With the generous financial support from The Heptonstall Junior and Infant School and the Friends and Parents of Heptonstall we had £200 sponsorship to spend on materials for the children’s parade on Festival Day.
We will be meeting at 10.30 am in Weavers Square and parading from 11 am headed up by the Heptonstall Pantomime Group and Drum Machine.
Jacky Kelly, from the Heptonstall Village Team will be knocking on doors along the route and seeing if some of our older generations would like a ring side seat as the parade passes through.
The Heptonstall Out of School Club have also lent their support to the event, by making a large Giant Peach to carry aloft on the day.
As a final touch, some of the kids will be carrying platters of peaches to offer to our special ‘roadside guests’ as the parade passes by.
(We have limited edition, balloons on sale on the route for £1.00 each (sponsored by Arty party of Todmorden) and this money will help us to cover the cost of activities at the bowling club
The programme that is running at the bowling club is targeted at families or our older folks.
It is an area to take the kids for a sit down and value ALL YOU CAN EAT Tapas, or sandwich platter lunch. Or a quicker cake and sarnie.
There are lots of free activities where the youngest and oldest amongst us can join in.
