Supporters of the Marie Curie charity, the Bradford Hospice and going on a trek later this year to Nepal. In doing so they will raise thousands of pounds for this well deserving cause.
As part of their training they decided to ascend Ben Nevis the highest peak in the UK. Nine people attended this event and all successfully completed the walk which is over 10 miles long and has a climb of 4,587 feet.
This is a hard walk, the path surface is composed of uneven rock and boulder. Very difficult to negotiate especially on the way down. Our walk members had slips but nothing serious, unlike others we saw with cuts to a face and a man with a broken leg. He had to be air lifted by helicopter to hospital.
On this day the annual Ben Nevis Race took place. What an amazing sight to see the fell runners go at such a fast speed, both up and down the mountain, This year Finlay Wild won the race with an amazing time of 1 hour 32 minutes and 5 seconds, putting us all in our, not so fit places.
Black Dyke Mill history group and Queensbury youth club are doing a project which involves the history of people who worked at the mill.
The event will take place from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm on the 12th of August at Victoria Hall.
This is an open day for people who worked in the mill to come down and record their stories. Young people from the youth club will be recording people’s voices and putting them on a disc. Hopefully these recordings will become part of the the display at black Dyke Mill history group in the future.
Why not attend with your friends, have a coffee, or tea and a biscuit. Treat it like a coffee morning/afternoon. Chat amongst yourselves to recover the old memories of the mill. Then share these memories with the youngster’s, they will record them for posterity.
With our journey to the Drum Corps Europe (official) in September we now are fundraising for the trip.
We now have a text & donate service and it would be excellent if you can check it’s working for me 👍
Text dcefuel (no spaces) to 70085, and then the donation, eg…
