Annual ‘Ride and Stride’ Day - Saturday, 9th September, 2017.

                                                    We at the HCCPT would like to thank all the Cheshire churches who participated in last year’s Ride and Stride, either by opening your church or by sponsoring and providing ‘riders and striders’. The work of the Trust, to provide funds for churches struggling to meet repair and restoration costs, would not be possible without your support and we would like you to know how greatly appreciated that is. We know that some churches have had a large number of visitors on the day, in spite of the heavy showers across the county, but against that there were others who had none. To them we say a special ‘Thank You’ as you still took part and although you may have been the only one in a Deanery, making it impossible for the ‘ride and striders’ to add you to a circuit, at least you were included in the publicity. When allocating grants, priority is always given to those who have supported the event and a grant from the HCCPT can often unlock a further, more substantial grant, from the National Historic Church Trust.

Details of the 2018 event and updated documents will appear here in due course.


                                                     Kindest Regards,


                                          John Headon,      Ride and Stride co-ordinator.
