FILM: Barbie, the Movie, is coming to Nidderdale. It will be shown on the big screen at Darley Memorial Hall on Thursday, March 28 (that’s the day before Good Friday). Doors open at 6.45pm and there will be a short film of local interest before Barbie starts at 7.15pm. You don’t need to book in advance, just turn up and pay at the door (£5 adults, £2 children). Refreshments will be on sale (ice cream, popcorn etc.) and the bar will be open. And as a special bonus, everybody who comes dressed in pink will receive a small treat to set them up for the evening. Come and enjoy the fun.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS: On Good Friday, March 29 at 11am, the Church In The Dale walk together from the steps of St Cuthbert’s Church, Pateley Bridge through to the High Street. They do this to remember that Jesus had to carry his cross publicly through the streets of Jerusalem. It is a public statement of their faith, and a retelling of the crucifixion story. They stop outside various sites for readings and to sing hymns with the Dacre and Summerbridge Silver Band.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS: From Palm Sunday (March 24) to Easter Monday (April 1) in Holy Trinity Church, Dacre Banks. There will be up 16 images of Jesus – “Stations of the Cross” – each accompanied by a short poem or reflection. The idea being you can come into church and in your own time follow the story of Jesus’ last hours. This can be a very calming and moving experience as you enter imaginatively into the story. Why not come in and take some time to reflect – either throughout the week or all on one occasion?
