Blues & Country with Five Loose Chippings – Saturday, 30 November at the Village Hall
This Thirsk-based group of musicians play a whole range of music from Blues, Country, Bluegrass and classic western swing. They have all played in other formats to sell-out audiences over the last few years. Audiences have described them as “amazingly entertaining and foot-tappingly sensational”. Doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets priced at £8 including supper, are now available from Doug Allan (578526), Judith Lowe (577911) or Amanda at the Swaleside Holiday Park. Bring your own drinks.
Senior Citizens’ Christmas Lunch – 10 December, lunch served at 12.30pm
Once again Christmas lunch will be served to senior citizens from our two villages. Places are limited so make your booking as soon as possible. Tickets are only £15 and that price includes the three course lunch, choice of wine and mince pies and coffee. Contact Judith Lowe on 577911.
Village Halls Celebration – Coffee Morning – Saturday 25 January 2020 - 10am to 12 noon
Every year there is a national celebration aimed at highlighting the importance of village halls within local communities. The 2020 event will be held from 20 to 26 January. The committee at our local village hall has agreed to participate and will be holding a coffee morning on Saturday, 25 January between 10am and 12 noon. Our village hall is different – possibly unique – in that it is shared between two communities on opposite sides of a river, in different parishes, different boroughs, different county divisions and even different parliamentary constituencies. That means that we have double the number of elected representatives who are there to look after our interests! So we will be inviting parish councillors, district council and county council representatives and our two Members of Parliament to come along and meet their constituents and see our village hall. It could be a great opportunity for elected politicians and residents of Topcliffe and Asenby to get together over a cup of tea or coffee in a friendly environment. Put a note in your diary.
