On Saturday 14th September, Honley Civic Society held a tour of Honley graveyard with a description of some (but not all) of the more notable village people buried there.

Almost 60 people met at Honley Graveyard at Green Cliff and enjoyed a talk and tour of the prominent graves. Thank you all for coming!


Two awards were made this year for outstanding contribution to the community in Honley. The presentations were made by Ken Jenkin, HCS  chairman, on Thursday evening 9th May.

Yorkshire Traction Honley Band have made a significant contribution to village life through their playing at so many local events.

Friends of Honley for the hard work in clearing and maintaining the graveyard.

We regret to report that Margaret Allison, a founder member and past treasurer of Honley Civic Society has passed away. We send out sincere condolences to her daughter and son.
