There’s lots going off in Hayfield this Saturday. Here’s the press release that John Harvey has sent me:-
Eventful day in Hayfield: Saturday 5th April
Three community groups in Hayfield have independently organised visitor entertainment events for Saturday 5th April.
In the morning, Hayfield Primary School are hosting a “Chicken Run” fell racing program. There are races for all ages; 5K & 9.5K for adults, registration from 9.30am, races from 10am, adults 11am. There will also be prizes, cakes, Easter egg hunts and a clothing sale.
The Kinder Visitor Centre Group are holding their first pop-up Art sales and Exhibition in the Village Hall, featuring paintings of Kinder and the Hayfield landscape, by six different local artists. This goes on from 10am to 4pm. There will also be a Kinder Trespass display area, and sales of cards, prints, posters and walks booklets, together with all day refreshments – and admission is free.
Handmade Hayfield are holding the latest of their monthly pop-up craft sales, from 10am to 3pm in St Matthews Hall, adjoining the church in the village centre. There will also be optional workshops, demonstrations of craft skills, and refreshments.
So if any or all of these appeal, Saturday 5th April is a good day to visit the “Gateway to Kinder”, one of the Peak District’s most characterful villages.
HVAFF is organised and run by volunteers and all proceeds go to development of facilities at Hope Valley College. Proceeds of the Andy Cave lecture will be split with Bamford Primary School.
This GPS trace just goes to show that, however experienced you are, you can still get lost on Kinder. Who knew there were two trig points so close together on Kinder Low!!
