The Village Team -Lunch at The Cross – Wednesday 27 August 2014
Our fourth Lunch Club event went very well last week, one resident said it was a fantastic opportunity to meet up with friends she had not seen in a while, whilst another commented on the fabulous Steak and Ale pie and chips for £4.00. Bargain!
Terry asked us to remind the village that this deal is available to ALL (young and old alike) from 12.00 til 3pm. Every Wednesday.
Next date Wed 24th September. Come along and join in, the food is good and the atmosphere is warm and inviting.
Don’t forget! …..It is only 2 weeks until our poetry morning. This will be more than just poems from ww1, with 3 local published poets on hand to read from there works as well.

Many thanks to The Heptonstall Village Team for arranging transport to those who require it.
Cake and Conversation with the Shaggy Dog Storytellers – Sunday 10 August 2014
There were over 70 people present on the day… it was pouring with rain outside… but warm and welcoming in the Bowling Club as guests were entertained with songs and music from the Shaggy Dog Storytellers. Nora 92…. stole the show with her wonderful voice and even more outrageous sense of humour.
Young and old (Paige 6 months, Phyliss Walstow 100 and 2 weeks!) enjoyed the cake and sandwiches prepared by The Heptonstall Village Team, and we all laughed at the wonderful tales told by the Shaggy Dog Storytellers.
This was one of a series of events designed to provide a varied, interesting and entertaining calender of social events for our elderly. If you want to find out more, suggest ideas for us for the future, volunteer or help us with raffle prizes look at the team’s web pages.
