Breakfast Fundraiser

On Sunday 28th September, Friends of Melsonby Methodist Primary School (previously known as Melsonby Methodist School PTA), will be hosting a Breakfast Fundraiser. This will be a whole community event – so please spread the word! We will be serving French style breakfasts – coffee, pastries, juice etc, to enjoy with family, friends – or on your own enjoying twenty minutes catching up with the Sunday papers! Breakfast will be served 9:30 – 11:00.


Alongside the Breakfast fundraiser we will be holding a book sale. Please can you leave any good condition, pre-loved books you are happy to donate with Miss Rush. Books for children and adults please! You will also have the opportunity to order from a great selection of well priced new books from The Book People.

We hope you can make it!

Melsonby World War 1 heroes

Ian Simpson and Brian Hird are attempting to gather information for the names on the Melsonby War Memorials(inside the church).  There are six name for WW1: James Jackson, Arthur Gregory, Wilson Robinson, Willis Wharton, John Robert Souter and William Henry Souter, plus one name for WW2: Vernon William Kirk.  Another name we have added to the list is George Herbert Gibson who was killed in WW1 and is mentioned on one of the gravestones.
We have obtained war records etc, including where each is either buried or commemorated overseas, but would welcome any further information including background, photos etc.  The only photograph we have at the moment is of James Jackson, who is also included in the Hutton Magna memorial.  We would also welcome any other information about anyone from the village who served in WW1.
Once we have gathered all the items we hope to provide a display in the church.
