Heptonstall Village Team – Heptonstall Family Day – Easter weekend 2016

Heptonstall Family Day – Easter weekend 2016

Saturday March 26th – the day after Pace Egg – will be our first Heptonstall Family Day!

This is being planned and organised across the generations and is so far going to include:

  • a giant egg rolling competition from the school to Weavers Square
  • opportunity for you to have your photo taken on a reproduction of the see-saw shot from the Alice Longstaff Collection (courtesy of the After Alice Photographic Group)
  • an Easter Bonnet and Cap parade
  • fun and games for all at The Heptonstall Social and Bowling Club
  • maypole dancing
  • a vintage bus trundling from venue to venue in Heptonstall so that you can ride in comfort to see everything with ease

This event is being sponsored by Heptonstall Junior and Infant School, Calderdale Events and Festivals Fund, Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, local businesses and private donations.

Heptonstall Village Team – The Gift of Giving

The Gift of Giving

This very special Christmas Carol concert, working together with school, will take place in St Thomas’ Church on Thursday 17th December at 9.30 am.

This event is open to all, and beforehand there will be a series of singing workshops and rehearsals at the Bowling Club, as well as a gift making workshop, where our younger children will make small gifts to hand to our older generations around the village and at the concert on the day.

Heptonstall Village Team – New Format Art Club: Changing Faces

New Format Art Club: Changing Faces

We are pleased to announce a new collaboration with Heptonstall Junior and Infant School – our Art Classes will now involve both the younger and older generations of Heptonstall and beyond. A regular class will be held with the children at the school, with an alternating class being held in Mytholm Meadows, where our younger artists will come down to paint and craft alongside our older folks.

This will be a regular class, culminating in an art exhibition and film show at The Heptonstall Bowling and Social Club next year. Nick Wilding will be filming some of the process as well as showing his film of 8 year olds interviewing 80 year olds that he filmed in 2000.

If you would like more information or to get involved, contact Pauline Walker at Mytholm Meadows, on 01422 843194

Heptonstall Village Team – New Lunch Club

The Heptonstall Village Team and members of St Thomas’ Church have collaborated to apply for funding to kit out the new kitchen with catering equipment. This means that shortly after Christmas we’ll have another place to hold lunch club events for our older generations, as well as providing catering facilities to support other church events.

Our Lunch Clubs at The Towngate Tea Rooms and The Shoulder of Mutton in Mytholmroyd continue to prove popular, though we will be looking to see if the days need to be adjusted in the New Year.

These are currently the second Wednesday in the month for Towngate Tea Rooms (3pm) and the last Wednesday in the month for The Shoulder of Mutton in Mytholmroyd (12pm).
