ALFRETON: Wesley church welcomes Ride and Stride participants

Ride and stride

Alfreton Wesley Church was open throughout the day on Saturday to welcome walkers and cyclists taking part in the annual Ride and Stride event organised by the Derbyshire Churches and Chapels Preservation Trust.

Sponsored walkers and riders work out their own route, calling in at as many churches in the area as possible, and funds raised are divided between the trust and the walker or cyclist’’s own church.

The Wesley church secretary Eleanor Robinson, a seasoned cyclist, covered 53 miles and visited 31 churches.
