Tennis open sessions – August 2015 – Tuesdays at 7 pm


Slingsby Tennis court open sessions August 2015 -Tuesdays at 7 p.m.

Geoff Bishop writes:-

It is good to report that the tennis courts are being used by young and old and it has been decided to make Tuesdays at 7pm an open time when anyone can come and join in the fun on a challenging surface! So if you are someone who hasn’t played for years but would love to start again, this is for you! Any standard welcome.

You are, of course, free to play at any time on any day. See you there!

(We understand the sessions will continue through August and maybe longer, depending on weather and light conditions)





BIG CLEAN OF SLINGSBY CHURCH Saturday 8th August 2015 from 10 a.m.

Annual Big Clean of Slingsby Church on Saturday 8th August 2015 from 10 a.m.

Please can you spare an hour to help?

The church members write:-

We are very grateful to the regular volunteers who join the rota for routine cleaning of the church, and thank them for their continued support. Once a year we try to tackle some of the extra things our regular volunteer cleaners do not have the time to do, to keep the church looking welcoming for visitors and regular users.

Keeping this large building looking good is a heavy task for the small regular congregation, so please could you spare an hour to come and help?

Mid-morning refreshments will be provided.

Please assemble from 10 a.m. bringing sweeping brushes, dusters etc. and any other equipment for the jobs which you feel you can help with such as:  

Inside: dusting, sweeping, window cleaning, polishing, higher cleaning, cleaning the kitchen area, brass and silver cleaning.

 Outside: removal of ivy and other growth from around church walls, clearing weeds around drains, sweeping porch and pathways.

Thank you!
