Comedy drama: The latest Jaywalkers’ production, Men of the World, will be performed in the institute tomorrow (Friday). Tickets cost £7 from Joan on 01535 630872 or from the Post Office.
Open day: The long-awaited revamp of the interior of the village institute will be finished this month and the regular hirers back in the building again. The building has been transformed inside. Come along and see it at the official opening on Saturday, October 12. There will be refreshments in the afternoon, Damian from the choir will be playing the piano and at 4.30pm the building will be formally “opened” by one of the eldest and one of the youngest residents of the village. In the evening there will be a dinner dance. The signature Cononley Cassoulet will be served using sausages specially designed for the occasion by Ian Hall, of New Laithe Butchers in Cross Hills. Music will be provided by Jasper on the piano, followed by a disco. Tickets cost £7.50, including food.
Music marathon: More funds are needed to complete outstanding jobs at the institute, and another music marathon will be held on Saturday, November 9. It will follow the same format as the last two, with continuous music from 2.30pm to 11.30pm by anyone who wants to sing, play and dance (and get themselves sponsored if possible). You can be a beginner or a professional, individuals or groups. Cononley Singers will again be performing in the evening. Sponsor forms will be available from the shop and you can either put your name on the list there or contact Joan on 01535 630872 or Andy on 01535 636208. Also, volunteers are needed to make cakes and serve refreshments. In the evening there will be a bar. Entry is free, so you can pop in and out to see the performers.
St John’s Church: Sunday’s service in St John’s is Holy Communion at 11am, when the preacher will be the Rev Paul Corrie.
