The poppy display in the church has now been taken down. There are still poppies outside the Town Hall and anyone is invited to take some home if they wish.
Grosmont Village Advent Boxes
From 1st December
Last year you may have noticed a number of boxes appearing throughout the village in the weeks up to Christmas. This was a giant sized Advent Calendar available for the villagers and visitors to enjoy. We are planning to do this once again. Each box has a number on, and on that day before Christmas the box host will unlock the box making it available for all to see inside. The box will then remain open until Christmas. Inside the box will be something to do with the Christmas story, a few lines of explanation and a token to be collected by the first child to visit the box. That token can be exchanged for a dip into the ‘goody box’ at the Nativity Live event.
Below is a map.
Council to stop Christmas tree collection service.

Poppies in Grosmont
Wouldn’t it be nice if….?
We have all said these words at some time or other and this time it was my turn.
“Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do something to mark the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day?
One thing you can be sure of is that if you say these words in Grosmont you will not be on your own.
Around the beginning of September in Craft Club the poppy making began in earnest with a huge variety of poppies being “crafted”. Poppy making soon became an obsession with many of us and before long the wider Grosmont community were involved.
Following a very successful workshop during half term, we now have a number of poppy displays in the village which also include children’s poems.
Please come and see out efforts; in the Nave, Church and outside the Town Hall. Also, if you have someone that you wish to remember, you can add a name or photograph to the display on the right hand pillar.
