See you in the Callister Hall - Gill Thackeray 0113 2892264

News from All Hallows: the usual services have continued throughout the summer with cover from the Revd Richard Wiggen when Rev Chris was on holiday. A new initiative has been started following the 8.00am Communion Service with tea or coffee and home made biscuits. This has proved quite popular and give the congregation an opportunity to have a chat. Also the Parish Secretary, Elizabeth Otty is sharing her knowledge on the pew sheet, of the writers of a hymn which is sung at the 10.30am service. It is really very interesting and much appreciated.

It opens at 2pm when the many entries will be on view. At 3pm an outdoor magic show for the children will be held and at 4.15pm a sale of produce. All afternoon refreshments will be available in the Callister Hall. Admission is a mere 50p for adults and 25p for school children. See you there!

Donkey Sanctuary Summer Fair: unfortunately it was decided to cancel this event in July due to the soggy conditions and difficult parking. Hopefully the weather will be good on Saturday when once again a super day has been organised. There will be the opportunity to meet the donkeys, cart rides, fun dog show, RAF Cadets 2388 Squadron, martial arts demo, trade stands and much more. It starts at 11am and continues until 4pm.

Scholes coffee morning: in view of the good cause being supported, members of Scholes Methodist Chapel believe many people will wish to attend their monthly charity coffee morning on Saturday, September 1, from 10am at the Methodist Schoolroom. All proceeds will be donated to Scholes Community Care, the volunteers’ group led by Maurice Walker which provides a range of valued services to the village’s older residents.

Horticultural Show: despite the many challenges the great British weather has given the nation’s gardeners this year, strong competition in all growing classes is expected at Barwick-in-Elmet Horticultural Society’s 47th annual show on Saturday. In addition to flowers, fruit and vegetables the judges will also appraise entries demonstrating skills in arts and crafts, home cookery and photography. A children’s competition to create a Garden in a Seed Tray will also be completed. Doors to Barwick Village Hall open at 2pm and entries will be accepted during Saturday morning. Further information can be obtained from the show secretary, Geoff Thornton, tel. (0113) 281-2171.

Village Ladies:‘My Year in Italy’ will be described by guest speaker Maggie Poppa at Monday’s meeting of Barwick Village Ladies. This will be held at the village hall at 7.30pm, with admission costing £2.50. Ciao!

Parish Council: following the August break, Barwick and Scholes Parish Council will have a very full agenda for its next meeting, to be held on Monday, September 3, at Barwick Methodist Schoolroom. As usual the parish forum will begin at 7.15pm, giving villagers an opportunity to raise with councillors issues of local concern. The council meeting will follow at 7.30pm; members of the public are entitled to attend, though not to take part in the council’s discussions. Progress being made with producing a draft Neighbourhood Development Plan for the parish is certain to be a hot topic. There will also be an update on the Village Design Statement, which will form a key part of the Plan.

Heritage open days: members of Barwick-in-Elmet Historical Society will conduct tours of the village’s Iron Age earthworks, which are more than 2,000 years old, as part of the National Heritage Open Days programme. The free tours will take place on Friday and Saturday, September 7 and 8, between 11am and 4pm. In a change from previous years they will start from All Saints’ Church, which will also be open to visitors from 10am on the same days. The new tour will offer entry to parts of the earthworks not normally open to the public. Two tour options will be available: a full tour involving climbing stiles and steep steps, for which stout footwear is recommended, or a shorter, easier terrain tour for those who prefer it. “Many visitors are surprised on their first visit to find such a large fort hidden in the midst of a built-up village,” says Harold Smith, a member of the Historical Society. He added: “Most people only know the Mound in Hall Tower Field; it is the youngest and only a small part of the whole earthworks.”

Campaigner returns: Scholes resident George Hall, a forthright campaigner for the village and local planning expert, has rejoined the Scholes steering group drafting a Neighbourhood Development Plan for the parish. He recently resigned following disagreements between Scholes and Barwick residents who joined parish councillors on the group. Mr Hall was encouraged to reconsider his decision by the Parish Council and by more than 120 people who attended the recent public meeting called by the Save Our Scholes lobby group. At a later stage the Barwick and Scholes sections will be brought together and put forward for approval by Leeds City Council. Mr Hall told the Wetherby News the Scholes steering group aims to make as much progress as possible before the end of the year “so that we can influence any planning policy or site allocation decisions the Local Planning Authority are minded to make.” Local people needed to accept that some development is envisaged for the parish, he said, though its scale would be a matter of debate as would its location, “which must be socially acceptable and sustainable in access, drainage and environmental terms.” He added: “Providing we have a constructive input from everyone who has an interest in developing the plan, for which one of the prime objectives is to maintain or enhance the quality of life for all who live or work in the parish, we will succeed in achieving the benefits of localism.”

Critics ‘totally wrong’: the effectiveness of the Parish Council’s communication with local residents was a key topic discussed at the Save Our Scholes meeting. Responding to criticism that insufficient information had been given to villagers about huge housing developments planned for the parish, Coun Ben Hogan, who chairs the parish council, said public consultation meetings had been held in both Barwick and Scholes. One of these, held at St Philip’s Church, Scholes, was very well attended while a second meeting in Barwick was, he acknowledged, very poorly attended. He pointed out that the parish council produces a regular newsletter which is delivered to every household in the parish. This is complemented by updates to the parish website: www.barwickandscholespc.com Coun Geoff Yapp, who leads on planning issues, told the meeting it was “totally wrong” to suggest that insufficient information is provided to parishioners. He reminded villagers that all communication costs must be met from parish funds. “It’s your money we are spending,” he said, adding that a summary of parish council discussions and decisions is always displayed on parish notice boards. These can be found outside Barwick Post Office and Scholes Library. In addition, most parish council and public meetings are attended by your correspondent and a report published in the Wetherby News.

