Due to Victoria Hall, Queensbury being closed due to current weather conditions, the History Society meeting to be held there at 2.00 pm on Friday 2nd March has unfortunately been cancelled.
Women’s world day of prayer due to be held on the evening of Friday 2nd March at St Theresa’s however due to the current weather conditions a decision has been made to postpone it till 16th March.
Earlier this month Children from Foxhill School teamed up with staff from Tesco and the Council Wardens and did a litter pick around the Traffic Lights in the village. This was in response to a letter sent by a year 2 pupil at Foxhill Primary School who was not happy about the amount of litter being dropped in and around the village.
Members of the Queensbury Walking Groups are departing Queensbury on Saturday 25th February and travelling to Helwith Bridge. They will then walk up the gentle slopes of Penyghent, then reaching the steep ascent to the summit, a bit of a scramble to the top. Then down the other side to Hull Pot, Horton in Ribblesdale and a walk along the banks of the Ribble back to Helwith Bridge.
Due to the prevailing weather conditions, 59 mph winds on the summit of Penyghent and safety concerns the walk has been amended. We are now walking the Silsden area.
Penyghent will be walked perhaps next month.
Queensbury Walking Groups are having a day out on the Rochdale canal on Saturday 29th April 2017. We are hiring a narrow boat and will cruise from Hebden Bridge in the direction of Todmorden, we do not expect to arrive there due to time constraints. As usual cooking facilities are available on the boat, so we will be having delicious bacon, egg and other items in a butty cooked by the galley crew. On the return we may just have time to moor outside the Stubbing Wharfe pub for a swift one before returning the boat.
We all take turns at being the captain, steering the boat, navigating the locks and instructing the others to safely work the locks.
