Craven Cravendale and Milk

Well to me filtered milk is not milk and Cravendale is not a Dale. But Branders can’t be choosers – Oh yes they can and I suppose this is a canny name from Arla Foods the Leeds based dairy food specialists. Filtered milk has had ‘the bits taken out’ so is it still milk or white water? Then it is pasturised and bottled in an opaque container.  Generically, this type of product is known as Extended Lifespan (ESL) milk. Arla the owners of Cravendale are too craven to go the whole 9 yards and create UHT an even longer life milk.

Only thing is sure it is better than the old Sterilized milk that came in tall crown Stoppered bottles or that cloudy plasticated creamer you get in little plastic pots.

Craven District

The Craven Museum and the castle above in Skipton are well worth a visit followed by a cup of tea in the Organic cafe with real milk.
Craven District encompasses an area twice the size of Singapore and half the size of Luxembourg yet is one of the most sparsely populated areas in England to say nothing of being one of the most beautiful. One third of the Craven district is within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Craven District Council seems to be appropriate for the rural community it serves with Environmental, Planning and Leisure services for Skipton, Settle, Bentham and Ingleton amongst others. Some Council services are provided by North Yorkshire County Council.
The Craven Herald and Pioneer is the useful local media with a wide ranging whats on events guide from Belly Dancing classes at Craven College to Boxersise and Yoga.

Hull Trucks New Talented Playwright Nick Lane

Nick Lane has been directing the Christmas Shows at Hull Truck Theatre in both the old and new premises for over 10 years. Recently Nick has continued to develop scripts after his autobiographic, comedy success with ‘My Favourite Summer’.
Nick Lane’s second major comedy ‘Me and Me Dad’   still retains the autobiographical context; ‘When Andy Green’s mum dies, Andy does the decent thing – he takes a month off work and moves back home with his dad to teach him how to cook. Fighting memories – and occasionally each other – and risking the sanity of friends and neighbours, not to mention Andy’s new girlfriend, the pair boil pans, set grills on fire and worse in an attempt to prevent a diet of pickled beetroot and jam sandwiches. Can their relationship survive? Or is this one kitchen nightmare even Gordon Ramsay couldn’t fix?’ Read more in the Yorkshire Post

Nick Lane complete guide to works produced in and around Yorkshire.

 

Get out to your local theatre more often. The cost is very reasonable compared to a football match or night out at your local restaurant and it beats the telly hands down. In fact why not make a weekend trip to a new venue to see something a bit different like ‘Me and Me Dad’
