Horbury Churches Together invites you to a free family fun day on Saturday 28th May 2022, 2-4:30pm at Horbury Academy Field.
Great north run success!
This year was even more special after having last years run cancelled and it marking the 40th anniversary of the event!
We had 9 fantastic participants this year running to raise money for the youth project and show their support and they did great!
Good bye kerry!
Kerry has been with the project for 4 and a half years and I'm sure many of you have experienced the amazing impact she has had and the support she has been able to offer so many people! We are so sad to see her go but wish her all the best as she goes forward in her career. She hasn't gone too far so I'm sure many of you will still get to see and talk to her from time to time!
Bye Kerry and THANK YOU!!!

In our 2nd magazine edition we asked you all to submit a photo of something around lock down. Thank you so much to everyone who entered they were fantastic!
We loved the story that each photo told.
'This is Mille. Me and Millie have been on a wild ride together whilst in lockdown. Millie has kind of become my best friend. We go on long walks and short walks every day , capturing memories to treasure because it won't be long and she will be gone. Let’s not think about that and just appreciate how amazing she’s is.
