Lynn and Caroline who are both involved with the work at the Village Hall have produced a calendar featuring photographs of In and around Gargrave. Both enjoy walking and taking photographs along the way, after they have paid the production costs they will be donating any proceeds to Gargrave Village Hall. A limited edition were printed and they have been on sale over the past two weeks, there will be the opportunity to buy one at both the film show on Friday evening ( 15th December ) or at the Coffee morning on Saturday ( 16th December ). They are also for sale in the library during opening hours and most days at the Village Hall with access via the kitchen door where they can be found on a sales table with a cash tin ( emptied daily ) for sales nearby. Alternately please call 07989 585564. The calendars are priced at £10.00 each. They hope the calendars give the recipients the same pleasure that it gave them when taking the photographs.

Gargrave Cinema Club will be showing the film “Nativity” on Friday evening, the ultimate Christmas feel good film for the whole family. The main characters are played by Martin Freeman, Ashley Jenson and Pam Ferris. The customary Cafe style seating will be in place so please bring your own refreshments. The Village Hall doors open at 7.p.m with the film starting at 7.30.p.m. Tickets are £5.00 on the door with accompanied under sixteens free. Sorry but only guide dogs are allowed in the Hall when films are shown. All proceeds from the evening go towards the cost of running the community Library.

A Coffee morning organised jointly by Gargrave Village Hall Management Committee and Gargrave Library will be held on Saturday morning from 10.a.m until Noon. Bacon sandwiches, toasted teacakes and lots of homemade cakes will be on the menu. A raffle will aid Library funds and proceeds from a Book and Bric a Brac stall will go toward Village Hall funds. The bumper 100 club Library draw will also be taking place.

All our thanks are extended to Harry and the members of the Craven Accordion band who played a delightful medley of tunes at the Collectable and Craft Fair which was held last Sunday at the Hall. It created a lovely festive feel to the day. The event was so well attended too which is great when there are so many other things happening in the area. Thank you to everyone who comes along to our Fairs, especially all our regular visitors, wonderful to see the friendships which have sprung up through the visits and special thanks to the lovely people who tell us that they really appreciate our wonderful venue. It makes all those voluntary hours seem worthwhile, we appreciate their thanks more than they realise.
