The flooding that has caused such devastation around the country seems to have left the local area better off than most. However, we haven’t escaped entirely.
Jack Sharkey took a few photos of the floods in around Littlethorpe and Narborough and thought we might like to see them.
Senior Citizens’ trip
The Senior Citizens’ Christmas outing is again to Stanton Lakes Restaurant. The date is Wednesday 11th December. Tickets are £17.50 per person, available from Liz on 286 5499. Thanks very much to Liz and Jackie for organising the trip, we hope everyone has a great afternoon.
This year Santa will be out doing his rounds in Littlethorpe on the evenings of Thursday 19th, Friday 20th and Saturday 21st December. Please note that this year there will be designated “Santa will stop here” points. Look out in the information sheet which will be posted through letterboxes early next month for the routes each evening and the designated stopping points.
If anyone would like to help us with organising events or has any ideas they would like to put forward please do come along to our meetings on the first Wednesday of the month, 8pm, alternately at The Plough and The Old Inn.
We held one of our popular Quiz Nights in early November; this time in the new venue of the Parish Centre. It was another sold-out event, and everyone had a lovely evening with some tricky quiz questions to tease everyone. Our next quiz will be in the springtime.
Coming up in the community library in November we have our Christmas Craft Sale on November 30th, 2-4pm. Why not pop in and see the unusual handmade gifts and crafts. Our Christmas raffle will be also be drawn at this event. Local businesses have been very generous supporting us and the prizes include hampers, wine, and many vouchers for meals out. Tickets are available from the library, or from Dales Coffee Shop.
We have now received our first ‘memory box’ full of items related to ‘childhood’. Come and see the school related objects and reminisce about your own school days. You could show your children/grandchildren how times have changed!
Narborough and Littlethorpe Community Library
Looking ahead to Christmas, the library will be shut from 23rd December to 2nd January inclusive so pop in before then if you want any holiday reads. We have a lovely selection of Christmas themed books for adults and children. You can still return books to the library during this time using the ‘book drop’ next to the front door.
The Community Library is entirely run and managed by volunteers. If you would like to join us, or contact us, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>. We always welcome new helpers. If you would like to start up a new community club or hire the library, please pop in and speak to us. Thank you for your continued support.
