraisers, but also asking village organisations, businesses and individuals if they will support us by sponsoring a chair, part of a chair, or even more than one chair.

The fundraising activities will be launched at the August Social Saturday on the 25th August.  We hope that we will have a chair to view on the day.
