Tuesday Table Tennis Tournament.


For the second year running the Tuesday Table Tennis Players in Langcliffe Institute have held a Doubles Tournament. This year players of all ages and abilities competed. Pairs were of mixed ability to 'level the table tennis table' and to make the games as fair as possible. The winners were Kevin McNiece and MIke Canaway. The runners up were Henry Barker and Hugh Elvidge. Regular player, John Flitcroft, commented how pleasing it was that the number of players had grown so much in so short a time.

Our Christmas  Coffee Morning 2017 

Click here to see what is on at the Institute every week.
The morning of December 2nd 2017 was a rather dismal one, until you opened the door to the Village Institute and found yourself in a bright, cheerful place, with merry voices greeting friends and excited eyes taking in the wares on display. Behind the voices was the sound of traditional Christmas songs, cheering stall holders and visitors alike. The Institute Committee ran three stalls; the cake stall, the Tombola Stall and the Christmas Cafe. Church of St John the Evangelist members ran a Christmas Craft stall, a 'Name the Donkey' stall, and the hamper Raffle.
