The Damson Day Fair attracted a record number of almost four thousand visitors. The fine weather and the fact that the Damson Blossom this year was at its most spectacular for many years, all helped to boost this popular annual event.

Crosthwaite and Lyth WI welcomed members from Bingley Five Rise Frocks WI to Damson Day. They enjoyed a Damson Blossom walk and afternoon tea with Crosthwaite members. They presented Crosthwaite with a white floribunda rose bush, named ‘With Love’ which will be planted by the cross on St. Mary’s Green.
