Crosthwaite Jumble Sale and Auction raised almost £800, due in part to some very generous donations of high value items which were successfully auctioned. All funds raised go towards supporting the upkeep of the Village Hall.

The Open Garden at Low Fell West raised a record amount of over £1000 for NGS charities. Helped by the glorious weather, visitors enjoyed spectacular displays of many varieties of spring flowers in this idyllic setting.

Crosthwaite and Lyth WI and visitors enjoyed a fascinating talk from Adrian Lees entitled Picturesque- the Crosthwaite Connection. Through photographs, maps and historical references the links between our local landscape, the River Gilpin and William Gilpin, the founder of the Picturesque movement, were traced. Highly informative to both newcomers to the area and long established residents, all learned something they didn’t already know about the place they live.

Crosthwaite Village Hall are holding a 60s Night on Saturday June 22nd (7.30pm).

Admission is £5, bring your own drinks, refreshments included.

There will be music, dancing, trivia quiz and much more, all ages welcome.
