Local volunteer aims to increase dementia awareness in Escrick and the surrounding villages.
A campaign to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding around dementia has got the support of an Escrick volunteer. Vanessa Rolfe, is running a free ‘Dementia Friends’ Information Session on Thursday 22nd October and is looking for local people to come along.
Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, talks and acts about the condition. Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends programme to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.
The Session will take place at Escrick & Deighton Club at 7-9pm
Refreshments will be provided.>
Meeting on Village Survey Results
published on 16th Sep 2015
In July, a survey regarding potentially moving the Post Office into Escrick Club along with possible other services or activities was published. Part of it also covered future uses of the old bus stop/war memorial. The response from the village was massive and now we wish to discuss the results and the way forward with the village. On Tuesday 22nd September, 7.30 - 8pm at Escrick Club, the results of the survey will be discussed and future developments along with it. Chris Hailey-Norris from Selby AVS (Association of Voluntary services) will also be there to facilitate and answer questions. Children are welcome to attend. Please come along and have your say.

The Monday Players Present.... ABSURD PERSON SINGULAR
published on 9th Sep 2015
Escrick Village Hall. Thu 19th, Fri 20th & Sat 21st November 2015 - At 7.30pm
A comedy by Alan Ayckbourn
Meet three couples in their three kitchens on the Christmas Eves of three successive years. The "lower class" but very much up and coming Hopcrofts are in their bright new, gadget filled kitchen anxiously giving a little party for their bank manager and his wife and an architect neighbour. Next there are the architect and his wife in their neglected, untidy flat. Then the bank manager and his wife are in their large, slightly modernised, old Victorian style kitchen.
Running like a dark thread through the wild comedy of behind the scenes disasters at Christmas parties is the story of the advance of the Hopcrofts to material prosperity and independence and the decline of the others. In the final stages the little man is well and truly on top, with the others, literally and unnervingly, dancing to his tune……
Tickets (£7) available from: Members of The Monday Players
