BETTER HONLEY AWARD 2020

This year’s award has been given to Carol Roberts for her energy and drive in the celebration of Peace Day 1919. Honley Remembers was a super weekend in July 2019  in which the whole village took part. There is now a lasting legacy of village life in WW1.


A letter from our Chairman Ken Jenkin,

Dear member
As we will not be meeting for a Civic Society speaker meeting this month, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all well in these strange times and hope that are coping with the issues of isolation and social distancing.
There is a group of volunteers in the Holme Valley, contactable either by telephoning 01484 212056 or by sending an email to support@holmevalleymutualaid.co.uk; they are willing and able to help with shopping, collection of prescriptions, dog walking and so on, should you need this kind of support.
Our website, www.honleycivicsociety.co.uk , currently states that speaker meetings and joint walks with Trinity Church are cancelled. As soon as this changes, we will notify you and any information will be posted on the website.
If you are tired of watching the news and are running out of reading matter, three of our books have now been digitised and can be read online. Look for the “Out of print books” link.
If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me via email to honleycivicsociety@outlook.com.
Stay safe, stay well.
Kind regards,

Ken
