FANS - Friends and Neighbours of Bolton-by-Bowland were treated to a Christmas gifts and cooking show by Janet Kennedy, of Pampered Chef.

Janet, explained how the company has grown from a teacher in Chicago, who hand delivered kitchen utensils door-to-door 30 years ago, into a worldwide company, established in the UK for 11 years. The catalogue now holds 200 products.

Janet cooked a turkey and cranberry ring and mini vegetarian quiches with help from volunteers for all to taste. Thanks were given by Cathrine Curry.

All the money raised will go towards the carol singing charities which, this year are, East Lancashire Hospice and Crossroads.

Members meet at 6-30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 7th, outside the Coach and Horses for the next meeting, carol singing round the village, for non-singing members meet at 8-30 p.m.

Young farmers - Bolton-by-Bowland Young Farmers’ Club hosted the annual village bonfire on Saturday which was a great success with a fantastic turnout of members, families and friends. Thank you to all who helped on the night and brought hot-pots which were greatly appreciated.

The annual dinner dance was held last Friday at The Spread Eagle, Sawley. This was also a success and thank you to all who attended and enjoyed a fantastic evening. The event had lots of support not only from club members, but from other clubs in the region. It was a proud night to celebrate another successful year for Bolton-by-Bowland Young Farmers’ Club and well done to members who received trophies.

Next week’s meeting is on Monday at The Paint Pot, Backridge. Members meet at the village hall at 6-45 p.m. and please bring £5.
