 Latest news from Alne Village:

14-Jan-2019: The January mid-month conundrum. A man lives in Manhattan and has girlfriends in The Bronx and Brooklyn. He visits one of them each weekend but he can't decide which one he prefers so he goes to the subway and gets on the first train that arrives. Trains come in both directions at 10-minute intervals. Over time, he finds that he is spending 90% of his weekends in Brooklyn and only 10% in The Bronx. Why is this? Answer on 31-January - no prizes apart from proud satisfaction!

02-Jan-2019: 262 souls attended the Christingle in St Mary's church on Christmas Eve, the second highest total on record. At the equally-popular pop-up pub afterwards in the Village Hall, tribute was paid to John Teasdale on his completion of 31 years of service on Alne Parish Council. He is pictured (on the left) receiving RHS membership, a gift voucher and a framed plaque from the Parish Council chairman. First elected in 1987, John stood down in 2018 and has now moved to Tadcaster to be nearer his family. [Photo courtesy of Sandra Raper]

12-Nov-2018: Now updated New History item. A photograph of the steam engine boiler explosion that took place at Alne Station in 1877, plus some information on this event, can be seen by clicking here.

30-Oct-2018: The new verges were seeded in mid-September but, for whatever reason, the seed didn't take. NYCC have now agreed to lay turf and this work will take place next week. Residents of Main Street are requested not to walk on the new turf until it has fully grown in and to continue to ensure that all vehicles, including delivery drivers, keep off all verges. In the unlikely event of a prolonged dry spell, we will also ask for their help in watering.
