Walk, walk, walk!

Saturday June 15th sees the day of our sponsored assault on the 3-Peak area of the Yorkshire Dales. After all the training comes the real thing! Burj and some others are aiming to do all three, Some are aiming at two, Rev Steve is aiming at one and hopefully has some support to help him over it, and those who are perhaps a “little over the hill” or are a bit too small for the Peaks are doing a shorter walk in the valley along with providing transport, support, food and water.

There are two main aims for this day, though I am sure some people may have more! The first is to have a lot of fun and fellowship together in beautiful surroundings. The second is to raise some money to help towards the repair of the roof.

All Hallows has a beautiful roof inside but sadly, the roof outside is not so good. Initially we need to replace the gulleys which are not deep enough to cope with the heavy rains that we have had in the last few years but they also leak, thus the frequent use of buckets around the church. Eventually we want to replace the whole roof and insulate the roof at the same time. This will cost considerably more and we are currently working on how we will raise this money.

So, if you would like to help us at All Hallows’ raise money to repair and then replace the roof do please sponsor our walk (click on the boots on the left) or give a donation (click on the drip on the left). You can sponsor us online or download, print out and use the sponsor form.

We had an amazing, sparkling day out from Saltaire, and over Baildon Moor, back to tea and the Saltaire Arts Trail festival. More walks please!

Church walk – Saturday 13th April

Just a reminder about our church walk next Saturday 13th April. We are meeting at Leeds train station at 9.45, catching the 10.08 to Huddersfield. We need to change and get the connection to Marsden which arrives at 10.42. Or you can meet us at Marsden train station at 10.45 if you would prefer to drive.

We will be taking the nice flat canal path and it is a 3 mile walk to Slaithwaite. You can go as far as you would like ( and potentially bring bikes if you are little and can’t walk very far. That doesn’t count you, Paul and Catherine ! ) Also please bring a picnic lunch, because the sun will be shining and it will be delightful to stop and share food together and cool down for a little while(!)

We will aim to be back in Marsden by around 4pm.

We’d appreciate knowing if you intend to come, so we can make sure we don’t leave you behind!

Obviously everyone is welcome! ( All Hallows’ regular or never! )

Look forward to seeing you there!
