The weather did and didn`t hamper events last weekend. The film show was interrupted on the Friday for a short spell when the electric went off very briefly and typically just when the film reached that crucial stage. However power was restored and the audience went off happily knowing they knew the outcome of the story.
There was great support for the Coffee morning on Saturday which was organised jointly by the Gargrave Village Hall Management Committee and the Library group. A further event is planned for the 11th December.
The Flea Market began in reasonable weather and then the snow just kept falling. The electric went off for a good half hour or more and customers had stopped arriving due to the road conditions so stallholders packed up and made their slow journeys home. A great shame for Sheila who organises the end of the month Flea Markets, please come along and support her next one on Sunday January 30th. Gargrave Village Hall Management team have a Vintage, Collectables and Craft fair on the 12th December so they look forward to seeing customers old and new then.
This weekend we shall be hosting the North West Book Fair on Saturday. This is a fantastic opportunity to stock up on Winter reading ( next Book Fair at the Hall is not until March ) and Christmas book gifts. There will be thousands of books for sale on every subject, both general, speciality and antiquarian. It is hoped that a local author and illustrator of childrens books will be in attendance and she will be signing copies of her book. Light refreshments available until 3.p.m. Event open 10.a.m, closure 3.30.p.m. PLEASE NOTE THE CLOSURE TIME OF 3.30.P.M. THE GALLERY IMAGE TIME OF 4.P.M IS INCORRECT.
