Work has started on making a new community woodland and new paths on the land which used to be the village tip. Local resident Matt Taylor has been behind the work on behalf of the Council.
There will be a network of new paths, wildflower verges, woodland planting and the fencing has been replaced. Clearance work of the old overgrowth has revealed a lovely new view point, with a vista down into Hebden Bridge and a new gate to provide access to the tops of the quarry.
This project brings a new lease of life into the old tip, will enhance the amenity and biodiversity of the area without compromising public access to this well used dog walking area.
St Thomas’ Church has a new Sunday School run by retired teacher Val Perry, who organised a successful crib service before Christmas.
Children aged four to 11 are welcome to attend the class, which starts at 9.15am. They hear stories and take part in activities at the back of the church, before joining the rest of the congregation for a blessing at the end of the service.
This week, the children heard about Jesus healing the lepers, then drew pictures about being thankful for our blessings.
The class will be held every Sunday except the first Sunday in each month, which is an all-age service suitable for children.
If anyone would like to get involved in helping to run the class, they are welcome to get in touch with vicar Howard Pask.
HeLP’s next meeting is on Monday 7 April 2014 at 8.00 pm in the White Lion.
The next churchyard clear-up is on Saturday 12 April 2014 between 11.00 am and 1.00 pm. Bring tools if possible.
