Christmas Party


Last weekend, 18 of the younger village children had great fun at a traditional Christmas party held in the festively-decorated Village Hall.  Game such as musical statues, pass the parcel, pinning the nose on Rudolph, prizes and presents were the order of the day.  The festive buffet was much enjoyed by children and helpers.


The party drew to a surprising finale with an unexpected visitor who arrived, resplendent, in red outfit and shiny black wellies. After chatting to the excited children, Santa distributed gifts which included soft toys, books, art and crafts kits, games and rucksacks.  There was even a surprise under the tree for Santa, which we understand he thoroughly enjoyed.  He hopes to be back next year!!!!

A big thank you to everyone who helped make this party a resounding success.


Forthcoming Events


Christmas Carols will be sung in several places around the village on 22nd December (this Sunday) starting at 6.30pm.


Anyone wanting to join in should meet at the junction of Wrights Lane and Cobcroft Lane.  Remember to bring a torch.  Seasonal refreshments will be on sale afterwards at the Village Hall.




The sale of photographs showing Cridling Stubbs in bygone days is proving very successful.  All proceeds go to the Village Hall.  Ask around for details.


Refuse Disposal


Until the end of March, residents can take their rubbish to Selby Road, Eggborough (not Weeland Road as previously advertised) on Saturdays between 8.00 and 10.00am.  A return to Ferrybridge Civic Amenity Site is still being negotiated between NYCC and WMDC.


Real Christmas trees can also be disposed of by recycling at Crown Garden Centre, Whitley on 4th and 5th January.


When is a bus stop not a bus stop?


When itís a Taxibus stop.  The new sign outside the village hall does not signify a general bus stop but is for the South Selby Taxibus.  Time tables are available on request.



Next Parish Meeting


The next Cridling Stubbs Parish Meeting is to take place on Tuesday 7th January 2003 at 7.00pm in the Village Hall.  Items on the agenda include the setting of the Parish Precept 2003-4, provision of litter bins in the village, the Educational Trust Fund, the application for Aggregates Levy Sustainability Funding, an update on the situation at Darrington Quarries, applications for funding to improve the village and dog fouling in the village.

A Happy New Year
