Pancake Day Fun


Cridling Stubbs Village Hall was, yet again, the venue for much laughter with pancake racing, table tennis and good food on the menu.


Races were held in three categories, children, veterans and golden oldies. One participant managed to lose half his pancake before the racing started, one made “heavy duty” pancakes (with extra flour) and some (yuk) wanted to actually eat the pancakes they had been tossing!!!!


Many of the races were photo–finishes but certainly the Bullough family were in fine form.


It is hoped that once the Village Hall has been rewired and the (recently donated) cooker installed it will be possible to have more “pancake events”.  An order for a pancake with chocolate sauce has already been placed……..


Thank you to all who took part in making this teatime session a big success.




The second “Friends of Cridling Stubbs” auction was held in the Village Hall on 18th March and raised £266.  Adults and children alike had great fun bidding for a selection of plants, games, toys, textiles, bedroom furniture, cane furniture, pictures, pottery, glassware, bottles and more.  Hopefully, the wardrobe, last seen in the middle of Wrights Lane, made it safely home!


Thank you to everyone who supported this event in any way.  At £50 per hour for planning consultant fees, the fight to improve our environment proves challenging in many ways.


Forthcoming Events


Thanks to a generous donation, “Friends of Cridling Stubbs” are holding a lucky Easter Egg competition.  Pay 50p for one of 60 lucky numbers and keep your fingers crossed.  A competition form is circulating the village.



Next Parish Meeting


The next Cridling Stubbs Parish Meeting is to take place on Tuesday 8th April at 7 pm in the Village Hall.  On the agenda will be the possibility of the Parish buying The Ancient Shepherd, Darrington Quarries planning application, and the appointment of a new Parish Clerk.

Table Tennis


For a £1 donation, and providing no electricity is used, the Village Hall is available for table tennis.  This is for a maximum of four players and an adult supervisor must be present at all times.  The Hall must be booked prior to playing by contacting a Committee member and Village Hall rules apply.


Village Hall AGM


Cridling Stubbs Village Hall Committee AGM will be held on Tuesday 8th April at 6.30 (this is ½ hour before the Parish Meeting).  Everyone is welcome to attend.
