Ride & Stride: 13th September, 10.00am – 6.00pm

Staffordshire Historic Churches Trust
All Saints’ will again be taking part in this event and the church will be open to welcome sponsored cyclists and walkers. As in recent years the day will coincide with Heritage Open Days when many buildings of historic interest will be open in the local area.
Sponsor forms and lists of participating churches are available from Rosemary Lobban if you want to ride or stride this year. Half of the sponsor money goes to the SHCT and half to the church and chapel of your choice. We have been very grateful to the Trust for grants towards restoration in the past.
Helpers are also needed on the day to revive cyclists and walkers with refreshments when they visit. A list will be available at the back of the church towards the end of August for volunteers to sign. Contact Rosemary Lobban on 750547 for further details.

Are you keen to grow your own fruit, veg and flowers but don’t have the space at home? Why not consider renting an allotment from Madeley Parish Council in Furnace Lane? The rates are very reasonable. For further details please contact Jan Simpson Parish Clerk on 07563660298 or e-mail parish.clerk@madeley.staffslc.gov.uk
