Village Team Coach Trip – 14 April – to Stephen H Smith’s Garden Centre at Otley

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.

£10.00

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.

Village Team Christmas Lunch 2014

Christmas Lunch 250We 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:

  • See details on our website…
  • or leave a contribution with Tony at the Post Office or at May’s Shop.

Providing ingredients:

  • There is a shopping list in May’s and at the Post Office, just tick off the items you would like to supply

Helping with entertainment:

Volunteering in other ways:

  • Again there are lists with May’s and the Post Office

Heptonstall Village Team – Event Calendar

EVENT CALENDAR

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:-

  • a wonderful Christmas lunch 2013;
  • a fabulous trip to Knaresborough, in September;
  • varied speakers and entertainment at the Social & Bowling Club;
  • lots of warm and welcoming lunches at The Cross Inn.

What’s Next?

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:-

  • lots of people have enjoyed meeting up with old friends they haven’t seen in a long time;
  • guests also seem to want to mix with the younger, and/or newer residents of Heptonstall, and share stories.

So, in conclusion……

  • We are suggesting this short Winter programme to allow us time to get more ideas for our 2015 calendar of events.
