The Village Hall will be closing over the Christmas period from Tuesday 22nd December until Monday 4th January.

The Community Library closes at Noon on the 19th December until Monday 4th January ( open 3-4.p.m )

Despite not being able to hold our Annual General Meeting in December it would still seem an appropriate time to thank Gargrave Village Hall committee members for all their work behind the scenes in this very difficult year. Special thanks to Robert, Simon and Lynn who have done sterling work over the year. Thanks too must be extended to our small group of Hirers who have been able to return with their classes. The risk assessments they have been duty bound to create have been comprehensive and compliant. They have acted in a very responsible manner and have ensured that safety has been paramount. Unfortunately the Tier restrictions introduced recently have had a knock on effect on pupil attendance so some teachers have found it financially difficult to continue. The loss of Tier 3 pupils has also altered the dynamics in some groups. Hopefully at some point in the New Year if nearby areas can get the Tier 3 dropped to a 2 Tier then pupils can return once more.

We still have hundreds of books in stock at the Village Hall, very reasonable prices, 50p per paperback, £1 hardbacks. If you have a particular author or title you would like please don`t hesitate to contact  07989585564 or drop a note through the front door of the Hall. Any sales can be made at a social distance, cash only please. Proceeds for Village Hall funds.

We are also happy to support fund raising for Manorlands, again lots of household, general items available, please contact the above with any requests.

Please note on the gallery image on the front page, the tealights are now sold.

We wish all our patrons, friends and the wider community a very Happy and above all a Healthy Christmas.
