Following the success of Kirkby Day 2016 the town council extend their thanks to everyone involved:
Tried to capture the day, from the tractor run, the childrens’s races, the Tour de Yorkshire and the 10K so here they are in one giant slideshow. Couldn’t be everywhere and whilst down on the A170 the 5K race was finishing so didn’t manage to capture that. Also – doh – I forgot to change […]

Kirkbymoorside WI will be running a cafe in The Moorside Room from 10 – 4 on May 1st as part of the very busy day involving the Tractor Run, 10K and other races and the Tour de Yorkshire celebrations. Everyone welcome.

Just to clarify, the Kirkby Day, celebrating this happy co-incidence, is not a Town Council event. It is a ‘Town’ event, but the Town Council is […]

Two giant child-like puppets, each about 2m tall, will be collecting funds for local cycle tracks when the “Tour de Yorkshire” zooms along the A170 on 1st May, and they will be in town for the 10K races too. Their skeletons and cycle helmets of willow are nearly complete. Are you creative? Can you spare […]
