  1. Events in Heptonstall seem to be getting bigger and bigger and some consideration needs to be given to the people who live here. The focus seems to be about getting people from further afield to attend these events without a thought for some of the people who just want a quiet existence who live here. As for the bonfire at the club – that now seems to have a reputation for causing anarchy in the village. There were smashed beer bottles outside my front door following this ‘event’. A balance is needed between the needs of the village and the need to hold these large scale events. The village used to have small scale events for the people who lived here, now it has got out of hand. Interestingly, the village team seem to be deciding on behalf of the rest of the village what we want and need. Think about the people who have been here the longest and whether what the new influx wants is always entirely appropriate. Thank you

    • Thank you for your thoughts. I’d like to clarify that the Village Team’s aims are to provide events and social opportunities solely for the older parish residents and other members of our Heptonstall community, and that we’re not providing either large scale events or inviting in people from farther afield. We consult with our older residents/past residents on an ongoing basis about what they would like to do. We’ve discovered that it’s been very positive for a lot of our isolated elders to be able to catch up with old friends and natter about their shared past. Please look at the Team’s aims and objectives which you can find on this site under Community, or the most recent Heptonstall Newsletter also explains the reasoning behind our activities as well as reporting on our various small social events. Hopefully this will reassure you.
      Jacky Kelly, on behalf of Heptonstall Village Team.
