Village Fair 2017 – Prize Raffle

We are very grateful to the following prize donors who have made the raffle for our Village Fair on August Bank Holiday so amazing! Please support them as they have supported us.

Brilliant Bikes

imageThanks to everyone who helped or came to support our walking quiz, Le Tour de Ebberston today. The weather was kind too. Brilliant decorated bikes, yummy scones and bacon butties out of the kitchen and a great range of stalls, all raising money for the village hall and other village causes.

Even an order of 13 bacon butties didn’t throw us!

 

 

Looking back on the York floods

We had a super and very interesting talk in Ebberston village hall by members of Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue team on 19th January  about their response to  the York floods, how and where the worst of the floods happened and how the team ended up coordinating all the MR teams that came in to the city (from as far away as Exmoor!). The hall was full and we were very happy to have made a donation to the team for all their efforts.

Over the last few years, the team has been deployed to an increasing number of water-based rescues and searches, especially in response to flooding (as at York last year but also Whitby and Scarborough just the previous week when there was a tidal surge).

Just earlier the same say, the team were also handed over a new boat donated by Pickering and District Rotary Club after some fabulous fundraising. The new boat will help the team deploy to deeper water and carry more  passengers in similar circumstances.

We’re sure they’d be willing to come to your village hall and talk too for a donation!

A Short History of Bothams Bakery

Jo Botham (great grandson of Elizabeth Botham) came to Ebberston village hall this week to give a talk about the history of this very local institution. We had a great turnout as well and raised over £150 for village hall funds.

We were amazed at the number of children this astonishing (and formidable by all accounts) lady had all while setting up and expanding her Whitby business! We also found out that Bothams were the first business in the UK to sell food online!

Thanks to everyone who came along.
