Hula-Hop – Sunday 18 September 2016
We are running a Jumble Trail Event in Heptonstall on Monday 29th August.
There will be things on at the bowling club for families, as well as bacon sarnies, a good value lunch and bouncy castle for the kids.
Anyone wanting to get involved will be given space in the bowling club, or the chance to ‘buddy up’ with some-one along the trail.
Please contact Jan Lymer on 01422 847979 or 07772 168812 so we can match you up with someone local.
Anyone can come along and raise money for their own cause, or just get the chance to de-clutter the house!!
It is going to be a lovely way to while away a few hours over the bank holiday, and the village will be judging its best garden competition on that day too.
THE FAMOUS BURY MARKET
Bury Market remains the undisputed champion of the North so booking is essential for this first trip of this year.
World famous, Bury Market oozes charisma and atmosphere. The ambience and layout offers visitors the opportunity to seek out and visit every stall. The range of products and facilities is second to none.
Bury Market is a very large traditional market in a modern setting. It’s a unique shopping experience and great day out for all.
This is a warm and friendly bunch of dancers who would be very happy to make you feel at home. Cost is only £2.50 per person, and you are free to bring your own lunch or make a nice brew in the kitchen area.
A vintage bus will be picking up in Hebden and driving round the village all day on Saturday 26 March, delivering passengers to the family fun day events, see below for timetable.
FREE Easter Bonnet and Cap making workshops at The Heptonstall Social and Bowling Club 4-6pm Friday 4th March, 11th March, Tuesday 15th March and Friday 18th March.

The first load of teddies are washed and drying ready for the Teddy Tombola in the Bowling Club on Festival day! Come along with your ‘Wonka Winks’ and have a go at winning one!!! Beth Hardman is selling £4 bags of Wonka Winks in the Heptonstall school playground in advance of the festival for the bargain price of £2.50. The Winks can be spent in the bowling club on Festival Day, to take away the problem of giving children money.
Why not dig your way out of your home on Saturday evening and dig your way down to the Social and Bowling Club in Heptonstall?
We will be hosting our second Heptonstall Village Burns Supper Night, and this year, we have a lone piper, our stars from the village pantomime as well as, Francis Durning doing the formal address to the Haggis as well as live music from 3 men and a box.
The Village Team is planning to have up to six trips this year. We’ve been lucky enough to secure a large luxury coach which “kneels” to the kerb for easy access.
Our Spring Coach Trip is on Tuesday 14 April 2015 to Stephen H Smith’s Garden Centre at Otley, leaving Heptonstall at 11.30 am.
The garden centre has a 300 seat restaurant, indoor and outdoor plant sales area, and an Edinburgh Wool Shop.
It’s all on one level, so fully accessible.
We can also loan out wheelchairs if booked with Jane in advance.
To book, ring Jane Hartmann 01422 846675.
Other dates for your diary:
19th May Harewood House
8th July Oswaldtwistle Mills
18th September Harrogate Flower Show
We have 39 people already booked for this year’s community event, which will take place at The Social and Bowling Club on 18 December.
This is intended as a warm and welcoming Christmas event for anyone, and we will not discriminate against those who consider themselves too young to come along and join in!!
The big goal this year is to raise as much funding as we can to cover the cost of the day, and buy a really nice gift for all our guests.
Last year we sent home around 15 lunches for those who could not attend, and we know they were very much appreciated. This year we would like to do the same.
Our guests tell us, that they wish to get to know more of the newer inhabitants of Heptonstall and therefore they warmly invite you to join in, and come and have a Christmas lunch with us.
If you cannot attend, but would like to help us, we would be very grateful for your support, which could include…..
Making a donation:
Helping with entertainment:
Volunteering in other ways:
Well, what a year! Thanks to the amazing people of Heptonstall, we now have our own Village Team. Our main objective is to establish a varied, interesting and fun calendar of social events for our community elders.
So far, we have had:-
Lunch dates at The Cross Inn – Wed 19th November & Wed 10th December, 12:00 – 2:30 pm
Terry, and his team at The Cross, love hosting us, and I have to say, these are really lovely easy going events. Please let us know if you can attend, support us as a driver, or donate a raffle prize.
Fancy a trip to the panto? “Sleeping Beauty” at the Social & Bowling Club – Sat 29th November, 2:00 – 4:00pm (cost £3)
Oh no, we don’t Oh yes, we do….etc. As usual, we will arrange transport, for those who need it. We have spoken with the cast, who are delighted that some ‘old friends’ may be coming along to the Saturday Matinee.
Christmas Lunch at the Social & Bowling Club – Thurs 18 December, 12/ 12:30 pm
Can’t believe how quickly this year has gone! We are proposing a 3-course meal and surprise gift, for £10. A lot of our guests do not want a ‘free lunch’, but would rather pay a fair price for a good deal. We want to build in entertainment for this year too, but until we have organized that, we will be keeping mum!
As with any new group, we want more feedback, so we can develop and deliver ideas our community wants. What we learned this year:-
So, in conclusion……
With Kind Regards,
The Heptonstall Village Team
