WELCOME BACK

It has been sometime since our last meeting.  Hopefully you are all well and have managed to keep yourselves out of harm’s way.

You will be pleased to hear that your Committee has been working tirelessly over the last few months to get everything in place  to enable our monthly meetings to recommence  –  and we’ve done it! 

Our monthly meetings will start again on Wednesday 8th September 2021 at the Elland Working Men’s Club, South Lane, Elland at 7.15 pm.

Our first speaker of the 2021/22 Winter session will be Mr James Lyte on The Story of Abide with Me by Henry Francis Lyte.  

We look forward to welcoming old and new members to our meeting in September.

Everyone who is attending any meetings needs to be mindful of others. If you are feeling unwell it would be preferable if you remain at home.

Let’s all stay safe and look after each other.

See you in September.

We start our walk on Elland Lane opposite the Spring Gardens public house.

Elland Lane is part of a very old road which in 1740/1741 became a turnpike road from Elland to Leeds.  Even further back in 1553 John Hanson of Woodhouse did “give and bequeste to the mendinge of one way liege betwixt the Nether Edge to one close called Oldearthe, which way is called the Long Doglayne, 6s/8d”.
