Bardon Mill village notes

THE first murder/mystery play in the village hall was a resounding success. On the Move theatre group skilfully played to a packed hall of budding detectives and created enough red herrings to fill several barrels.

Greenhead village notes

THE youth club disappeared into the woods on Wednesday under the charge of Pinpoint Adventures of Slaggyford. They built a shelter, lit fires correctly, toasted (and ate) bread and marshmallows, filtered water from the Tipalt, made a map from natural materials like twigs and rocks, and made an SOS signal!

THERE will be lots of fun this holiday weekend up at Alston, not only for lovers of steam engines and grandparents and their little ones, but for anyone wanting to re-live, even briefly, those days when train journeys involved smoke and a whistle and men shovelling coal.
