Many thanks to all who attended and supported this event. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this exceptional flower demonstration and the lunch that followed. Thanks also to the willing helpers who were very generous with their time and energy. This event raised £1,396 for Church funds which will help to bridge the gap left by the absence of our usual Church Fair. Well done everyone. Jean Taylor & Gill Sockett.

Now that we have had the Fair & Show our thoughts turn inevitably to Christmas. For all those who wish to participate in our very popular Christmas Greetings event look out for our envelopes in the November issue. In return for a small donation your name(s) will appear in the December issue giving Christmas Wishes to friends and neighbours in Kirkby & Gt. Broughton in lieu of sending a card. This saves time and ‘legwork’ at a busy time of year. This way three parties are a ‘winner’ - you will be helping the environment, yourselves, and most importantly, helping to alleviate world poverty. Many thanks, Jean Taylor.

PS882 Simon Wilson is now based in Stokesley supported by PC Glynn Jones & PC Catherine Skelton who has replaced PC Michele McFarlane. There have been a lot of shed burglaries & caravan thefts in this area. Do consider buying a shed alarm & for caravan owners to remove one wheel & leave a clamp on the other one. Also in winter particularly leave a light on in the evening or use a timer. Never leave vehicle keys near the front or rear doors and ensure your security light is working.

Kirkby & Gt. Broughton School Our new Reception class of 17 children have settled in extremely well and are enjoying their time in school. We have also welcomed 6 new children into our school in years 1 to 6 so we start the new school year with 103 pupils in total. Our class assemblies have started this term. They are a lovely opportunity for parents to join with us and find out what the children have been learning about. Class 2 shared their topic work on ‘People who help us’ with their proud parents. Harvest Festival will soon be upon us and this year our school celebration takes place in St Augustine’s Church on 11th October at 11.00 am. We hope that families and friends will be able to join us. The church will be decorated by our youngest children as we head into autumn. We will be sharing our harvest gifts with local residents. We are also looking forward to welcoming parents or our Y3 children to school on 4th October for a special service in the school hall. Rev’d Anne will be leading the service and presenting all the children with a Bible. Well done to all our children for entering the children’s competitions at Stokesley Show this year and what a delight it was to see all their fantastic work on display. Congratulations to the children who won prizes: Emma - Rec, Alice - Y4, Katherine - Y5, Abbie and Megan – Y6. We have been working with our landscape architect on an exciting new project to improve the grounds at the front of school. This will provide a welcoming area for parents to meet together as they collect their children from school. It will also be an area for outdoor learning for the children. We hope to start work in the near future. The beginning of the year also saw the election of our School Council. They are already contributing to the direction and ethos of the school with our first meeting discussing school rules and collective worship. Our elected reps are: Seb & Lydia in Y1, Thomas & Emily in Y2, Ellis & Sasha in Y3, William & Alice in Y4, Izzy & Joe in Y5 & Oliver & Abigail in Y6. We have also appointed our new Y6 House Captains & they are Isobel, Megan, Emily, Will, Rachael & Amelia. I am sure they will be excellent role models for the younger children and good ambassadors for the school.
