Parish council: The clerk will continue to contact Craven District Council about the Tems Beck wall and drainage issues that parishioners have raised concerns about. Two vehicle activated signs are to be put up in the Giggleswick area in the next few weeks. The council is to look for quotes for barking the swing area of the playground and will look into drainage issues on the playground surface. The next parish meeting will be on Tuesday, October 8, at 7.30pm in the Reading Rooms (next to the vicarage).
Richard Whiteley Theatre: Next Thursday, September 26, there will be the first of the new initiative, the Gigg lectures. The idea is to provide illustrated lectures with the aim of inspiring, entertaining and challenging audiences through speakers from a range of backgrounds. The first will be Alan Hinkes who, in 2005, became the first Briton to climb all 14 of the world’s highest mountains. Next Sunday, September 29, the community cinema showing at 3.30pm will be The Great Gatsby. All tickets are available via giggleswick.org.uk/rwt or via 01729 893180.
Literary evening: On Monday, September 30, at 7.30pm Jan Michael will talk about her latest book, Moorside Boy, at St Alkelda’s Church. The story takes place in the present and in the 1840s when Benjamin Waugh, founder of the NSPCC, was growing up in Settle. The book will be on sale for a special price of £5, with all proceeds going to the NSPCC. Admission is £4, including drinks and snacks.
