  • Preserving Our Past

    The churchyard of St Thomas a'Beckett, and its Chapel-of-Ease at Felliscliffe hold within them a wealth of local heritage via their Memorial Inscriptions and Burial Records. Why so many infant deaths, what was happening in society at the time of burial, was there a war or an illness affecting the population? How many local families are represented there and are there any well known names - or not so well known but with an interesting story attached? Is the design of the Memorial interesting in terms of its art work or the language used?This section of our website aims to list photographs of all Memorials, together with their Inscriptions and Church Records so that such questions may be answered by browsing or searching both now and in the foreseeable future - even long after some inscriptions may have faded beyond readability.

Dancing for Well-Being

Link to http://www.dancingforwellbeing.org
Come and enjoy music, fun and laughter with like-minded people at the Dancing for Well-Being group at the Memorial Hall, Hollins Lane on Wednesdays at 11.00 a.m. til 12.30 p.m.

You can dance SITTING or STANDING, you don't need a partner, you can move at the right level for you, and you don't need a good memory.

Dancing for Well-Being is ideal if you find other exercise/dance classes too much, e.g. if you have mobility/balance problems, use a walking aid or wheelchair, if you have heart or breathing problems, or conditions like arthritis, Parkinson's or dementia.

The cost is £5, which includes refreshments. For more information you can visit http://www.dancingforwellbeing.org or call Jackie Terry on 01423 531235, or email her at info@dancingforwellbeing.org
