Dan continued his Jubilee celebrations at the Mendham and Withersdale Village Hall, where he was delighted to present prizes to winners of the royal-themed fancy dress competition from the Mendham and Withersdale Youth Club. The youngsters dressed as kings, queens, princes, princesses or in the traditional red, white and blue of the Union flag, before the winners were handed Jubilee gifts by Dan.
The youth club takes place at the village most Friday evenings, and offers a range of activities for local youngsters to take part in. The club has continued to grow in popularity, and was provided with a boost last month after the go-ahead was given to build a much-needed multi-use games area to the rear of the village hall, which will benefit the whole community. Over £60,000 was raised by the village hall committee to fund the multi-use games area, which will consist of a full-size floodlit tennis court with basketball, netball and football lines. The project was led by Tracey Tompkins, and Dan would like to thank her, along with all the members of the Village Hall Committee, for their continuing hard work.
