A reet good do - and a reet Royd do! - is what’s planned for Sunday, September 22, in Mytholmroyd.
Running between noon and 4pm, A Reet Royd Do is centred around the Rochdale Canal towpath as it runs through the centre of Mytholmroyd, says one of the organisers, Jade Smith.
Various sites will be the scene for entertainment, all of them schemes funded by Pennine Prospects through its Leader programme.
The programme has seen the Hawk Sculpture placed at Hawksclough, the development of the Redacre growing project, an upgrade of the canal towpath between Midgley Road and Redacre bridge, and one of Pennine Project’s Stanza Stones will be placed at Mytholmroyd Memorial Gardens.
“We will have live hawks and owls at the sculpture at Hawksclough, while there will be boat rides along that section of the Rochdale Canal.
“At Redacre there will be a small market, a fire juggler and Mayor of Hebden Roud Coun Karl Boggis will open the wattle and daub roundhouse there at 2.45pm,” said Jade.
The Dusty Miller on Burnley Road will be the venue for an arts market while the memorial garden will see poets reading from their work.
At 1.30pm Mytholmroyd Walkers Action will lead a guided walk for children up through Redacre Wood and back via the hawks and owls at Redacre.
There will also be bulb planting along the canal towpath.
“We’re also hoping to have brass band music at the Dusty Miller and we’re planning to launch our inaugural ‘Boggart Trail’ where people will be able to spot and bag a little boggart!” she said.
