From Reverend Richard...
I have just been told of a rather nasty accident that happened yesterday afternoon to a cyclist going down Hipton Hill. As a result of the tarmac melting there is now a substantial hole in the road that can knock a cyclist off their bike, so either avoid it for the next day or so OR BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL.
The hole is about half way down on the left on the downward slope so I am informed.
Please feel free to pass this message on to any known cyclists.
This was sent out on Sunday 21st July 2013 – I am sure that the road will repaired fairly promptly. So this is only a temporary warning.
Anne Cain with trusty helpers did a spectacular job in tropical heat by keeping villagers and guests supplied with tea and cakes. Thanks also to Maureen Fletcher for doing the rounds with her ice lolley trolley. We raised about £225.
A big thank you to all of you who supported John Styler by making cakes and helping on the day in his lovely well tended garden. We raised about £960 for St. Richards Hospice and had a wonderful but rather hot day.
Carol Yates on behalf of the Village hall Committee
We know that the Lenches Club is looking tired and dated now and the current committee have decided to start the ball rolling towards a comprehensive facelift!
The first step has been to enrol the services of our local architect Steve Protherough who is in the process of drawing up the footprint of the existing club. This will then be copied and offered for distribution to all interested club Members for their thoughts and ideas.
This information can then be collated and progressed to a detailed design process in conjunction with raising funding, again after due consultation with Members
Watch this page for an update - this is YOUR Club and your suggestions will be eagerly awaited. Please make sure we have your up-to-date email address (see home page) to ensure speedy news!
