Easingwold running club

#


9th November, 2018.


Do you remember outdoor camping as a kid? Looking up, trying to pick out those sparks of light which move. Not stars. Slowly travelling. Reflections. These days going running includes searching for satellites too. GPS and all that tech stuff. We’re all experts hiding behind the boffins. And it’s so annoying when it won’t connect… like, now! My Strava upload just won’t happen and it’ll be as if I, gulp, didn’t actually run. Naked without my TomTom/Garmin/Nike/Fitbit… Call it an electric (well, battery) experience to add to the actual act of moving forward using your legs. Electric and definitely eclectic… every run/cycle/swim is different...

The Main Street through the centre of Alne has had new granite setts installed earlier in the year as an improvement by the Parish Council to protect the grass verges from being cut up by traffic. New resident to the village, David Lepper, suggested that the Parish Council might support a community event to plant spring flowering bulbs behind the new kerb stones to add a splash of colour.

The surface of the overflow car park at St. Monica’s Hospital has been causing concern for many months.

Brandsby WI visit to London

#


26th October, 2018.


Eleven members of Brandsby WI, plus 6 " significant others" boarded the train on Sunday, October 14th to take London by storm. Our first stop was 38 storeys up to see the remarkable Sky Garden. Unfortunately, it was wet and cloudy so we couldn't enjoy the incredible, 360 degree views it afforded but it was still well worth a visit. Several of us then visited The Jewel Tower, part of the Palace of Westminster, and built in the 14th century to house the king's jewels. A jolly evening followed...

A ‘WINDY’ NIGHT!?

#


19th October, 2018.


As storm ‘Callum’ gusted outside Easingwold Parish Church last Friday evening, we were treated to a much more tuneful use of ‘wind’: that of the breath of the musicians of Easingwold Town Band, who had come to help us celebrate the 600th anniversary of the church! They were welcomed by our vicar, Rev. Margaret Young, who introduced the band’s Musical Director, Alistair Shipman. He started them off with the rousing march “Slaidburn”, which really had the rafters ringing! There followed the hymn tune: “Blaenwern”, after which we heard Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “I Don’t Know How to Love Him”, with the flugelhorn solo played by Duncan Law...
