WESTHOUSES: Sponsored walkers and riders welcomed at Methodist Church

Westhouses Methodist 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.

Visitors to the Westhouses church were able to see the display of toiletries, donated at the previous week’s harvest festival, to be given to a charity to help people in Romania.
