Both the Under 9’s and Under 10’s played on Sunday morning against Cayton and Phoenix FC in the Scarborough Minors League. Filming involved going between the two pitches and I somehow manged to miss most of the goals and had a battery crisis at one point but hopefully I managed to catch everyone on film. […]

REFER to Mr & Mrs Magson’s letter in the Gazette & Herald asking Kirkbymoorside Town Council to justify spending £175,000 on repairs and refurbishment of the former library in Church Street. The old library building is an iconic building, one of the oldest public buildings at the centre of the conservation area. Sadly, very little […]

Many readers will no doubt be aware that Kirkbymoorside has recently witnessed an upsurge of interest in local government – along with anger at perceptions of its disconnectedness from its electorate. Much was said at the 1st September Town Meeting which paves the way for both council and electors to realise the Town Council’s stated […]
At the last meeting of the Kirkby Scout Group trustees it was decided to begin what undoubtedly will be a long journey to acquiring a new Scout Hut. The current hut in Manor Vale has served the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts well over many years but it is in a very dilapadated state and, until […]
A first half shot from the Moorsiders ended up high in an ash tree behind the visitors goal and … well … stayed there. I’m reliably informed by Tim Elliott that match balls cost £60 so doubtless some brave soul will be dispatched to retrieve it. You’ll be relieved to know the team’s shooting improved […]
What a pleasure it was visiting Colleen Nicoll this morning. Not only is she a highly skilled and creative craftswoman but her passion for embroidery was so catching even I felt moved to give it a go – especially when Colleen invited me to her York Dolly Birds Group!

Get out with your punnets this weekend to pick the blackberries that are aplenty in the fields above the children’s play area and in the vicinity of the pond. This lot was picked in very little time.

ANGRY residents have demanded a halt to a controversial scheme to spend up to £175,000 to transform a former library into council offices. Their anger against Kirkbymoorside Town Council spilled over at a three-hour town meeting in a packed Memorial Hall. Many were angry with suggestions from the top table that there could be legal […]
A new venture, which I came across on Twitter, has been launched which is fast creating a collection of short films made in and around Yorkshire. Yorkshire Telly is an online stage for artists to share their work, network and potentially form collaborations. Proposals can come from anywhere in the world – the only catch is that all filming takes place in Yorkshire – but […]
