A huge thank you to everyone who supported the Macmillan Coffee Morning on Saturday 30th September. Thank you if you helped in any way — serving coffee, baking (or providing) cakes for the stall, setting up & tidying up, spending money on refreshments & for simply coming along to share in this wonderful time of camaraderie.

With your help we raised the magnificent total of £354 which will make a huge difference to the work that this organisation is able to accomplish.

If you took part in the competition ("Guess the Height of the Cake Tower"), which alone raised £28, the closest guess was that of Marion Auty. The hidden number under the silver panel was 94cm & Marion's guess of 40 inches (or 100cm when converted) came the closest — well done! Many thanks to everyone who had a go!

Stokesley Remembers
Stokesley Bear: Fri 23 Nov 2:32pm

The memory is a funny thing, I've found. If I don't make a note of something I need to do, I find that I forget to do it. On the other hand, I remember things that I don't need to do anything about. Yet again, I when I do remember things, I sometimes remember them incorrectly.On the weekend of 10-11 November, it was difficult to forget that, as a country, we marked a hundred year...
