George Lane Fox: Scarcroft was saddened to learn of the passing of George Lane Fox of Bramham Park. George was a member of a long standing family estate which owned, and still do, many of the farms and agricultural land in our area. He was patron of Bardsey Church, also hosted a number of evening services, attended by many Scarcroft congregation members at the Chapel of our Lady in Bramham Park. The Lane Fox family will be remembered for their donation of the land on which the Scarcroft Village hall was built in 1924, and a recent donation of millstones from Scarcroft Mill. Our thoughts are with the family at this time.

Women’s Institute Golden Plover Group: a Pate and Poetry evening was held at the Scarcroft Village Hall to coincide with National Poetry Day. Various different groups brought along, and ladies read their poems. An enjoyable evening had by all.

Scarcroft Women’s Institute: the October meeting was the AGM and supper evening. Unfortunately there was very heavy rain and only 11 members turned out. A super supper was put on by the committee. The committee was re-elected with Pauline Reeves the chairlady. Sandra Thompson gave a vote of thanks to Pauline for her work over the past year.
