A Year In Farndale – Film at the Village Hall

Phil Collier Talk

Phil’s talk on his early farming life in Bransdale and Farndale was a huge success!! The hall was almost full, and everyone enjoyed a good talk, cuppa and plenty of cake!  The evening also raised around £500 all in aid of St Mary’s Church in Farndale.  Thanks to everyone who came along, and the helpers.

£558.80 raised for Marie Curie!

The Tea & Cake Day raised an amazing £558.80 for Marie Curie – thanks to everyone who baked, came and helped, and came and ate cake!! Also for the craft group who also had a stall selling items they had made, with all proceeds again to Marie Curie.

Lovely walk over the moor on a sunny day!

The Farndale and Friends Walking Group had a lovely walk up from Church Houses, up Monket Bank and across the moor.  Everyone stopped for a picnic and a look at the view down the dale before coming back down via Horn End and back to the Village Hall for a cuppa and to discuss the next walks.

The walk planned for Saturday 19th Feb is cancelled because of the bad weather.  The next walk is on Sunday 6th March, meet 11.45am at the Village Hall.
