10. 8-9 March Fun and Laughter at the Austwick Community Players Annual Show
This year’s Austwick Community Players production hits the boards at
the beginning of March  with a brand new spotlight on a chaotic and
hilarious ancient theme!  The plot is still tightly under wraps, but
it will transport the audience back through the mists of time to when
bulls were oxen,  men wore skirts and women wore the trousers.  The
group will be using new lighting for which they successfully  applied
for a grant from Awards for All Big Lottery Fund. The public shows,
which pay for the annual supper and entertainment for the Over 65s in
Austwick  and Lawkland Parishes, are on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th
March at 7.30pm at Austwick Parish Hall.  Tickets are £5 with £2 for
children and are available soon from Crossleigh Stores in Austwick
(015242 51415).

12. Sat 9 Mar ‘Young Rangers’ – bird box making with the National Trust at
Malham Tarn.

Detail:
The National Park Authority is launching ‘Young Rangers’ for 10 – 16
year-olds who enjoy being outdoors and are keen to find out more about
the national park.  Based in the Settle area, this will, initially, be
a continuation of the former Middle School John Muir Award group, but
with a wider range of activities.

Young Rangers will run  on the second Saturday of each month, plus
other occasional days for some activities,  and will offer support in
achieving the Discovery and Explorer levels of the John Muir Award.

Days out will include training from experts in outdoor survival
skills,  tree planting, mending footpaths,  wild life surveys (might
see some wildlife too!), and lots more.

Young Rangers will be run by experienced, qualified
staff and volunteers from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority
with help from the National Trust,  Natural England and others.

Young Ranger Programme Winter 2013
