GRINDLETON: Rock The Park evening planned

Gourmet - Grindleton’s Recreation Ground committee organised another successful Galloping Gourmet evening.

After drinks at the home of Anne Huson, gallopers sprinted up and down Main Street, Back Lane and several ginnels in between to dine at the homes of the generous hosts. Then everyone repaired to the school hall for a selection of puddings, donated by villagers, followed by an auction, where £2,200 was raised helped by the efforts of Mandy Brennan, Vic Morris and Phil Wilkinson. The committee thanked all who donated auction prizes and to Ruth Cann for masterminding the arrangements. The money will go to the upkeep of the recreation ground and to the Pavilion Project and will benefit from the matched funding. Everyone had a great evening.

Now villagers are looking forward to the annual sports day on June 11th followed by “Rock the Park” evening with live music and dancing. Tickets available from Anne Huson (01200 440141) or Caroline Waters (01200 440415).

On Sunday, June 12th, there will be a Proms in the Park Picnic on the recreation ground with music, stalls and games, donkey rides and much more. Admission free, marquee provided. Bring all the family for a picnic and a fun day out.

The next meeting to discuss plans for the Pavilion Project will be on Wednesday, July 6th, at 7-30 in St Ambrose School Hall. Check the website: www.grindleton.org
