Apples From The Orchard Down Mill Lane

Here is a message from Beatrice
Hello Village,

As you probably know, Jon and I bought the Orchard over the road from The Mill earlier this year. One of the reasons being that we wanted to share the fruit with the Village.

Well, its harvest time and I have gathered loads of 'old variety' unsprayed cookers and eaters to fill everyone's fruit bowls and freezers.

Please bring your boxes, bags and car boots down over the next week and help yourselves, especially this weekend (no dogs please...hen territory.)

Jon, on the other hand, wants to dig the whole Orchard up as he is convinced that there is a stash of loot buried in there somewhere!

As you have probably heard, we are dealing with the Paparazzi down here. When you come you may like to come incognito...false beards and wigs strongly recommended!

Another Successful Music Festival

The organisers of the Bielby Music Festival just wanted to thank everyone who performed and attended this year's music festival.

In only it's second year, the festival was again well attended by villagers and their friends & families!

The weather was kind in that the rain held off although the winds did make it abit chilly but the cosy set up of the marquees gave the festival a warm, cosy & friendly feel and once everyone was up dancing we all soon warmed up.

Jenny & Matt enjoying dancing to Pink Cadillac!

Sorry Graham I didn't manage to get a pic of you in your brightly coloured hawaiian shirt and hat!

The face painting was a hit with the children and adults alike, as you can see from Steve below!

Here's one adult "raver" enjoying himself!

Some of the line up included folk singer Edwina Hayes whose voice was just amazing,

Snake Davis who is the Eurythmics' saxophonist, was a real treat to have up on stage,

Snake Davis with Pink Cadillac!

Colin who is a member of Pink Cadillac said that it was a highlight for him to play alongside Snake Davis,

Colin from Pink Cadillac on the guitar!

Other singrs in the line up included Stan Graham from York who entertained us with his self-penned songs, Jonathan Taylor from Pocklington who is a very talented musician, Soundsphere who sang songs from around the world were mesmerising and Caitlyn who is just 5 years old enjoyed humming and swaying along to their music and her mum said was even humming the songs a few days later. Margaret also said that she enjoyed their performance. Pink Cadillac also played and who as always got everyone dancing in the street, well in this case Margaret's field!

(Sorry if I haven't mentioned all the bands, I just can remember all the names but they were all great!)

Pink Cadillac performed twice and were just brilliant as always. They got everyone on their feet dancing.
Pink Cadillac!

It was a lovely touch by Beatrice to dedicate certain songs to family, friends & villagers!

Pink Cadillac also welcomed Richard onto the stage to sing along with them and we all thought Richard was brilliant.

Richard singing with Pink Cadillac and proud mum Janet smiling away in the crowds who were enjoying the performance.

A big thank you goes to Margaret for letting us use her field, we hope that it was left as tidy as we found it!

Margaret receiving a lovely bunch of flowers as a thank you.

Thanks to all the volunteers and helpers who helped to put up the stage and marquees before the event and those who made it back to the field the following day to help pick up litter and take the stage and marquees down. Your help was much appreciated. (There was a certain spring in Vince's step as he rounded the corner and offered his help, which was timed to perfection!!)

In turn the villagers would also like to thank Ian & Richard and all those involved in organising this event, without their time and effort Bielby wouldn't enjoy such wonderful events, so thank you for all your hard work.

Again the event raised over £2000 for Macmillan Nurses, so thanks to everyone who supported the event.

We look forward to this event next year.

(If anyone has any photos of the event they would like to share with us on the blog or if anyone has any photos of Pink Cadillac that they can add to the Pink Cadillac facebook page then please let us know and I'll send you an email address to send them in.)
