Village’s birthday success

HUTTON Buscel’s 900th anniversary has been hailed a huge success.

Festivities included a Songs of Praise in the parish church, attended by the Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, Lord Crathorne.

Donations of £775 are now being made to each of the three chosen charities: Sightsavers, Candlelighters and St Matthew’s Church, Hutton Buscel.

Organiser Neil Gardner said: “I cannot thank everyone enough. We had a marvellous weekend and not only were we able to celebrate this auspicious occasion of the village’s 900th anniversary, but we also raised enough money to give a little to the charities we were supporting.”
