The swinging Sixties

A selection of pictures from the Haworth 1960's weekend!

Anyone want a hot dog?

Flowers for your hair...

...if you have any! A friend of mine from way back then.

Yes we had passion.

What happened to Nancy Sinatra?

Yeah, yeah, yeah!!!

Is it Christine Keeler?


Get back to Brighton!

World Cup Willy. We need him now.

He's behind you!

I was there! Still am.

There's a guy comes in our cake shop says he's Elvis.


Tea, cakes and joss sticks.

Is that a hair guitar?

Well done to all these brave people, and animals, who took us back in time!

The Coffee House

Paid my first visit to No 10 The Coffee House today and I cannot praise it enough. What a joy to taste real coffee, delicious cake and be made genuinely welcome.
I'm a coffee lover and this is the first time I have tasted the continental flavour of coffee, which I love, in my own country.
Well done Claire. I'll be back.....often.

Jenny Agutter's visit to the village

Jenny Agutter, star of The Railway Children, will be in the village lending her support to the Cystic Fibrosis Fun Day and sponsored walk on Sunday June 27th.
It will be particularly poignant for everyone, and Jenny, to see her back in Haworth during the fortieth anniversary year of the making of the classic film.
Here's a happy memory from last year!

Drunken children

I walked down Main Street at 6pm today and was confronted by around 10 kids, all well under 18, swinging bottles, and a few were obviously drunk.
Various passers by commented on it but when is someone going to do something about it? Who is selling them the stuff, and where are the police?
