Judith’s Update

News and Events around the Area

 

Do you belong to a community group (in or near the YDNP) that would
like someone to come and run an interesting activity for one of your
ordinary meetings?

Chrysalis Arts (Gargrave) have just told me a about their “design a
Slow Dales Tea Towel” project – they can run workshops at your usual
meeting to “Make a design” (that fits on a Tea towel) – based about
your club’s activities or place where it meets – but it has to be
about sustainability/local/

environmental aka “slow” ideas as well –
See item 15 below on 27 April.
