This community website was set up in 2016 to help keep you up to date with everything that is happening in the Kirkby Malzeard, Laverton and Dallowgill area, and up to now we have had over 36000 visits to the site. It is a community venture by local residents, so if you want anything included just let us know! All inclusions, including information about businesses, are free. We hope you find this website interesting - new information is being added all the time, particularly to the Events Calendar which is updated regularly.

Latest News: 

* Congratulations to Kirkby Fisheries on being awarded second place in Harrogate Advertiser's Chip Shop of the Year, which, considering that they were competing against shops in larger centres such as Harrogate and Ripon, is an outstanding acheivement. Gianni was quoted as saying ' We are over the moon to be placed second and are grateful for all the support we have received from our loyal local customers. We would like to say a massive thank you for accepting us into the community and helping our little chippy go from strength to strength'.

* Thank you to Michael Jordan, Stephen Weld and everyone else involved in organising the coffee morning on November 10 to raise funds for the Poppy Appeal. There were some lovely songs and poems together with a display illustrating how the First World War affected local people and in total a sum of £1000 was raised. It was really good to see so many people from different generations present. Some photos of aspects of the commemoration are available on the News page.

* Masham Community Office is currently organising a lift-sharing scheme - information and links on the News page.

* The Parish Council has decided to retain the bus shelter near Kirkby Stores as it is still being used occasionally by children waiting for the school bus. New quotes for repairs will be obtained with repainting carried out by volunteers. It is hoped that some work can also be carried out in conjunction with Kirkby in Bloom to make its appearance more attractive.
