An important message to all residents from Brian Watkinson, our village Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator, and from Sharon Wilson, our Police Community Support Officer:

"Dear Neighbours, Friends and Village Residents

Have we become a little complacent in our lovely Dales village? We need your support - please read on. Following the burglary and car break-ins earlier this year, Sharon, our local PCSO, and I got together and planned a multi agency presentation to cover several areas of Security and Safety. Each of the following agencies will make a 15/20-minute presentation detailing the services and advice they can offer and there will be a Q&A sesssion afterwards.

Police                    Fraud and Neighbourhood Watch

Trading Standards  Door step selling and other fraud issues

Ambulance            Defibrillator and First Responders

Fire & Rescue        Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms

Each agency will have a display offering a range of information and leaflets. This will provide a focal point, allowing those present an opportunity to discuss matters on a one-to-one basis with each agency.

This FREE event is on Thursday 20th September in the Village Hall and everyone is welcome to attend. Doors open 6.45 pm and presentations will begin at 7.00pm. We plan to provide tea and coffee.

Please do take this unique opportunity to learn from experts in safety and security matters, especially if you have any personal concerns.

It would help greatly if leaders or members of groups such as WOW, the Oil Club, the Roseberry Green Association, 50 Club and Quiz groups would notify their members together with any friends and neighbours. I am sure every one who attends will gain something positive and useful. We plan to do a leaflet drop - dependent on printing cost -  in early September to the 300 homes in the area. Anyone able to assist in either leaflet dropping, setting up the hall, or serving refreshments on the night is asked to contact Brian on as soon as possible.

For any further information about the event, please contact PCSO Sharon Wilson at or dial 101 and ask for extension 35559".

Welcome everybody to the brand new North Stainley Village Website!


High Batts, North Stainley's local nature reserve, has launched 'In at the Start', a major long-term project based around the new Hansons Pennycroft quarry.

...and getting paid for it?  There is a job opportunity at the Village Hall for a Caretaker/Cleaner.

North Stainley has a Community Public Access Defibrillator (CPAD) which is kept in a yellow box on the Village Hall veranda, facing the recreation ground.  The only way to access the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) which it contains, is to dial 999 (or 112).  Would you know when to use it and what to do with it?  If not, please read on - it may save someone's life.

Many of you will have seen David Attenborough's Blue Planet episode when he exposed the frightening levels of plastic pollution in our oceans. The programme caused quite a stir and there is now pressure from all directions for something to be done about it.
