Music date: The Showband, billed as the premiere entertainment band in the Tees Valley, will be appearing at Hutton Rudby village hall on September 14 at 7.30pm. They will be playing songs and music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. For tickets, priced at £10, contact (01642) 701744 or 701586.
Quarry closed: The last stone has been taken from Wath Quarry, near Hovingham, before the owners Lafarge Tarmac mothball the site. Production stopped at the site on Friday, August 16, after the company operating it merged with another in January this year, and reviewed all its production.
Village lifesavers: People in the twin villages of Gillamoor and Fadmoor on the North York Moors have bought two defibrillators, with one being sited at Gillamoor Primary School and the other at Fadmoor village hall. Locals raised the money because of the remoteness of their communities to the nearest health centre at Kirkbymoorside.
Charity boost: A charity which supports sight impaired people has been given a funding boost to encourage new members and expand its services. Sight Support Ryedale is to receive £54,000 during the next two years in the latest round of Big Lottery grants.
