Coxwold Village shop and Post Office closes its doors for the last time on March 15th 2008
Arthur Watters and his wife Valerie have called it a day after nearly 26 years running Coxwold Stores, which also means the end of the service they took over from the postmistress whose counter had been down the hill.
Arthur has reached 65, and the prospect of serving a pension to himself is not his idea of retirement. The problem is that no-one else appears to want the job.

Wings of Time
The latest exhibition at Shandy Hall is Wings of Time, which opens on Easter Sunday, March 23, at 11am, with a general invitation to the public. It will include a 15-minute film by Thomas Newton, whose work was a huge hit in last year's exhibition, A Bitter Draught, about slavery.
His innovative photographic editing techniques are particularly suitable for an exhibition whose starting point is a quotation from Sterne's Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman which reads: "Time wastes too fast: every letter I trace tells me with what rapidity Life follows my pen: the days and hours of it, more precious, my dear Jenny! than the rubies about thy neck, are flying over our heads like light clouds of a windy day, never to return more - every thing presses on - whilst thou art twisting that lock, -see!
it grows grey; and every time I kiss thy hand to bid adieu, and every absence which follows it, are preludes to that eternal separation which we are shortly to make."
For more infomation please read the full article on the Darlington and Stockton Times web site.
Admission to Wings of Time is free; Sundays only until the end of April and then every day except Saturdays until the end of June, 11am-4pm. For more details, contact the curator Patrick Wildgust on 01347-868465.
