Parish Walk Sunday 11th Sept at 2pm

Please join us for a group walk from Bilton to Ripley and back again along the Nidderdale Greenway. We are meeting at the Bilton Lane entrance (just past the junction with Tennyson Avenue) at 2.00pm. There will be time once we reach Ripley to have a rest with an ice cream or cup of tea before our return journey and it is not a ‘hike’ so all ages and abilities are welcome. Come on your own or with a friend and enjoy an opportunity to get to know others in our churches whilst feeling virtuously healthy!
