*********************************************

1. Sun 19 May:- 7pm: The Old Congregational Chapel at Tosside will be
celebrating its 200th Anniversary this Sunday: Mount Sion
Congregational Chapel, Tosside.  It has a special heating system.
This special historic chapel has only 3 services a year. – so this
Sunday is a brilliant time to visit it!.  It has an upstairs gallery.
The service will be led by WR Mitchell of Giggleswick (former
editor of the Dalesman).
Drive from Settle to the juntion at Tosside then continue to the
next building on the right (about 300 yards). There is a caravan parked outside.
I can offer a lift from Settle.

….
Unfortunately (for me) this clashes with the Lambing Service at
Wenningside  Farm, (between Clapham Station and Keasden) which takes
place in a big barn, and is a very good occasion and they have
delcious cakes afterwards..

***************************************************************************

3. Tot Lord’s Settle Town Trail – guided walks by Richard Whinray

These will take place on the following Thursdays – 27th June, 11th
July, 25th July, 8th august, 22nd august, and 29th August.
Meet outside Settle TIC – duration of trail 6.15pm – 8.00pm
Cost £4 each – all proceeds donated to Oxfam.
For those wishing to attend, call Richard Whinray on 015242 42414

***************************************************************************

4. This morning I attended Settle Big Breakfast where we had a talk
about STREETLINK- www.streetlink.org.uk :-

Concerned about someone sleeping rough?
Call 0300 500 0914 – “Please get in touch so we can connect rough
sleepers to local services.”

The Speaker Bob Owen told how more, and
different types of people, are becoming homeless.
1. Professional type people who lose their job, get into debt and
then end up “sofa hopping”
2. People who split up from their husband/wife and have nowhere to go and
end up sofa hopping, or sleeping in a shed.
3. 16 year olds who get thrown out of their home once their parents
can no longer claim child benefit. (People of 16 are considered old
enough to work)
4. Young people who have been in jail and come out of jail and are given £30
but have nowhere to live, and no friends.

Bob Owen (who lives in Wensleydale) said that once he had an
acquaintance friend who became homeless and Bob and his friends helped
him by letting him stay on their sofa for a week each. They thought
they were doing the best for him.

However they did not ring 0300 500 0914

It would have been much better if they had rung this number because
there is a raft of services available. If people are offered help
quickly when they become homeless, it is much easier to sort things
out. (They don’t have to accept help – it is just useful if they know
what is available)

——–
He was also keen to hear from people at the talk and elsewhere who
could be local “Champions” in for Street link – willing to receive
information about Street Link, and to publicise it, maybe by putting
up posters, maybe by giving 5 minute talks. Contact him at
robert.owen@nyforum.org.uk

OPAL, in partnership with Forest Research and the Food and
Environment Research Agency, are launching a national survey this
May to investigate tree health.
This training session will provide an
introduction to the Tree Health Survey,
and some of the main pests and diseases
threatening trees in Britain. The session
will enable participants to monitor tree
health to help form an early warning
system for our nation’s trees and to train
others how to do so if they wish.
What the training will cover:
• Introduction to UK forests and tree health
• Pests and diseases – information and identification of key pests and
diseases affecting oak, ash and horse chestnut
• The OPAL Survey: its purpose and what we are trying to find out
• How to conduct the OPAL survey, including practical training
To book a place please contact Rachel Pateman
rachel.pateman@york.ac.uk 01904 324403
Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to limited
availability we will initially offer places to one representative from each
group who can then pass on their training to others.

24: Grassington Festival Fringe Wed 26th June 8pm
Come and see us:
“A DOUBLE DOSE OF LIPPY LOGIC”
www.grassington-festival.org.uk/events/a-double-dose-of-lippy-logic/

Home Grown Talent produces unique show
You can find up to date information at   http://lippylogic.blogspot.co.uk.
Two women from the Settle area decided to take matters into their own
hands when they couldn’t find any good comedy and drama for ladies of
a certain age to perform. Christine Hooley and Veronica Caperon have
written their own show “A Double Dose of Lippy Logic” which they will
present at the Grassington Festival Fringe in June.

When not treading the boards, Christine runs the local village shop
and Veronica is a professional photographer and copywriter. They draw
inspiration from everyday life: “There’s a comedy sketch about our
exploits as novice vegetable growers during last year’s wettest ever
summer. The audience can expect to come face to face with slugs and
other gastropods with that one!” says Christine. The trials and
tribulations of caring for ageing parents and young children are also
tackled in a couple of scenes.
The show is on Wednesday 26th June at 8pm at The Methodist Church in
Grassington as part of the Fringe programme. Tickets (£6) are
available from the Festival Box office tel: 01756 752691
(www.grassington-festival.org.uk), or Crossleigh Stores in Austwick
015242 51415. Up to date information can be found at the pair’s blog –

I enjoyed attending the YNU freshwater and snails day at the Canal at
Bradley and was shown about 15 species of water snail.

Then on Thursday night I joined the CCG group at the wood near Burton
in Lonsdale, and we saw some “Early Dog violet” – Viola
reichenbachiana which is not common around here. Several people came
on the walk who had read about it through the “Flowers fo the Dales”
booklet. http://www.ydmt.org/what-we-do-details-flowers-of-the-dales-festival-2013–14806
