WILLIAM Taylor was the recipient of the Headteacher’s Award at St Patrick’s CE School for showing determination to succeed. 

Star of the week certificates were awarded to Halle Garcia-Lay for a super effort in maths, Isabel O’Callaghan for great work in literacy, and Abby Mason for always trying her best.

HYPERFAST Broadband connections are making good progress. There are two routes into the village. Route one will be dug from Crooklands through to Gatebeck Farm and then to the village hall. Route two, giving resilience to the network, will come from Stainton via Summerlands. 

More volunteers are needed to help speed up the connection process. Further information is available from John Lyons on 07974 833850 or via johnplyons43@gmail.com.