Scarcroft Ladies Luncheon Club: following the lunch laid on by Mary Fowler, the speaker, Charlotte Stone was introduced with a very local talk on ‘Sue Ryder - her Life Motivation and Work’. Sue Ryder was born at Scarcroft Grange, one of nine children. The Ryder family were very much involved with Scarcroft village life. She went to boarding school at the age of nine. When turned fifteen, she lied about her age and went to work in Poland which was a very dangerous place. Later marrying a Polish serviceman, Sue disbanded after the war. In 1945 she travelled to Germany and France, sleeping in stables, helping with medical situations wherever she could, and visiting prisoners in France and Germany. Sue helped the boys get back on their feet at St Christopher, in Germany. In 1953 she returned home, now aged 30. Her mother gave over the family house to be the first home in Suffolk. They had 40 disabled people and were called the Leonard Cheshire Foundations. In 1959 Sue married and had two children, a boy and a girl. She travelled many miles a year to lots of homes in the UK often taking her own lunch. Public speaking at events raised donations for the homes. In 1978 Sue became a Life Peer, Lady Ryder, sitting in the House of Lords. During her life time she meet the Pope, the Queen and most of the Royal Family and appeared on ‘This is Your Life’. She died in 2000 aged 75 and is buried in Bardsey churchyard. There are now many Sue Ryder shops supporting Wheatfields and other establishments. Scarcroft Grange was Sue Ryder’s home, now flats, alongside the A58. A Blue Plaque on the entrance post commemorates her life.

Scarcroft Village Hall: although the future of the village hall still remains much in doubt due to nobody, so far, coming forward to make up a Management Committee, pre-planned inside and out decoration work is currently being carried out but bookings requests for 2013 are now being turned down. Also a drainage pipe has been installed to get water away from the back end of the hall in heavy weather when water runs out of the adjoining banking. Whatever the future or fate of the Village Hall may be, fresh faces, sale, demolition or housing? at least it will look smart and debt free.

Scarcroft Show Society: worries about unavailability of members, meaning that the Annual Flower Show may have had to be cancelled seem to have been alleviated. Secretary, Susan Wilson has gone to great lengths to persuade extra help to make up the numbers required, Many thanks to all who have come along to help. The Show is on Saturday September 9 at the Village Hall. Please get your entries ready and or visit the show. Full details and schedules available from the Secretary Susan Wilson. 0113 28924789 or the New Inn. This is the 35th show continuous since 1977, always a spectacular event. A great shame if it has to fold, particualy when one considers the effort of those no longer with us.

Eric T Thornton: we sadly have to report the passing of Eric Thornton at Donnisthorpe Hall, aged 91, who for many years lived on Thorner Lane with his wife Joan, who, after a number of years illness died 3 years ago. Eric and Joan were very much involved with many aspects of village life, in particular the forming of the Scarcroft Show Society, following the Silver Jubilee Celebrations in 1977. In the RAF during the war, he worked in the fuel oil industry, supplying domestic and the farming community. Also a part time Estate Agent. Eric leaves two children, Gregory, Debbie and grandchildren.

Shadwell Flower and Vegetable Show: the 65th Annual Flower and Vegetable Show took place on Saturday, August 18 on the Shadwell Primary School Playing fields. The weather was glorious this year with wall to wall sunshine.

However this did not encourage the visitors, numbers at the gate were greatly reduced perhaps it is a reflection on the many events which have already taken place this year. Shadwell has had the Mayfest and the Diamond Jubilee which were both well attended and than the Olympic Games kept people glued to their televisions so maybe everyone has now gone on holiday. Entries were also down by about 200 on last year’s but this is probably the bad weather which has meant that gardeners have had a hard time to get produce to show standards. The gardener and radio presenter Joe Maiden had some entries in this year and he managed to take a few prices. Produce and handicraft classes in the YCA tent were very good.

The children’s handwriting class was once again well supported by the children of Johannesburg, South Africa. They had sent over 80 entries and they had beautiful handwriting which puts a lot of our children to shame. The YCA also had a presentation and exhibition on the work of the YCA and it was encouraging how many ladies showed an interest.

The West Riding Chairman came to man the display and was able to answer questions and encourage visitors to attend a meeting of their local YCA. The Show was opened by Martin Walker and he presented the prizes at the end of the show.

The Chris White Jazz trio entertained the visitors during the afternoon and the Children’s entertainer kept the children amused.

On the Sunday morning after the show there was a Church service held in the marquee, this was a joint service with the Methodist church and St Paul’s Church, there were over 100 people at the service. Sadly the Salvation Army band had been unable to attend at the last minute, however, the Methodist church organist stepped in and played the music for the hymns. After the service coffee was served in the Village Hall courtesy of the ladies of St. Paul’s and people were able to get together for a chat.

Village Hall: things have been a bit quiet throughout the summer but now the children are getting ready to go back to school the classes etc are starting up again. The Craft afternoon will be starting back on Monday, September 3 at 2pm in the village hall. The ladies have been busy knitting (and nattering) the squares for the Gambia blanket. Some of the squares were entered into the Flower Show and two of our ladies got first and second prizes so it is a very special blanket this year. It is intended to sew all the donated squares into a blanket at the craft afternoon so the ladies will be busy.

This will be the third blanket the Shadwell knitters have made for the Gambia and last year there were enough squares to make a small blanket for a child as well. The blankets are taken to the Gambia by Liz and David Hutton when they visit the School which they help to support. Village Hall Quiz: the new season of quizzes starts on Friday, September 28 7.30pm in the village hall. Entrance is £4 and teams of six are welcome. The entrance fee includes a light supper. Come and have a fun evening in the village hall if you haven’t got a team of six come anyway and join one of the other groups.
