Rufforth Living Advent Calendar
Covid seems to have interfered with lots of the usual village activities so this year Michelle Hills has kindly organised a village living advent calendar; 24 homes will decorate a window of their house revealing it on the relevant date in December.
As you’re walking through the village in December, keep your eyes peeled for the new advent windows opening.
Thank you to Michelle and all who have volunteered to decorate a window.
Please click to view the latest timetable and fares on the Connexions website.
The subject of dog fouling continues to blight the villages. Residents are reminded of their responsibilities with regard to clearing up after their dogs.
There are bins situated throughout both villages and along the cycle path.
Please be considerate to others.
Community Speed Watch
We are always looking for volunteers in Rufforth and Knapton to help reduce traffic speed by the use of hand held speed guns, If you are interested please contact the clerk by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01904 738751.
