Local News and Events

From Judith :

Did you see Attenburgh 60 years in the wild – Our Fragile Planet – on TV?
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p00zsrz4/Attenborough_60_Years_in_the_Wild_Our_Fragile_Planet/
Same link but shorter: http://bbc.in/TEHkA9 ?

I saw some of the earlier programmes when I was young (not the earliest).
How much has been lost in our lifetimes!  Tragic.
But he also pointed out some things that have been saved –
There would be no blue whales left had not Greenpeace and others
campaigned.

So it is up to us to save what is left.

I invite you to come and support the Coffee Morning at St John’s
Methodist Church this Tuesday 4 Dec, 10am to midday in Aid of the Rainforest Fund. – raising money for
World Land Trust www.worldlandtrust.org
and A Rocha Ghana www.arocha.org/gh-en/work/overview.html

If we can raise £100 that will buy 1 acre of Rainforest in South
America through World Land Trust.. (A local Trust run by the local
people then manages the land as farest, rather than cutting it down)

How much is 1 acre?
1 acre = Settle Market place incl. Town Hall and Shambles
1 acre = Whitefriars car park plus garage

£100 = The cost of two pairs of trainers – (How one acre is that cheap
I  don’t know – though Orang utan rainforest in Borneo costs much more
than this)

If we could raise £200 it would be great.

I will be giving the money raised to these two charities during the Big
Give”. There is matched funding from several large organisations- So
for each £100 we can give they will match it with another £100

(If you want to give money to them direct from 6-8 Dec then go to

http://new.thebiggive.org.uk/projects/view/16902 A Rocha “Planting
Seeds” conservation education project, which includes projects in
Ghana

I will have my beautiful photo Greetings Cards for sale.
You can also buy them at Wholesome Bee (Settle),  at Taitlands,
(Stainforth), and at Townhead Court (Settle)

A big thank you to Settle Spinners who raise money each year for the
Rainforest Fund.

1. Mon 3 Dec – Craven Speakers Club at Skipton  7.45pm
This is the last “ordinary” Speakers club of 2012 (The next one is a
Christmas social type event).
Do come and give it a try. Then you can decide whether to make a New
Year Resolution to become  more confident, articulate and effective when you have to make
announcements or give little talks. The meetings are fun. We learn
lots of tips.  Everyone improves when they come – whether you are a
tongue tied, shy beginner or already an effective presenter.
