FESTIVE cheer is on the cards for Cleckheaton folk as a church has joined forces with school pupils and Scouts to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. For the first time, Whitechapel Church has joined with Whitechapel Primary School and the 14th Spen Valley Scouts to produce the Christmas cards, which will be delivered by the Scouts.
The Rev Brunel James said: “This initiative is a great example of local people working together to create a sense of community at Christmas time. I would like to thank the Scouts and school for taking part”.
The greeting cards also provide details about church service times, information about the Friends of Whitechapel Church historical group and community contact details. Group Scout leader Neil Smith said: “This will be a fun activity and we are happy to help”.
