Last Sunday it gave me great pleasure when I was asked to present the trophy to the winners of the Charity Spud Run organized by Dave Ryan. Dave was fund raising on behalf of Queensbury Cricket Club, the older ones among us will be more familiar with the old Union Croft CC back in the 1960s. The photos are of me presenting the winning mens team and also appearing are the winning ladies team and a photo of most of the people involved in the event. QCC have made a great job of the the pitch and pavilion and Lynda and I are happy to support them in any way I can, good luck for the future Lads and Lasses. Best wishes Councillors Paul n Lynda Cromie Queensbury Ward Independents.

On Sunday 9th November 2014, in Queensbury we had our Remembrance day parade, it left the Scout HQ on Albert Crescent and was led by the local Scout Band known as The Revolution Show Corps.
The route to the Cenotaph was lined with people showing their respect for the fallen heroes and there were well over a thousand people surrounding the Cenotaph waiting for the parade to arrive.
Les Evans the British Legion rep and our Vicar Sue Shrine lead the service of remembrance and laying of the wreaths at the Cenotaph, then we paraded to Holy Trinity Church once again led by the Scouts for a church service.
During the Cenotaph service Les was taken ill and had to be helped to a seat, an ambulance was called and he was checked over and then taken home to recover from his ordeal.
After the Church service I called at his home to see him and although groggy he was upbeat and jovial, I was pleased that he was OK and wished him well and asked him to take things steady.
Kind regards Paul
Today at the Remembrance service at Clayton Heights Lynda presented Bert Haigh the treasure of Asa Briggs Bowling Club with a £500 donation to help pay for their new lawn mower.
Bert on behalf of Asa Briggs accepted our cheque he had originally applied for the money from the Queensbury Ward Budget last year but was turned down by the Bfd South Area Committee.
To be turned down by the committee after the Ward Councillors had approved the application was appalling so Lynda and I promised that we would pay them out of our own pocket and that they would not loose out.
Kind regards Councillors Paul n Lynda Cromie
The next committee meeting will be held at The George III public house, Chapel Street, Queensbury, starting at 6.30 pm.
I am pleased to be able to bring you news of this fantastic achievement by our friend Robin Naylor.
Please support the hard work he has done.
For those of you who attended the Cycle Queensbury event earlier this year you may remember the Aquabox people they had a stall just off Cockin Lane on the Great Northern Trail.
Kind regards and blessings Paul n Lynda
Hope you are well and thank you for spreading the word about the Balsam Bash in Littlemoor Park. It was such a big success and were booked in to repeat again next June.
On a slightly different note…
I wonder if you had heard of our Rotary River Aire Challenge? It all happened in September to raise funds for Aquabox the water Charity.
A local man Robin Naylor canoed 5 marathons in 5 days down the length of the River Aire to help with the cause.
On the 19th November at Sandal Farm, we are having a bit of a ‘do’ to celebrate the success and honour Robin and Aquabox for their efforts.
It would be great if you could attend our finale evening and spread the word for us.
I have attached the invite for you.
