COPPERS

Saltaire United Reformed Church is again appealing for coppers for the Restoration Fund. Much work is needed to maintain this magnificent building, with its prime position within the World Heritage site. Coppers can be handed in at the church on Sunday mornings or any afternoon between 2 and 4. Thank You.

WALK WAS WATERLOGGED

Shipley Support Group for Manorlands regret very much that the sponsored walk on Morecambe Bay had to be cancelled due to waterlogged and shifting sands. Any sponsorship money already collected will be very welcomely received. It has not been possible to rearrange for this year, but hopefully the sands will settle for 2008!
