Mini Antiques Roadshow

Foulridge Parish Council held a Mini Antiques Roadshow on Sunday 19th August in the Village Hall. The well respected, Jonathan Cook of Heliers Auctions in Blackburn along with his colleague Philip, were on hand for valuations & advice. A steady stream of folk came through the door with various items for valuation: A beautiful jade ring handed
down in a family valued at £200 – £300; a collection of Clarice Cliff pottery; a chrome jaguar from the front of A 1950’s jaguar car valued at £50 – £60 and a gentleman who brought in a penny whistle played us a tune! There were 42 valuations with some people leaving the items with Jonathan to go to auction and others only wanting some information about their treasures. There were people from all walks of life: Foulridgers; people from the surrounding area who had seen it advertised on posters and the website; a lady came at 10.30 as she thought it started at 10 am (not 12 as advertised) and one gentleman came on the bus from Burnley, unfortunately expecting THE Antiques Roadshow which is on TV! Another lady who runs an animal rescue service, had come to sell her personal Items as the vet bills were becoming too much for her. It was a successful and enjoyable afternoon.

2019 FOULRIDGE CALENDAR

Foulridge Parish Council are pleased to launch their 2019 Calendar with a second edition of lovely photographs.

Yes, it is hard to think of Christmas and calendars when the sun is shining in the middle of July but last year the 2018 calendar sold out by November and we were lucky enough to be able to order more.

The calendars are on sale now at the usual outlets and many thanks must go to;

Ingham’s Butchers
Foulridge Social Club
The Hare and Hounds
Cafe Cargo

Or, if you contact the number on the poster and leave a message, they can be delivered to your door. The calendars are £6.00 each including a cardboard envelope ready for posting to your family and/or friends.

2019 CALENDAR POSTER

Village Plant Theft

We have had more plant thefts from the planters. Over the last 2/3 weeks there have been 2 pots of daffodils and 3 pots of summer flowers stolen from planters lining Skipton Road.

Today, Tuesday 19th June between the hours of  08.30hrs and 11.45hrs  were 6 small conifers stolen from the large planters opposite the Four Elephants!  Did anyone see anything?

We expected (unfortunately) some pots to go missing but this is quite unacceptable!

A resident witnessed a man stealing plants from her own garden yesterday! Could it be the same person?

These activities are being reported to the police who take a very dim view of this petty theft. They will be keeping an eye out for any culprit.

MINI ANTIQUES ROADSHOW

Look in the attic, under the bed, in the garage, anywhere you think your old Aunt Sally’s vase may be lurking! She always said that it was worth something…… well now’s the time to find out!

Foulridge Parish Council are holding a ‘Mini Antiques Roadshow’. The knowledgeable Jonathan Cook from Heliers Auctions in Blackburn who has appeared in Flog It, Dickinson’s Real Deal and Antiques Road Trip will be on hand to advise and value items. These can be left with Jonathan to go to auction at Heliers if you wish.

Admission £2 including one free valuation,
further valuations £2 each.
on Sunday 19th August 12noon – 4.00pm

SEE YOU THERE!

THE JO COX GREAT GET TOGETHER

This event was a great success last year and so to celebrate the life of Jo Cox, two years after her tragic death, Foulridge Parish Council are again holding an Afternoon Tea for Residents of Foulridge on Sunday 24th June at 2pm – 4pm. Jo would have been 44 years old on this date.

 

“We are far more united and
have far more in common than
that which divides us”.

 

 

 

Our background music will be by Trawden String Quartet who are kindly donating their services again as they are also strong believers in bringing our communities together.
Yes, this is a free event but donations will be accepted for the Foulridge Village Hall Fund.
Below is the event report from last year which appeared in the Colne Times and a photograph showing Trawden String Quartet on the stage.

 

‘Many events were held in June to remember Jo Cox, MP for Spen & Batley, a year after she was murdered.

In her first speech to Parliament Jo said, “We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us”.

Jo wanted a  chance to bring our communities together to celebrate what unites us.

So to bring our own community together, Foulridge Parish Council invited villagers to afternoon tea . Trawden String Quartet  entertained and they were kind enough to give their services free. Donations totalling £185 to Pendleside Hospice were accepted in  memory of our late Chairman Ivan Marriott who supported this event.’

Our 2019 calendar will also be released at this event. Last year our calendar was a great success and we are pretty sure that this, our second collection of Foulridge photographs, will be as successful. The calendar makes an ideal gift, especially for friends and family who now live away from the village. It comes with a sturdy envelope for your convenience.

A SECOND DEFIBRILLATOR FOR THE VILLAGE

A defibrillator has now been installed at the Hare and Hounds on Skipton Road thanks to a donation by the Sutton Trust. It is up and running and although the defibrillator is user friendly, training is to be take place in the near future.

Thanks also must go to the owner of the Hare and Hounds who readily agreed to house it on the outside of the building.

Watch this space for more information!
