Past events

26th May 3 pm to 5 pm at St James’ Church – Platinum Jubilee Craft Workshop

Although there will be a few simple activities available on the 5th June, accompanied children are invited to drop-in to this workshop and make their own memorial book to complete during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend. If participants wish, the completed booklets may be displayed in the exhibition 5th-12th June. 
As well as 70 years being our head of state, the Queen also has the role of head of the Church of England. 

With thanks to Hebden Royd Town Council for providing a Queen’s Platinum Jubilee grant, St James invites the local community of Mytholm to a free celebration over the four-day extended Bank Holiday weekend to be held at St. James Church, Church Lane, Hebden Bridge HX7 6DS 

2nd to 5th June, anytime between 11 am and 3 pm - Exhibition about Mytholm during the last 70 years, charting the changes in the life of the local community since 1952 and changes during that time in areas such as fashions, toys, games, food, drinks, sweets, weddings, memories. Hebden Royd School will also be marking their postponed 150th anniversary with an exhibition of the history of the school.

5th June between 12 pm and 2 pm - A pot-luck picnic where local people bring their own picnic to eat on their own blanket or chairs either at the church or on the nearby field. For those who may not be able to provide their own picnic, there will be some “Food Share” items available. In the event of wet weather, St John’s room at the church will be used.

There will be a professionally-made cake in the shape of a 2D Coronation Crown on display until about 1 pm. On arrival at the church, people will be asked to collect a ticket for a free slice of either sponge cake, fruit cake or vegan cake in exchange for their ticket after 1 pm. The colour theme for the Platinum Jubilee is purple, which the church will be using for decorations and flowers, together with the union flag. We encourage you to wear something purple or dress in 1952 fashions.
