St James the Deacon church on Sherringham Drive is hosting a Strawberry Tea on Saturday 24 June from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. The suggested £5 charge will go towards the church lighting appeal.
The sun shone on a successful summer fair on Sunday 11 June hosted by Love to Eat and Friends of Chapmans Pond. The Energise climbing wall was a hit with the kids, and a number of local groups and organisations ran stalls including Dringhouses Library, West Thorpe Scouts, Woodthorpe Community Group and Dementia Yorkshire.
Cllr Stephen Fenton also took the opportunity to check out the new storage container that has arrived on site, funded through a ward committee grant to the Friends of Chapmans Pond. The container will be painted green, and there are plans to create a vegetation ‘camouflage.’
Residents on the Revival estate off Tadcaster Road organised a terrific family Easter event on Good Friday. There was a treasure hunt with clues deposited around the estate, and an Easter bonnet competition with lots of fantastic entries.
Staff from Tesco Askham Bar were there to serve free refreshments and run an Easter egg decorating stall.
Many thanks to the Revival Community Association for their hard work to make this happen.
The local Lib Dem councillors embraced Keep Britain Tidy’s ‘Great British Spring Clean’ weekend, with support from Dringhouses Scouts and local residents.
Litter picking took place in the Chaloners Road area, Moor Lane, Woodthorpe Green and around Askham Bar. The photos below give a flavour of what was achieved.
