The recent Harvest Supper held on Saturday 7th October in the Village Hall has been deemed as another successful event for the village with an almost capacity crowd in attendance. The event itself raised a sum in the region of £250 which is destined for the local church building fund in support of the building of a new kitchen and toilet. Thanks must go to Shirley Stokes and her team of helpers and all who supported the event. Well done!
On Tuesday 3rd of October the club met as scheduled in Barnby Moor village hall at 7:15pm with 27 members keen to listen to the invited speaker for the evening. Chairperson Jenny Bailey welcomed members and gave out any official notices before introducing the guest speaker, Hannah Sylvester, a Medical Herbalist BSc (Hons) MNIMH who would address the group about Western Herb Medicine.
Based in Lincolnshire, Hannah is known locally as The District Herbalist, and besides giving talks to various clubs and societies, is also involved in one-to-one Herbal Consultations, Herbal Walks and Nature Education. The speaker explained and showed slides of various herbs used to assist many conditions around today, many of these can be found in a lot of gardens. Rosemary, Thyme, Mint being the most common. Even the common nettles have their use! The important point is knowing which to use and what strength to use, as many can cause problems when used incorrectly. Samples of various herbs and potions were distributed amongst those present, many identified by smell, some could even be tasted! A very informative talk and seemingly enjoyed by the gathering.
The Speed Watch team had a month off in August, the gap being covered by the Police rural community Speed Watch team, who covered the area and surprised many speeding motorists! The local team have resumed their duties and ask drivers to assist them by reducing speed in the village!
The group who are all volunteers were back to normal in September, supported by the police on occasions, and again found quite a few motorists who were in breach of the local speed limits displayed throughout the village. Out in all weather, at various times and days in support of villagers and the community at large they deserve all the help, and thanks they can get for their ongoing efforts, which could prevent accidents and may even save lives, please make their task a little easier by slowing down when entering or passing through the village, it would be appreciated.
