To further promote the forthcoming Cake and Conversation Event on 10 August, Jan Lymer of the Village Team has the following message…
Most of you know me well enough by now to realise my heart is in the right place when it comes to things to do with our village.!
I really enjoyed helping to raise money for the Festival, and having considered that I have completed that task to my satisfaction, have turned my ever enthusiastic spirit to setting up something for the older community of Heptonstall.
The Parish Council, has been wonderful in granting us some cash to help us get up and off the ground, and the events we have arranged so far have been much appreciated by those who attended.
In particular, those residents in Elphin Court, Mytholm Meadows and Mytholm court, who were moved down to Hebden when the old folks home in Heptonstall was closed down are really enjoying whizzing back up to The Cross and The Bowling Club, and meeting up with old friends and making some new ones.
What they would really like to do too, is to mix with the younger generations, and share stories from when they used to live up here. Hence this Sundays Cake And Conversation event 1.30, at the bowling club.
Phyliss Walstow, (100) pictured left, will be sitting by the door, ready to great you when you come (anyone fancying surprising her with a birthday card, would be most welcome!)
If you can’t attend, but would like to support us, we would be grateful for raffle prizes.
It would be great if it was a knockout event for families and the older generation. Could you please let me know if, you think you will be able to come so we can butter enough bread for sarnies!
PS – Any raffle prizes, that could be dropped with Tony at the Post Office or to May’s shop would be appreciated! “
