Alton Webteam: August 2017
It's not too late . . . .
. . . . to take part in the Ride and Stride this year! Some folk walk, some cycle, some even run or travel on horseback — but for everyone it's an opportunity to raise some money while spending a day visiting interesting church buildings in our area.
Any money raised through sponsorship is split 50/50 between the Hampshire and the Islands Historic Churches Trust (whose event this is) and a church of your choice — hopefully Alton Methodist!
It's on Saturday 9th September. Choose which churches you will visit, how you will travel, and who you might wish to come with you; then choose your own pace — and enjoy the day!
For full details, please speak to me as soon as you can. I do hope that you'll want to take part!
