  • Walk the Wheel celebrates Beltane

    Saturday 4th May, 7:00pm – 9:00pm

    Hadfield Community Room, Railway Street, Hadfield, SK13 2AA

    Come and experience the bright, blooming energies of spring in full swing with an evening of creative sharing with Walk the Wheel.

    The time of preparation, planning, and persevering is over. Warmth is returning to the land and with it new life is bursting forth.

    Put aside dark thoughts and ponderings and join us celebrate this joyful time of year!

    Enthusiasm, excitement, and enjoyment are key at the Celtic fire festival of Beltane.

    As the land begins to display its beauty and fertility – in flower, leaf, and lamb – so we acknowledge our own passions and determination, weaving them together to create action and adventure in the summer season ahead.

    This is a participatory event; attendees are encouraged to bring their own favourite seasonal poems/stories/art/ideas to share and enjoy with the group.

    A donation of £2.50 towards room hire would be very gratefully received. Refreshments will be provided.

  • Tottington Tidy Up

    Can you spare some time for a good cause?

    Tottington (Bury) is having a tidy up on Sunday 19th May. We’ll be concentrating on The Kirklees Trail. If anyone can help we will meet at the bottom (Kirklees Trail) end of Laurel Street in Tottington at 10am. Rubbish sacks will be provided and you can borrow gloves and litter pickers.

    If anyone in the area is not available please consider having a litter pick outside your house or business. We can try to get everywhere tidy then!

    You can follow our progress on Twitter @TottingtonLife #tidytotty. Why not tweet us your #tidytotty photos?
