(Note this was earlier advertised as on 29 June – but it has been
changed to 19 June)

After last year’s wash-out we will once again visit this interesting
area at the head of Kingsdale and hope for better weather. The area
consists of upland acidic habitats including heath and mire as well as
some disused limestone quarries so an interesting mix of plants should
be encountered. The records will eventually contribute to a flora for
vice-county 65 similar to Phyl Abbott’s Flora of Mid-west Yorkshire
which CCG contributed to.  Park near High Moss between Kingsdale and
Deepdale where the prominent track joins from the NW at SD723823. The
start is at 470m (1540 feet) so bring warm clothing, waterproofs,

4: 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 –
