Great and Little Broughton Parish Council There are, currently, two controversial planning matters in the Parish. The Ings Lane Gypsy Site planning application finally went before Councillors at Hambleton District Council in February. In the last few years the District Council Officers have been working to try to get round the planning objections to this site to enable planning permission to be granted. Although the Officers recommended that planning permission be granted, the Committee resoundingly decided to refuse it. An appeal has been made against that refusal and against two enforcement notices which the District Council have now served. An Inspector from the Central Government’s Planning Inspectorate will hold a Public Inquiry on Tuesday, 25th September to decide the appeals. This could last two days. At the time of writing this, the District Council have decreed that the Public Inquiry will be held in Northallerton in their Offices. We have objected to this and requested that it be held in the Village Hall. Our local MP, William Hague, has written to the District Council to support our request. The Parish Council have sent a detailed case to the Planning Inspectorate explaining why planning permission should not be granted. You can see this on the Parish Council’s new website at The other planning application, submitted over a year ago, is for land north of Broughton Grange Farm on the High Street. The Parish Council objected to the original plans for 25 houses. It is understood that the proposal will now be revised to provide for a smaller number of houses. When the revised plans are submitted to the District Council, the Parish Council has agreed that there will be a public meeting to discuss them.

WI to meet on August 9th at 7.15 in Kirkby Church Hall when Sid Slawther will talk on `Behind the scenes at Wimbledon`. Local History Our summer programme now consists of only two events- the first of these is a visit to Whorlton on Monday July 9th. you should aim to arrive in the vicinity of the Old Church by 2 pm. Carol Cook and James Lawton will be our guides. We suggest you bring a picnic to be enjoyed amidst the ancient stones of Whorlton Castle after the visit- good weather has been ordered. On Wednesday July 18th we are holding our annual maintenance day on the Pannierman Way above Kirkby Hill Road. Please meet at the top of the road at 10 am and bring a spade or suitable tools. Now that the trod has been listed we really ought to spend at least a little time taking care of this historic pathway on our doorstep. Unfortunately the uptake of members for a visit to Aldborough and the York Cold War Bunker is not sufficient to make the trip viable this year. What we shall do is put the same itinerary into next year's calendar and ensure that it is in your diaries from the start of 2013 so that everyone has plenty of notice. Stokesley and District Choral Society start their new season's rehearsals on Monday 3rd September 2012, at 7-30pm in The Roman Catholic Church Hall, Stokesley. New singers are always welcome, particularly tenor and bass voices. Come along and try a rehearsal without any obligation.

Christian Aid Congratulations and grateful thanks to the People of Kirkby and Great Broughton for supporting Christian Aid week so generously. The total amount raised came to £1,009.71 which is a fantastic total and will go a long way to alleviating poverty for some poor families in Sierra Leone. Tickets for the Tea on the Lawn Event which is on Sunday July 15th from 2.00 to 4.00 at Westfields, Kirkby are going well. They are £5.00 (not £6.00 as reported last month - apologies) and must be a bargain at that! A lovely home-made tea in beautiful surroundings - what more could you want on a summer Sunday afternoon? You can get tickets from any Committee member or from Anne 712110 or Jean 712458.

Kirkby and Great Broughton School The children thoroughly enjoyed a very exciting week this term taking part in various Diamond Jubilee activities including dressing up as royals and sharing a celebration picnic lunch. We welcomed parents to an assembly where the children shared some of their work and activities. It certainly put everyone in the mood for the village celebrations on Tuesday 2nd June. The parades of a decorated float from each village were led by children from our school. We drew out the lucky winners who were Ewan Sanderson, William Ablett, Katie Cooper and Tassy Race. It was a wonderful day! All the children received a commemorative Bible, which were kindly donated by members of St Augustine’s Church. I am sure they will treasure them now and in future years. We recently organised a competition for the children to design an ‘eye for the fish’ at the front of school. We received many entries and were really impressed by the thought the children put into their designs. Since we have now come up with the idea of making a couple of stepping stones to get from the ‘eye’ to the front door of the school, we needed more than one design and we can use two for circular stepping stones. Overall the design by Emily Miller (Year 2) was the winner. Her design shows a simplified map of the world in shiny glass. We really liked the idea of the whole world being reflected in the eye. For the steeping stones we recognised the designs by Thomas Maynard (Year 2) and Jeshua Saha (Reception). We look forward to seeing their designs in place which will complete the landscaping work at the front of school. On 23rd June the PTA are organising an action packed Olympic activity day which will mark the start of Sports Week in school. I am sure it will be a fantastic day with lots of fun for everyone. Many, many thanks to everyone who are working so hard to make the day such a success and for raising valuable funds for school. The children in Key Stage Two are working towards an Olympic themed performance involving songs and sketches which they will perform for their parents. The Y6 children are also preparing for their leavers’ service in St Augustine’s Church where they give thanks and reflect on their time at Kirkby and Great Broughton. It will certainly be an emotional occasion when we say a fond farewell to our 12 Y6 children. Mrs Sadler will also be leaving us at the end of this term. She has decided to concentrate on family life and enjoy every moment of her young family as they grow up. On behalf of staff, parents and children, I would like to thank Mrs Sadler for her work over the past 5 years at our school and for her energy and enthusiasm. She will be missed by us all.
