Queen Margaret's Burns Night Supper and Ceilidh
published on 18th Dec 2017
We invite you to join us for a QM Burns Night Supper & Ceilidh on Thursday 25 January...
We will start our celebrations with welcome drinks from 18:45 and a chance to chat with other guests prior to sitting down for supper in St Margaret's Chapel at 19:15.
The QM Catering Team will be pulling out all the stops to serve a delicious four course Burns Supper with the traditional dishes of Cullen Skink, Haggis, Neeps & Tatties, Aberdeen Angus and Cranachan. We will of course honour the tradition of 'addressing the haggis' and toasting with a wee dram of whisky. After tea and coffee have been served the Aluinn Ceilidh band will strike up and encourage everyone to take to the dance floor. It doesn't matter if you don't know your Gay Gordons from your Flying Scotsman, help will be on hand - enthusiasm is more important than dancing expertise!
The evening is expected to finish around 22:30. Tickets for the event are £35 and this includes all drinks, including wine with the meal and the entertainment. Proceeds from the evening will go to the QM Bursary Fund.
Parents, families and friends of QM are all welcome to attend. To book your tickets please email email@example.com.>
Waste and recycling collections over Christmas
published on 6th Dec 2017
Recycling box collections due on Monday 25 December will be brought forward to Saturday 23 December.
Waste bin collections due on New Year’s Day (Monday 1 January) will take place on Saturday 6 January.
Residents will be provided with an additional red refuse sack for their additional waste as they will go five additional days between collections. The red sacks are 90 litres in capacity which is almost half the capacity of a standard wheelie bin.
In order to focus attention on collecting wrapping paper, present packaging, glass and tins, foil and all household plastics (apart from thin film), the Council will once again be suspending green waste collections from Monday 18 December, with collections restarting the week beginning Monday 15 January.

published on 31st Oct 2017
The Playing Fields Association AGM takes place at 8.30pm on MONDAY 13th NOVEMBER at Escrick & Deighton Club.

The AGM is a good opportunity to find out more and to get involved with the playing fields association, which raises funds for, and manages the village playing fields and play area. It would be really good to have some new volunteers to help this worthwhile cause.>

THEFT- by Monday Players
published on 13th Oct 2017
Monday Players next production is...
THEFT - A comedy by Eric Chappell
John Miles is successful, determined and wealthy. When he returns from dinner out with wife Barbara and best friends Trevor and Jenny to find his house has been burgled, he's furious, particularly as the burglar may still be in the house.
And when the local copper appears from nowhere, John assumes they have found their bumbling burglar, Spriggs.
But as Spriggs starts to expertly manipulate, cajole and corrupt them, we begin to wonder if he's much, much cleverer than they think.
With a hidden safe, childhood rivalries, guilty secrets and everything to lose, five very different people play an escalating and hilarious game of cat and mouse...
16th, 17th and 18th November 2017 at 7.30pm
The Village Hall, Escrick
Tickets available from:
Monday Players Members
