April's Alive

You may know that around two-thirds of the 56 (yes, 56!) people who turned out to help with Saturday's 'Village Spring Clean' were Sustainable Hayfield supporters. A truly great turn-out on the first day of April. With others, we managed to collect around 40 full bags of discarded waste, some of which we were able to separate to aid local recycling. This is a great tribute to all concerned, to whom we've already extended personal thanks. It shows what can be done.....

And the month, which has begun in such impressive ways, continues in lively fashion. In the next week, for example (and not included in your recent newsletter update):
  • on Friday, April 7th , 9-11.00a.m., Kinder Kids and St Matthews Church are hosting a 'Grand Log Sale' (with supporting coffee and cake) in St Matthew's Churchyard, to raise funds for the St Matthew's Community Garden. Logs can be sawn and split on the spot if required, to fit your fireplace or wood burner;
  • on Saturday, April 8th, there'll be a commemorative opening of The Trespass Trail, a new set of installations providing information about the historic Kinder Mass Trespass in 1932, (85 years ago) supported by organised walks, talks, stalls and refreshments in The Royal Hotel. The day begins with a 11.00a.m. meet-up at The Royal, followed by a 11.15 unveiling of the 'Station site' information board and, from 11.30-1.30 a , returning via Bowden Bridge. In the event of poor weather, walks can be curtailed in favour of more events at The Royal.There'll then be a refreshment break at The Royal and, from 2.30p.m., talks, stalls and displays in the Royal function room, and;
  • on Sunday, April 9th, at 7.30p.m., Hayfield Singers, with Chamber Orchestra, will be performing in their spring concert of Baroque and Renaissance music at St Matthew's Church, with a varied repertoire including pieces by Primavera, Palestrina and Bach. Tickets are £10 (£8 restricted view) and available in advance, until Thursday, from choir members or Hayfield Pharmacy. Any remaining tickets available on the door from 7.00p.m. 
A varied line-up of events, just this weekend! We hope you'll be able to give your support, to any event that appeals.
