Proms in the Park

Schoolchildren will take centre stage at a Proms in the Park event at a local care home.

Saxton CE choir and Tadcaster Grammar Concert Band will star at Highfield Care Home’s Scarthingwell Park grounds on June 16.

There will also be fun activities and three pipers will play in the interval at the home at Barkston Ash.

Visitors are urged to make the most of the grounds and the occasion and take a picnic.

Money raised from the event will go to Selby District Churches.

The event runs from 5-8pm. Tickets are £5 for adults and £3 for children under 16 years.

And on Saturday July 14 the care home will stage a gala day in aid of the residents’ fund and stroke appeal for York District Hospital.

Attractions include a display by a sealed knot group.
