On 12 January 2017at 8.00pm, author and art historian Suzanne Fagence Cooper looks at the work of two major 20th century British artists ─ John Piper, particularly noted for his dramatic pictures of historic buildings, and Eric Ravilious, a brilliant watercolourist, print-maker and designer ─ and its potent influence on a range of young contemporary artists, some of whom are Yorkshire-based.

Linton Antique Society invites you to the first meeting of the new season.
Jet is one of Britain’s only two native gemstones and is particularly associated with Whitby. At Linton Memorial Hall on 13 October 2016 at 7.30pm, jeweller Rebecca Tucker from The Original Whitby Jet Shop traces its long history and its fluctuations in popularity from Roman times through to the present day. She gives a fascinating insight into the everyday life of the workers who crafted it and the social etiquette of the ladies who wore jet jewellery.
Here’s a selfie taken by local resident Peter Mirczuk of the shuttle bus in action on Saturday afternoon, 23rd July. The bus is full and the passengers are all in good humour. Could this be because they were on the way to the beer festival at the Windmill Inn, I wonder?
Following our meeting with you at the Civic Hall, Cllr Robinson and I have been working with Officers to get the evening shuttle up and running as we envisaged in the meeting. You’ll recall that the desire was to extend the shuttle provision into the evening to support the movement of residents between Linton and Collingham.
AAA Cars of Castleford will be providing the service with a 16-seater minibus. I am informed that Officers attempted to acquire a local firm but none were interested, nevertheless AAA Cars do already have contracts with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and I am told they are reliable.
Thank you for your help in bringing this evening shuttle about, we will need to make sure the shuttle is now well used.
Janet – perhaps a few posters in the pub might be useful so customers know to use the service. I’ll try get something in Piccolinos too.
Ashley, Diana – please can you circulate this info around your various contacts.
If you have any further questions you know where we are.
Every year, I run a few sports events against local teams. I pit them against my own teams and try raise money through match fees that each player pays and charity merchandise
I have attached the details below of our next event
This year’s event is in the village of Collingham.
The final talk in Linton Antique Society’s 2015/16 season explores life in Georgian York, which was the social centre for polite society in the North of England. York’s winter ‘season’ and its races provided an alternative to London’s attractions, especially in view of the dangers and discomforts of travelling 200 miles to the capital at that period. Julia Mander from Fairfax House, refurbished by John Carr to become the base of Viscount Fairfax for his family’s sojourns in York, will trace the story of the rise and fall of Georgian York on 14 April at 7.30pm at Linton Memorial Hall.
