On a wonderfully sunny afternoon, our community of bakers descended on Holywell Green and Stainland Church Hall for the 4th Holywell Green Village Bake-off.
There were some wonderful bakes on display, especially from our contingent of junior bakers.
Thanks must go out to our Judges Philippa Atkin and Jackie Squires from Sowood WI and Pat Hand from Bev's Baps in West Vale.

Share Issue Update...
It was only a matter of weeks after launching our unique share issue that Mr Gale, the owner of the Holywell Inn, submitted his latest planning application, which moved our focus from promoting the share issue to fighting a planning application that should never have been allowed to be considered.
So, now we have that obstacle out of the way, we can get back to business, and boy are we in better shape then we were 6 months ago.
Without the promotion it deserves, the share issue has still been steadily growing, providing a regular income to the campaign. These funds are sitting in the Holywell Community Pub Share Issue bank account, and will only be used when we are in a position to purchase and renovate the building.
This regular income is such a positive message to give to funding bodies, it shows that we have a core of people committed to the venture, and have the necessary funds to service finance in the short term until the Holywell Inn is finally re-opened.
But ideally, we need more investors. The more investors we have the more attractive our proposition looks to financial institutions.
So here is a summary of the Share Issue:
To become a member is very simple just download the Share Issue Prospectus HERE and read fully. Complete the standing order mandate and return it to your bank. And that's it.
