The weather has turned and there are rumours of snow. Its time to put a log on the fire and listen through the night to 'Test Match Special' coming live from Brisbane, Australia, whilst under the duvet. If you don't like cricket perhaps you could be feeding the Christmas cake, or even planning next summer's holiday.
Ahhh, next summer. It may seem a long way off, but we have big plans here at the Cluntergate. Here's one of them.
We have been very lucky to have been chosen as one of the recipients of the Co Op Community fund to host a big project called, 'The Grand Horbury and Cluntergate Parade'. It will be a huge carnival style event which will be on the lines of a 'New Orleans Mardi Gras' parade with marching bands, dancing, costumes, food and drink. All created by the good people of Horbury with the aid of some of the best carnival professionals around.
But… and here's a big 'BUT'. We can't do it without your help. We need you to shop at your local Co Op and use your loyalty card to choose the 'Cluntergate and Horbury Parade' as your good cause. This will mean that 1% of what you spend will go to help funding this excellent community project. Here are more details.
We'd like to raise more cash to make the project happen, so if you have any great ideas to contribute, don't hesitate to contact us.
To whet your appetite, here's a film about 'Mardi Gras'.
See you soon.
