December:

Important !   Please book your place in advance with Alison by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and note that all walks meet at 9.30 am apart from the 9am start on Saturday 5th.


Our walk programme for December is partly deja vu, as it includes some walks cancelled in November due to the lockdown rules. With the latest news, it looks like walking in groups of 6 will be possible again. At present we have not planned an after Christmas walk, as it usually involves a meal.

 
Our first December walk is the Wenning Valley Circular on Saturday 5th. Note this is now a 9am start. We’ll walk straight from Lairgill, up the valley on the north side, to reach High Hazel Hall Farm and Clapham Station. The return will be on the south side of the valley, via Gruskham. Expect soggy ground. 10.5 miles.

On Tuesday 8th we park at Chapel-le-Dale Church for 9.30am. We walk behind the Church, passing the first pothole Hurtle Pot and continue to Ellerbeckand on to Broadrake. A detour by Haws Gill Wheel goes back to Philpin Lane. At the main road we head north and take a stile on the right up the original Ingleborough path, past Braithwaite Wife Hole; at the gate turn left and follow the path back past the last pothole Great Douk Cave, before descending past Southerscales to the start. 7 miles

The car park at Barbon Village Hall with an honesty box is our start at 9.30am on Sunday 13th. The walk is Barbon Low Fell and is 8.2 miles.

We park at Clapham Station car park at 9.30am on Wednesday 16th for a 5.1 circular via paths, with a minor road walk back. We walk from the station by paths to Giffords and Wenning Side, and then take a track towards Clapham Woods. We turn and walk down to Keasden Beck, following it to Turnerford Bridge. After crossing Keasden road we walk via Long Bank and Watson House to Lawsings returning to Clapham Station by the minor road.

                                                             Fancy a committee role right here in Bentham ?

Here it is – The Co-op Throw Away Friday!  
The Co-op Throw Away Friday is starting right here in Bentham throwAwayFridaycoop
with a brand new neighbourhood pilot scheme!
Every last Friday in the month, we are encouraging Bentham
folk to leave out any tins of food they don’t want or need
and they will be collected for the Pop Up Pantry.
The PUP serves Bentham and the surrounding Ingleborough area. It is being piloted in one or two streets first and then hoping to be rolled out across
the whole village.
So what do we need to do? Simple – Leave out any unwanted tins on your door step, either Thursday night or early Friday morning (on the last Friday of each month!) and a neighbour who lives on your street will collect them for you.

The Government has announced that from Thursday Sept 24, venues including hospitality, leisure & tourism and close contact services, will be legally required to display an official NHS QR code poster. The new NHS COVID19 app will launch the same day. 
You can create and download a poster for your business here: https://www.gov.uk/create-coronavirus-qr-poster
More info is on our website here, including details of how we can help if your business needs assistance with printing: https://www.cravendc.gov.uk/coronavirus-advice-and-information/nhs-covid-19-app-information-for-businesses/
 Are you a farmer/ land owner in or around Bentham looking to utilise or diversify a piece of unused land?
If so, please do get in touch.
The Bentham Allotment and Community Garden Association need a base for their environmentally friendly, community initiative here in Bentham.
As a previous farm secretary I can assist in any DEFRA or funding applications, whether that be via Entry Level Stewardship or any other government diversification route.
So wondering how to get that space used then please do get in touch with Carolyne on 62512 or by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
           
Hello, As well as still doing my Coop role,
I’m the new Bentham Volunteering Campaign Development Worker
working towards creating more volunteers to work with you and your charity/community groups.

I am currently collecting data to form a database of the numbers and types of volunteers you may be looking for.
For instance, driver, care worker, gardener etc.
It would help me at this time to discover what your volunteering needs are and then I can gather some form of data baseline to illustrate where we basically stand.
This initial step is simply about ascertaining the need.Please could you get back to me with just a few words of your current requirements. For instance; one cook, two cleaners, three drivers, gardener, carer etc.
Many thanks, Carolyne Lobb.
To Contact Carolyne, Please call 62512  or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.   Or use our forn and mark it for Carolyne

 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), Are now accepting commercial waste at all HWRCs, as we previously did prior to their temporary closure in March due to COVID-19, with the exception of Harrogate Stonefall HWRC.

Commercial waste is any waste  from a commercial organisation, a business, a trade, a person’s employment, a landlord, a village hall, an educational establishment or a holiday caravan.

With the impending changes in the lockdown rules,  Pubs reopening and tons of exciting things about to happen.
We are compiling and publishing info about where you can eat and places to stay in Bentham,
At the moment this is a work in progress and will be updated as we go along.
Use the menu item Places to Stay, It provides a category drop down or a simple list. 
The Places to Eat is simply a random list with a picture or two and some words. 
The idea is to support Bentham businesses and at the same time provide a resource for our visitors.
For food and drink you should check with the establishment and probably book ahead. 
This sort of stuff is usually available from our tourist information point, However the decision has been made not to open our Tourist point this season.
If you have a Bentham business providing accommodation or food and drink and wish to be included in our Tourism information,
Please get in touch via the Town Clerk,  email townclerk (at) benthamtowncouncill.co.uk  and we can go from there.
