No need to pay to see a lovely snow drop display this year. Just walk up the road towards Moor Brow – the walk will do you good – look over the fence on the left hand side and you will see a beautiful white carpet of snow drops stretching right across the ghyll, a lovely reminder that spring is really here.

The annual charity dance held in January raised £1,015 divided equally between Cancer Care and the Macmillan Nurses charities.

I had a nice little note from Chris Travers who has been clearing up his late sister Bridget’s house. He recalls how the family moved to Arkholme when they bought Cawood View in the nineteen fifties. He was just a schoolboy then, and he loved going for walks with my father when they exercised the dogs at Storrs Hall.

My bird feeders have been very busy this year. They just love the fat balls I have been putting out for them and they are eating two every day at the moment, such a variety of birds and all eating as if there was no tomorrow, so nice to watch them coming and going the whole time.

The next dance in the Village Hall is on Saturday 7 March when Bill Johnston will be providing the music – it will be another good night.
