Once again a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who supported this year's Barrel Push and Village Fete.

Having now paid all our expenses the Organising Committee are pleased to announce that £3,500 has been donated to four local charities. This money also includes profits  from the Quiz Night held earlier in the year.

This year's chief beneficiary was Herriot Hospice Homecare (£1,750), with smaller donations awarded to the Swaledale Mountain Rescue (£750), the Dales Centre, Bedale (£750) and the Harmby Under 5's Pre-School (£250). All these charities were suggested by local people, and do amazing work within our community.

If you would like to nominate a charity or other good cause to benefit from next years event please get in touch with a Committee Member or contact our Secretary via e mail on
