Our first ever Christmas Fayre was a brilliant success yesterday. Spearheaded by Leanne Heaton and her meticulous organisation in the build up and throughout the day was acknowledged by all of the stall holders, the committee and the whole community who turned up in their numbers. We had a guest appearance from The Grinch and a very big special mention must go to the hard-working bar staff who were rushed off their feet all afternoon as the tills kept on ringing. The choirs of Lawns Park Primary School and The Farnley Academy kept the crowd entertained by singing Christmas Carols and helped to raise monies towards their chosen charities which were Parkinson’s UK and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Today we had 3 Bentleys turn out for our 3rd XI against Tong /Park Esholt in the Dales Council Cricket League at The Greyhound at Tong Village. Orin (right) made his senior debut and joined his elder brother Quin (left) while Jason Bentley has been a great servant to New Farnley Cricket Club playing in his 39th season.

Owzat! Developers behind the new Stonebridge Beck residential development in Wortley have agreed a major sponsorship deal with a West Leeds sports club.
Rushbond Plc and Advent Developments have teamed up with New Farnley Cricket Club for the 2023 cricket season, as part of their joint community support programme.
Georgina Maud, speaking on behalf of the developers, said: “The club is located very close to Stonebridge Beck and I am sure it will prove a popular social destination for residents. Not only do they run a number of cricket teams for both adults and juniors, they also have a lovely club house which is open during the week, serving delicious food.”
John Baldwin, Chairman of New Farnley Cricket Club, commented: “I cannot thank Georgina and her colleagues enough for their most generous support. Hopefully the residents will take advantage of all the club has to offer which includes a fully equipped gym.
“As someone who has spent a lifetime in the building industry I have watched the work being carried at Stonebridge Beck with interest. I have to say the whole scheme looks absolutely superb.”
On completion Stonebridge Beck will consist of 112 properties within a unique mill village location offering a choice of mill townhouses, cottages and new build homes. Prices start from £265,000.
The scheme is located on the former Stonebridge Mills site off Stonebridge Lane, next to the ring road.
