The Help For Heroes fundraiser on May the 19th at the Magnets Sports and Social Club was a success.
With the help of people from Tadcaster, the walkers for the H4H fundraiser added an extra £300 to their tally.
Not only was the music from Radio Mojo fantastic but there was also a cake which was donated to the cause by Contrary Cakes. The cake was sold by the slice to add to the funds raised by the ticket sales.
Thanks to everyone who attended, it was a good night and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, especially Kirsty Poskitt and Zoe Devine who also did a little turn on stage with a tambourine accompaniment.
It was also nice to see that some of the people had even brought their kids along to the event, which just goes to show that you’re never to young to dance along to the music…
Even the weather cleared and the sun cam out today for the Tadcaster Dog Show. The show was in aid of the Safe Anchor Trust who provide free access to the country’s waterways for special needs groups.
It was great to see that the dog show had attracted a lot of interest and a lot of local dogs.
Food and refreshments were provided by the Magnets Sports & Social Club, there were also stalls for raffles, dog treats and toys and even a dog portrait stand.
The show was a great success with the children too, there were prizes for a variety of fields in the Junior category.
The Safe Anchor Trust was established in 1995 to support and continue the canal trips project developed by the probation service in 1993.
By December 2009 over 100,000 passengers associated with 750 community groups had enjoyed outings on our boats. The primary aim of the Trust is to provide access to the canals for special needs groups, those with health mobility problems and socially disadvantaged groups. We also seek to support groups who often have difficulty in taking part in everyday leisure activity.
A major focus is to support organisations that require social and recreational activities to maintain or improve the help of their users.
We rely solely on voluntary contributions and donations for our service, for which the Trust is extremely grateful.

HEINEKEN Tadcaster, John Smith’s Brewery
HEINEKEN in the UK is the country’s leading cider and beer business and part of HEINEKEN N.V, the world’s most international brewer. Our portfolio of global brands includes Foster’s, Heineken®, Strongbow, John Smith’s and Bulmers, as well as heritage brands such as Newcastle Brown Ale. Over 2,400 HEINEKEN colleagues work across offices, breweries and cider mills in the UK; in Edinburgh, London, Manchester, and Herefordshire as well as Tadcaster.
The John Smith’s brewery site in Tadcaster has been used to brew beer since 1778, with the original John Smith starting his own brewery at the site in 1847. HEINEKEN took over the site in 2008 as part of a national takeover of brewing giant Scottish & Newcastle.
Today, we provide employment for 350 people locally, and still brew the majority of John Smith’s ale, alongside a range of other HEINEKEN products.
What a truly amazing evening at the Magnets Sports and Social Club last night. The fundraiser for the 2013 Tadcaster Carnival was a great success. The Forenziks, Kelly Bolland and James and Jess were fantastic. over 3 hours of music from local talent and the Guestlist.
The Guestlist, fronted by Big Ian was fantastic, the news for us is that Ian has agreed to play the Tadcaster Carnival with his extended band “Huge”. So if you missed them this time you can see them in July (really worth the wait).
I would like to thank everyone who made the Tadcaster Carnival Fundraiser a success especially Kirsty Poskitt, Nick and Zoe Devine for their brilliant work in pulling it all together.
Most importantly, thank you to everyone who came out to support the carnival and who dug deep to donate money and bought raffle tickets. We cant thank you all enough for your support.
If this is the type of turnout we receive for a fundraiser, I can only imagine what the turnout is going to be like for the actual carnival.

Tadcaster Town Council Elections 2013…
The candidates for Councillor this year were :
The Conservative Party Candidate – Chris Metcalfe
The Green Party Candidate – Garry Mervyn Kitchen
Labour Party Candidate – Steve Cobb
Each candidate presented their policies and agenda’s in April this year. From keeping a lid on Council taxes to ensure we all get value for money to supporting our local fire station to avoid closure and opposing any threats to do so.
In fairness I think all of the candidates had some excellent ideas for improving Tadcaster and doing what they can to make our town safer for residents and visitors.
The polling stations opened at 7am on the 2nd of May and stayed open until 10pm to allow people to vote when they could.
At around 1pm today the results were in, counted and published…
Chris Metcalfe too the Tadcaster vote by a long lead.
The final results can be seen below – statistics and images from northyorks.gov.uk
|Party (in alphabetical order)||Candidate||Votes polled||% of vote polled|
|The Conservative Party Candidate||Metcalfe, Chris||923||55|
|The Green Party Candidate||Kitchen, Garry Mervyn||146||9|
|Labour Party Candidate||Cobb, Steve||600||36|
