Bardon Mill village notes
Published at 14:30, Thursday, 10 July 2014
MY apologies for the lack of a Bardon Mill column last week. We were cruising round the Baltic states and learning that all the information we were taught in school about the importance of the Hanseatic League to our local economy in past times really did mean something.
Hence, in the Dome church of St Olaus in Tallinn, Estonia, there is an impressive memorial to a 14th century merchant and his wife who were originally from the North of England.
HOME again to healthy schools fortnight where, at Henshaw school, Mrs Forsyth has been busy arranging lots of activities for Henshaw and its associated schools, who will enjoy gymnastics, rugby, athletics, cycling and scooters as well as visits from the fire brigade, police, paramedics and Waitrose staff.
The children are asked to come to school in their PE kit during the fortnight and the healthy schools initiative will finish with sports day today at Herdley Bank school starting at 1pm.
WELL done to all the children for raising £75.20 for Macmillan nurses in their dress up and dance event recently.
ON Monday, July 7, there is a food and film night at the General Havelock in Haydon Bridge at 7pm.
The film is Oh! What a Lovely War and focuses on the members of one family who go off to join the First World War conflict.
Your place must be booked in advance – telephone Joanna on (01434) 684376.
ON Wednesday, July 9, the Women’s Institute will meet in the village hall at 7pm, where our own Dorothy Hartley – a gifted and inventive cook – will be giving members more ideas for delicious puds.
Any woman over 16 is very welcome to come along and this will quite literally be a ‘taster’ session.
