BARREL PUSH 2020

Dear Villagers

Your help would be appreciated! Are there any Charities or other Good Causes you would like the Barrel Push to support next year?

 

If you have any suggestions or would like to nominate a charity please contact Eddie, the Barrel Push Secretary, on 01677 450796

or

any member of the Organising Committee.

 

Early this year, with your help, the Barrel Push raised £3,500 which was then donated to four local charities.

Finghall History Project

 

Dear Villagers,

 

Following the very successful Village History Day back in January a small Group of people have been researching various aspects of Finghall's past. We are now pleased to report that graphics (i.e. artwork, design and content) for a Village Information Lectern (similar to the one shown below) are now complete. The graphics, which contain fascinating facts about Finghall's history, have been forwarded to a company specialising in the manufacture of heritage lecterns and signs. We are hoping the lectern will be installed near to the Queens Head by the end of the year.

 

 

The lectern is made from recycled plastic (as shown) and has an A1 sized panel with an anti-graffiti coating.

 

Thank you to all those who have supported this phase of the project including Richmondshire Area Partnership who have helped with funding.

 

Phase two is currently underway. Our aim is to produce a leaflet entitled ‘Exploring Finghall – A Walk Through Time', this will guide the reader on a walk around the village visiting many interesting and historic sites including Finghall Lane Station and St. Andrews Church.

 

If you would like to get involved in the History Project then please contact Nick Horn njhorn@clara.co.uk

 

Further updates to follow.
