Wardington Playground – Playground 200 Club

Wardington Playground Playground 200 Club After 20+ years Wardington Parish Council have taken the decision to end the Playground 200 Club Over recent years there has been a steady decline in the number of members of the Club.

This, coupled with recently imposed bank charges, has meant that maintaining the 200 Club is now of negligible net benefit to the upkeep of the Playground. The Parish Council recognize the importance of the Playground to the local community and are committed to maintaining it for the benefit of current and future generations. It will be funded by continuing to take advantage of grants that are available from time to time and

Captain Tom’s Flag by Roderick Stell

“Tomorrow will be a good day” is the expression of hope for the future which many of us associate with the late Captain Tom Moore.

Caught up by the media, the few hundred pounds he had hoped to raise became millions. Captain Tom’s autobiography of 2020 came to my attention after his death because he was well-known for his roots in Keighley, my own home town, and I discovered that he and my father had both served in
