AH - Nearly There

On Tuesday members of the Parish Council and other guests attended a ceremony organised by Saffron Housing to celebrate the completion of Denton’s long-awaited Affordable Housing.

They were told that the first tenants of the properties were due to receive the keys of their new homes on Tuesday August 2nd. We look forward to appropriate house-warming parties!

Development Plans

Information about potential sites for new housing in the village is now available on a new page in the Features section. It will be updated as more details become available.

Fun For All

Providing a fun-packed experience for all members of the family is the objective at this year’s Dentill event.

As well as the usual displays of traditional farming practices, including ploughing and steam powered thrashing, there will be plenty of “things to do” for everybody attending. This time there will be more emphasis on attracting younger visitors with donkey rides and a Pet’s Corner. As in previous years, static displays of vintage cars and equipment will be supplemented by a vintage flying display.

It look as though the third Dentill, on Sunday September 25th, is going to be a truly vintage affair.

A Model Performance

Members of Denton Art Group had an exciting time this week — for the first time they had been promised a “model” on which to practice their arts at their weekly session. But was it to be male or female — and how much would be revealed?

A record turn-out resulted; more than 15 members turned up at the Village Hall on Wednesday and were given the opportunity of sketching in charcoal, a new technique for many, guided by tutor Chris Bardsley. The model, who turned out to be male, struck four different poses for ten minutes each. He did very well to remain still for so long — without, alas, revealing too much.

However, all the members had a great time. The group are now taking a summer break but sessions will restart in September.
