To complete a fantastic year of events and our Heritage Lottery Project we held our final event on the 2nd December 2017, with our fabulous “Mrs Ibbitts’ Don’t Waste Bread” open day.  Our thanks go to Mr  & Mrs John Burthom who baked a very authentic brown loaf from a 1917 recipe.  It went down really well and there was none left at the end of the day!! Thanks also to Gordon Riggs Garden Centre of Todmorden who donated a spectacular Christmas tree to enhance our decorations.We held a Christmas card competition for the children and had a steady stream of young visitors during the day.  We also held our usual Christmas raffle and tombola, both of these raising the NAT’s funds considerably
