Church Celebration: Grewelthorpe St James’ and The Methodist Church invite everyone to celebrate the completion of the church renovations. This will be on Saturday, June 22 at 6pm. The evening will commence with a short service of thanksgiving, attended by Bishop James Bell and The Rev Stephen Burgess, chair of the Methodist District. After the service, light refreshments will be served. It is hoped that everyone will want to inspect the new church interior and see what has been achieved.

WI Quiz: a draw was made at the recent WI meeting from all the correct entries of the 2013 quiz. The winner is Mrs E Falshaw of Masham. Thank you to everyone who supported Grewelthorpe WI by taking part. The answers are available on the Grewelthorpe website under WI.

Grewelthorpe WI Report: the June meeting was guest night with members from several institutes in the group attending. The speaker for the evening was Ryan Stocks from Owl Adventures. He had brought along eight owls and a falcon. The audience were delighted to see these delightful birds close up, get a chance to handle them and see them flying around the room. A lovely supper was served afterwards and everyone agreed it had been a very pleasant evening. Grewelthorpe members are reminded of the outing to the lavender farm on Wednesday, June 26. The coach leaves the Crown at 9.30am.
