Christmas Goodie Bags were a smash!

Kirdford Village Hall


It has been such a dismal year, with no events taking place in the Village, times have been hard both monetarily and mentally. The Chair of the Parish Council put forward the idea of giving goody bags to the children in the village for Christmas and it was unanimously voted a great idea and a sum of money was set aside for the project.

Mandy and Lynne raided the wholesalers and ordered in extra via the internet, the bags were made up, and a post was put on the Kirdford Noticeboard Facebook page.

Over 50 goody bags were handed out to children on Tuesday 22nd December and it was lovely to see everyone who came with a smile on their face.

The comments the Councillors received were heartwarming, and we are pleased it went down so well with the locals.

Let's hope next year is better and hopefully we will be able to do more things together as a community. 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all from Kirdford Parish Council.
