The rest £1231.50 was retained by the groups [75p for every ticket sold] We raised £356 towards supporting the Community Centre and library so thank you again and Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

Christmas Tree Festival 2017

Kirkheaton Parish Church’s  Annual Christmas Tree Festival in early December goes from strength to strength. Now in its fifth year the festival   featured  forty five trees showing the creativity of local businesses and groups. Just click on an image to see the complete tree or to scroll through.

The Tree of Life by Kirkheaton History group celebrated the lives of some old Yettoners including the much missed Raymond Berry.
Friends of Kirkheaton Library ‘took the easy way out!!’ They just constructed half a tree from books and packages and then  ingeniously used a mirror to reflect a whole one!
A tree decorated by newcomers to the festival, Incredible Edible Brighouse, was covered with knitted fruit and vegetables and ‘Lest we forget’ was a poignant tree covered with poppies from  another newcomer St James’s Church, Flockton.

Visitors  were also treated to a variety of music over the weekend.

Mice over run Community Centre!

These delightful Christmas mice carol singers were made at a Craft workshop held at Kirkheaton Community Centre. The group meets every Saturday morning to share skills and socialise. Once a month a craft workshop is held to introduce a new craft  or skill. Why not join them in the New Year – contact Trish on 07858 223 854 for more info
