John S Murray, 1931 – 2020

It is with deep regret that we announce the death on May 20th of one of our long serving members, John Murray. John provided talks and audio visual advice for many years and latterly although in failing health was a fully engaged member of the society.  A fitting tribute can be found on the Village Trust website.


A letter from our Chairman Ken Jenkin,

Dear member
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 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, some of our books have now been digitised and can be read online. Look for the “Out of print books” link.

Stay safe, stay well.
