Bill   (W.R.)   Mitchell’s   memorial  service  will  be on Tuesday 10
November  at  2  pm at St John’s Methodist Church Settle.  (I attended
his funeral service  at  Skipton  on  Monday  19 Oct which was held on
a beautiful sunny autumn day.)

Harold (Poppy)  Middleton died recently. His funeral is this Friday at
St  John’s  Methodist   Church  at  11am.  Poppy  used  to  go to Zion
church  until  recently  when  it  closed  and he started coming to St
John’s and we were just (at St John’s) enjoying getting to know him.

Learn your lichens Number 1.
Go to this link to see a photo of the lichen Arthonia radiata.
You  need  a  hand  lens  to  see the lichen clearly. It is growing in
Giggleswick    churchyard  on  the  Hawthorn  tree  near gate just WNW
of  the  church,(  in  the  part  where  peoples ashes are buried, and
where people go to remember their
loved ones.)
The thallus (body) of the lichen is a smooth, greyish white crust
with  embedded,  black,  variable  but  usually  irregularly  stellate
apothecia (fruiting bodies) (typically 1-2mm in diameter);
