Heritage Sunday this weekend (14 Sep) is always special at St James’ church, Taxal, one of the most historic in the High Peak. Members of the public can drop in for a cup of tea and biscuits from 12.30 midday to 4pm, and examine the beautiful windows. Afternoon teas are also available at £3.50 each.
The Sunday Strollers, a group of walkers based at the Uniting Church in WhaleyBridge, will be supporting Heritage Sunday. David Frith will lead a group for what he calls “a gentle, three mile, two hour stroll in the Goyt Valley.”
Members of the public are invited to join them. Meet at St James at 2pm, back about 4pm in time for tea. David can be contacted on 01663 732 706.
St James is the venue for the annual children’s favourite, the Teddy Bears’ Parachute Drop from the church tower on Saturday 27 September, 2-4pm.
