Thought you might enjoy seeing this picture of a grain bin that was converted into a farm cottage. Got me thinking about possible adaptations for new scout hut! Suggestions welcome….!

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 […]

Roald Dahl Day takes place every year, today on 13th September, the birthday of the World’s No. 1 Storyteller. Actually, such is the success of the celebration, this year for the first time it lasts a whole month – read all about it in today’s Guardian. So it’s appropriate that today on the town blog we hand over to Sue Wright […]
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! Apologies for the slightly shaky camera […]

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. Superstition in the UK holds that blackberries should not be picked after Michaelmas (29 September) as the devil […]

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 […]
Flu can be a very unpleasant illness, lasting a week to ten days. Symptoms include a fever, shivering, severe muscle pains and a headache. It may also cause respiratory symptoms such as a nasty cough, sore throat and a stuffy nose. Flu is passed from person to person by droplets – so coughing, sneezing, or […]
Naming one’s House is an old British custom which began with the gentry naming their manors, halls, and castles. The custom gradually spread to the masses and everyday folk began naming their homes as well. Traditionally the house name is based on who the house was ‘tied’ to or located at. For instance, the Lord […]
Kirkbymoorside’s Menzone which is, as the name suggests, a men-only group, meets monthly. It was initiated and grew from the Church but is now attended by non-Church men. There are different speakers each month on a diverse number of topics. This month ‘Waste Energy and the Environment’ is the subject under discussion with John Brown […]

Volunteers in Kirkbymoorside are reducing the town’s plastic footprint by making cloth shopping bags. This post has been kindly written by Chris Dowie, founder of Kirbybaggers. In October 2008 I was looking for a pattern for a cloth shopping bag because I wanted to make some as Christmas presents, when I found the morsbags website. For some time […]

And for your information this is from Wikipedia: A limousine (or limo) is a luxury vehicle sedan or saloon car, especially one with a lengthened wheelbase or driven by a chauffeur. The chassis of a limousine may have been extended by the manufacturer or by an independent coachbuilder. These are referred to as “stretch” limousines […]
I’ve been asked quite alot which camera I use for filming on the blog and so here’s the answer – the Flip. I bought it just over a year ago to take on holiday but in actual fact we didn’t end up using it much. Unlike many other video cameras it doesn’t have an external […]

Four children and I went to visit Moorside Alpacas at the southern end of Kirkbymoorside and had a great morning with owner Derrick Richardson and his son Jake. They very kindly showed us around their 17 acre smallholding and expanding herd of alpacas. Watch the video to learn more about how the project started, what’s […]
I’ve been mulling this over for some time but a helpful email this morning has prompted me to change the name of the blog from the Moorsider. I was a bit cheeky to borrow this from the Town Council publication and it is right I return it to them to avoid confusion. So for the […]
