Local band Jaspa will be playing at the Staveley Arms on Friday 28th July.  The five-piece band, whose members all live locally, play rock and pop classics from the past 50 years and will feature this year at Ripon's Picnic in the Park on Yorkshire Day (1st August for the uninitiated!).  Contact the Staveley Arms for details or see

The section of the public footpath (part of the Ripon Rowel) that follows the tarmac drive just before Sleningford Grange at the northern end of the village will be closed temporarily for a couple of days in June/July while the drive is resurfaced.  The exact dates are not known, and will be weather-dependent, so we can only advise that walkers keep an eye out for signs.
