Yetton Hub’s trip to Lincoln

16 June LincolnWednesday 22 June was Yetton Hub’s Summer trip out. Nineteen of us went to sunny Lincoln for the day. There was lots to see – the medieval cathedral and castle, the Baysford Pool [ an inland port area] roman remains, a Bishop’s Palace, a genuine copy of Magna Carta and of course shops! In fact some of the group  enjoyed the day so much that they are going back again soon to sample the things they hadn’t time to do  or see on their first visit!

YT’s 200 Club – new season starts September

200 logoYT’s 200 Club – new season 2016/17
We have just come to the end of Yetton Together’s 200 Club fourth year [ Last draw for the 2015/16 season was on June 21th]  A big thank you to those of you who have supported us over this time. We really appreciate it.

In all £1020 in prize money was distributed to some of the 190 numbers bought. An increase of 57 since last year!
[A list of all this 2015/6 season’s winners can be seen below.]

After expenses (printing costs £40, licence fee £20 etc) £1280 was raised. This money has been used towards funding 18 extra hanging baskets this year. They will cost over £1000 [includes a watering contract] – the increase in cost is due to us having to source them from a new supplier as Kirklees Nurseries no longer produce them. We hope you enjoy the baskets and that you will be able to continue to support us.
Hanging basket

This year to bring the Club accounts in line with YT’s other accounts, the 200 Club’s new year will start in September so there will be no draws in July and August.  But feel free to send you subscription at any time over the next two months.

The concept of the club is simple. You buy a numbered ‘share’ (for £12 per year) which is put into a monthly draw with 3 chances to win. Or if you are feeling generous 2 numbers for £24. This gives the ‘shareholder’ 36 or 72 [ 2 numbers] chances of winning some money – up to £50* per month over the year.

There will be an application form in the June edition of Yetton News but if you are already a member and  just wish to renew your membership you can let me know by e mail and then drop off / post your subscription at your leisure. Your new membership card will then be sent out. Cheques to be made out to – Yetton Together 200 Club

June crime reports – updated

Criminal Damage – Motor vehicle 14 Jun 2016 2210 complainant stops his car as route is blocked by suspect’s vehicle. Suspect approaches from behind and throws golf club at complainant’s car causing minor damage. Complainant drives off and reports incident. Wellhouse Lane, Kirkheaton,

I am pleased to write that there has been no reported crime in the Kirkheaton area for the period 5th to the 12th June.

A weekend of celebrations !

What a great success! The Kirkheaton Scouts & Guides, Yetton Together and the combined Churches worked together to bring about a wonderful weekend of activities(11th and 12th June) in Kirkheaton to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

On Saturday you could visit two beautiful open gardens at 22 (Eric) and 28 Lane Side (Sarah & Ray Brown).
At 28 the smell of cooking sausage and beef burgers lingered in the air to draw you to the centre of a most wonderful garden – complete with summer house, swing, and children’s games amongst trailing wisteria.
At 22 you could enjoy outstanding views and enjoy coffee and cake.

Saturday afternoon saw the United Reform Church hosting a tea party for the more senior of our community. What a splendid time they had with traditional sandwiches, cream scones and even a birthday cake especially for her Majesty. Candles were blow out by two of the most elderly at the party – both 99 years young. Flags were waved as everyone sang  the old favourites –  Keith Durkin’s rendition of Danny Boy brought tears to many an eye.

In the evening people enjoyed the Ceilidh hosted by St John’s with a live band and hot beef sandwiches (sop supper).

Sunday saw an early start with lots of hard work setting up the Gala Field, next to Kirkheaton Community Centre, but when the parade arrived, the stallholders were ready and the community entered the field it was all worthwhile. The Parade led by Vic, the Town Crier, followed by the Gala Queen Millie arrived with her three attendants, Melisa, Guide; Bella, Brownie; Ella, Rainbow in a vintage car kindly loaned by Cartwright’s Cars.

Crowning of the Gala Queen was by Wendy Gill, Assistant County Commissioner who was presented with a bouquet by two cubs.
Yetties Cafe inside the Community Centre was very busy and the Library Volunteers and Staff helped children to do craft activities within the Library.

Even though the weather was not kind to us we believe that people really enjoyed the spirit of the Gala. They were entertained throughout the day by Huddersfield Crusaders – Majorettes; Huddersfield Rock Choir and Grange Moor Brass Band. Thanks to Richard Tree, the Volunteer DJ who kept the proceedings going.

A big thank you to all the Leaders, Sponsors, Volunteers and Stallholders and a great big thank you to the Gala Committee for such a wonderful achievement and for the great support, as always, that our small village give to us.

50 Artists make Kirkheaton 10th Arts Festival a great success

16 June Arts 1aNearly 800 people visited Kirkheaton’s 10th Arts Festival over the May Bank Holiday weekend, 28th – 30th May, held in the Parish church.

‘We had a fantastic selection of work on show, from more than 50 artists’ says the Rector, the Revd Richard Steel, ‘including a young girl from the village who was exhibiting photographs for the first time and some material from an artist who has been invited to America to show her unusual string sculptures.’

‘And we had so many children in over the weekend that the volunteer doing craft with them had to bring in extra stocks – and so many people overall that we almost ran out of cake!’
