to the efforts of an enthusiastic group of residents, the village hall is
in the throes of yet another
Much of the kitchen has already been re-painted and with new
curtains and light shades, it is scarcely recognisable.
The men's toilet is the scene of some serious on-going demolition
work. Should anyone feel they
have time and expertise to spare, they will be very welcome.

Stubbs residents turned out in force at Kellington for the last JAG
meeting earlier this month. As
a direct result of the problems they raised - speeding traffic, accidents,
dangerous junctions, poor road surface etc. - Cridling Stubbs was made one
of two priority areas to be targeted
for action by the appropriate authorities. (Speeding on the A19 at Whitley
was the other).

Selby District Council and other bodies will make a concerted effort to
overcome the problems raised.
Abbott stressed the importance of people keeping their car keys secure, in
order to prevent “2 in 1 burglaries” which is where keys are stolen
from a house and then the car itself is stolen.
next JAG meeting will be held on 10th December at 7pm, probably at
Womersley Village Hall. All
resident are welcome to attend to raise concerns and make comments about

items in a match box”, this
year’s produce show has new children’s categories.
Hopefully scarecrows, dinosaurs and hats will eliminate the dead
insect and toenail type of items which had been known to lurk in the match
