Greenhead village notes

IF you aren’t celebrating International Women’s Day tomorrow by enjoying the results of the efforts of notable women brewers and chefs at the Samson Inn in Gilsland, you may well be enjoying the unpronounceable but great band, Amadou Diangne, at the village hall in Hallbankgate.

This is a venue always closely associated with African music and culture, and the event starts at 7.30pm and is suitable for children and adults.

ON Sunday we are expecting a great array of stalls at the farmers’ market – in addition to the usual wonderful organic meat and cheese, fresh bread, free range chickens and eggs, jam and chutney, etc, we welcome back Hazel and Flo after illness with their pies and cakes, and also Holly with special gift baskets of her natural soap and remedies ideal for Easter and Mothering Sunday presents.

There is already considerable interest in the new stall from north of the Border, the Spencerfield Spirit Company, at which we are looking forward to tasting their new range of fruit-infused gins. And Cumbria Wildlife will be there to inspire our walks as the spring advances.

ON Monday, March 10, the Women’s Institute will welcome the district nurse to its meeting at 7pm in the village hall.

ON the morning of Monday, March 10, the littlest people will be in the hall with a parent, grandparent or carer, having fun.

THE Tuesday Painters’ classes continue on Tuesday morning and the youth club on Wednesday evening. There’ll be keep fit in the hall on Monday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes, and the dance club on Sunday evenings.

HERE are the winners in this month’s Golf Club 100Plus Club draw: 1, Anne Donnelly; 2, Michael Simpson; 3, John Watters, Lewis Smith and David Elcoate; 4, Stephen Dickinson, Gavin Mitchell and Denise Crowe. Anyone regretting not taking part should get in touch with Cliff straight away!

CROCUS, pussy willow and periwinkles already and what wonderful birdsong as the nesting season begins!

ST Cuthbert’s Church will be holding a coffee morning in the Methodist hall in Haltwhistle tomorrow, so pop in to support the team and take a welcome break from the shopping.
