This year, social events in the Parish of Whixley with Green Hammerton have intensified as we are now supporting the Whixley Heritage Project, which is focusing on the repairing of our two windows on either side of the chancel steps. This has to be carried out as a matter of urgency, as weather and age have both had an adverse effect on these two important pieces of Victorian art and workmanship. So, advance notice to all; mark your dates and more detailed information and any other events will be available nearer each date:
Sunday April 28th – 9.00am – 2.00pm
