Village Hall Event: A community coffee morning and table top sale at Barwick Village Hall tomorrow, Saturday, will be the latest to raise funds for improving and maintaining the hall. They have proved highly popular since they were started last year. Organisers have also given some of the money raised to a local or regional charity, including the life-saving Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Tomorrow’s event will begin at 10am and run until noon. The charity to benefit from some of the proceeds will be Macmillan Cancer Support and their dedicated team of nurses. Admission will cost £1 and includes refreshments. Local organisations, including the Barwick branch of the Women’s Institute and the Scottish Country Dancing and Indoor Bowls groups which meet at the village hall, will be among those showcasing their work (the WI will have a homemade cake stall). Demand to hire a table at a cost of £5 is always high but to enquire about remaining availability please call 0113 2813167 or email: barwickvillagehall@hotmail.co.uk
Commenting on the latest improvements made to the village hall, local resident Elaine Reason told the Wetherby News that new toilets for ladies and for disabled people had been completed and a new gents’ toilet would soon be finished. The committee remains hopeful of success with their recent Lottery funding application, though it could be next Spring before this might become available. If it does then upgrades to the hall’s heating system, ceiling repairs and the installation of fire doors will be high on the ‘jobs to do’ list. The village hall is a vital meeting place and social venue and deserves to be supported.
Dogs’ Trust Open Day: Hundreds of dog lovers are expected to converge on the Dogs’ Trust centre at Woodlands Farm, York Road, Barwick on Sunday, August 3, for an open day and fun dog show. There will be lots of attractions and entertainment available from 11am onwards. Entry will cost £1 for a family of up to four people and car parking will also be £1. Further details can be obtained by calling 0113 2814937.
Ladies’ Fellowship: A summer coffee morning will be held by members of Barwick Ladies’ Fellowship on Tuesday, August 12, at numbers 2 and 3 Richmondfield Crescent. Proceeds will go to the All Saints’ Church refurbishment fund.
Big Occasion: Scholes Community Forum members were delighted to learn this week that Her Majesty The Queen will be represented at the Service of Thanksgiving on Saturday, September 6, when the village’s Memorial Trees will be re-dedicated. The Deputy Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, Michael Fox DL and his wife Mrs Lynn Fox have confirmed they will attend. The Deputy Lord Lieutenant is one of the Queen’s personal representatives in West Yorkshire. The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Leeds, Councillor and Mrs Frank Robinson, will also be present, as will local MP Colin Burgon and the Archdeacon of Leeds, Canon Peter Burrows. As reported earlier in the Wetherby News, the thanksgiving service at St.Philip’s Church, Scholes, will be conducted by Dr Alan Stanley, a Lay Reader at the church. The 23 Memorial Trees commemorate the sacrifice made by men of the village who lost their lives in two world wars, as well as paying tribute to members of the Armed Forces who have lost their lives in more recent conflicts.
Barwick Bowling Club: A recent open day held at the village bowling club attracted two prospective new members, though the club would welcome many more. Later this month, on August 31 to be precise, the club will host the annual friendly competition played between the bowlers of Barwick and Scholes for the Sleights Trophy. This was given to the clubs by a former parish councillor. Four sets of doubles games and eight singles matches decide which village will hold the trophy for the next year.
Nigel Ogden to Visit: Anyone who listens to the Radio 2 programme ‘The Organist Entertains’ will be familiar with the name of its presenter, Nigel Ogden. Members of Barwick Methodist Church have successfully invited Nigel to visit the village on Friday, September 12 to play at a Celebration Concert, at 7.30pm. Admission, costing £6, will be by ticket only. The concert will be a highlight of the Methodist Church’s Harvest Thanksgiving Weekend.

An e-mail was received from Jack, to the relief of his family on Friday, August 10. Jack had really enjoyed the trekking, and found Macchu Picchu amazing, travelling a further 700m up a mountain to get a birds eye view of the site. Unfortunately, Jack got a really bad cold towards the end of the trek, and had to miss the last day of the trek, as he could not get enough oxygen into his body and so had to walk for two hours on a mountain road instead, which he said was very pretty. He had a second bout of illness on the trek into the rain forest, the dreaded sickness and diarrhoea, and could not actually go into the rain forest, instead enjoying a boat ride and a swim in an aquamarine river pool! Team One on returning back to Cusco, began their rest and relaxation activities. Jack went white water rafting, and after a few fun rapids jumped from a bridge into the river, which he said was awesome! They travelled to Lake Titicaca to see the floating islands. Many thanks must go once again to all who have supported Amy and Jack in their fundraising, enabling them to experience a trip of a lifetime! Hopefully much more detailed news next week!
