A reminder of the meeting next Thursday, 7 March at 7pm in the Village Hall for all gardeners and volunteers taking part in this year’s Open Gardens.
All are welcome to attend to discuss final details of this great community event planned for Sunday 26 May which raises funds for our village hall.
Don’t be beguiled by that harmless looking exterior – those twinkly eyes, the gap toothed smile, and the quaint old ways – you should never mess with a little old woman.
Jan Blake gets right down to the business of what happens when we misjudge our elders. Meet the old women who aren’t so much aged, as ageless, and with the superpowers to match. Be so foolish as to underestimate them and you’ll get everything you deserve. Expect a dose of powerful geriatric magic, transformation and a good serving of comeuppance!
Next meeting on Wednesday, 13 February in the Village Hall, Brigsteer at 7:30pm.
Susan Millard, author of many books on horses and ponies, will reveal the History of Cumbria's Fell Ponies.

The training is on Thursday evening 31st January at 8.00pm at the village hall
