Somone asked for proof of the snow in Longridge. Here is a view of one local road on 30 November. Brrrrr!

It's Snow Joke!

It's no joke - snow fell today on Longridge. Is this the shape of things to come. Let us hope we don't have a bad winter. What ever you do, don't forget to feed the birds!

Last of the Year

Today was the last car boot sale of the year. I felt for the three hardy car booters outside in the car park. My, they must have been cold! Next year's first car boot sale takes place on January 23, 2011. See you there!

Sunrise over Longridge

Sunrise over Longbridge (23 Nov) was impressive. Not often you see the world in natural black and white!

A New Kid on the Block

Welcome to Longridge Life. Enjoy!

No 65 - Is There Anywhere Finer?

Saturday's usually involve a visit to No 65, Berry Lane. Eating out here is a real joy - fabulous food, friendly staff and a relaxing astomosphere. Try the Cheese and Pate plate with scrumptious freshly warmed bread and a tangy pickle. Bliss!


Went to Sunday's Car Boot sale at the Civic Hall. Lots on offer, but was rather shocked at the attitude of one seller. As I was looking at some military ephemera, she complained loudly about potential customers 'flicking through the paperwork'. Thanked her politely before moving on. Response? Stony-faced stare and no speech. The incident left me speechless. Not like the people I have normally meet in Longridge - smiling and friendly! Has anything similar happened to you?

Jeffrey Hill

Early November - a wonderful sunny afternoon's walk from Longridge up to Jeffrey Hill. I was amazed at the number of para-gliding enthusiasts sailing through the sky. At one time, there were nine in the sky at once.
