Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

EE bah gum – staff at a lo­cal build­ing so­ci­ety branch will be bring­ing a lit­tle bit of York­shire into Buck­ing­hamshire this week­end.

Staff at Skip­ton Build­ing So­ci­ety’s Lit­tle Chal­font branch will be cel­e­brat­ing York­shire Day on Satur­day by hand­ing out goodie bags and white roses to mem­bers of the public near their premises in Nightin­gales Cor­ner.

This fol­lows last year’s suc­cess when the branch first marked York­shire Day in hon­our of the so­ci­ety’s roots in the White Rose county, although there are 98 Skip­ton branches across the UK.

Katie-Jayne Cole, man­ager at the so­ci­ety’s Lit­tle Chal­font branch said: “Last year we ven­tured into the com­mu­nity and gave away goodie bags and beau­ti­ful white roses.

“We also had some fun in branch shar­ing York­shire pud­dings, bal­loons and goodie bags and dec­o­rated the branch with white rib­bons.

“The re­ac­tion was fan­tas­tic and warmly wel­comed by peo­ple just pass­ing by.

“We are now look­ing for­ward to this year’s cel­e­bra­tion.”
