The fellowship is open to men of any age, not just members of the church. The programmes are very varied and interesting, consisting of talks, demonstrations and outings, all undertaken in a spirit of fellowship and fun! The current programme is listed below.

For the final meeting of the season before our Summer break, Monday 9 June, 12 men met in the church car park at 6:45pm and set off in 4 cars to the Beacon Hill Arboretum car park.  Those who had been there before told us that the paths were all gravelled, so those of us that had taken walking boots to change into just left them in the cars.  The weather on the previous few days had been wet, and even on that particular Monday we had had rain, and the sky was laden with dark clouds as we walked around the paths through the trees.  Unfortunately the site has become rather neglected.  Many of the signs indicating the specific types of tree were broken or unreadable and there were no descriptions to say how trees differed from their more common cousins.  I thought this was a missed educational opportunity.  After the walk around the planting of our native trees we went back towards the car park, past the newly planted raised wild-flower bed (not much plant life visible in that yet) and past the new children’s play area with its huge climbing frame.  Through to the opposite side of the car park where we could see the colourful rhododendrons, and into what was labelled The Labyrinth, a raised board walk through interwoven rhododendron trees which required us to duck well down at various points.  Just as the end of this circular walk was in sight, some rain began to fall, so back into the cars for the short drive to the Curzon Arms in Woodhouse Eaves.  


It was still a very warm evening so we all took our drinks to tables underneath a huge umbrella which kept us dry during the frequent showers and enjoyed a good time of informal chat and fellowship together. See the September to December 2014 programme below.













The photos alongside were taken after completing the Labyrinth Walk.

No, they are not identical - it’s a matter of spotting the difference!
