Family fun day to celebrate village chapel 80th anniversary

KINGSLEY Holt Methodist Chapel is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year.

To celebrate this milestone the chapel will be staging a family fun day this Saturday (11am).

Atttractions will include a bouncy castle and soft play for children, stalls, a display of history of the chapel, and refreshments.

The fun day will be preceded by a special service in the chapel, on Churnet Valley Road, at 10.30am..

A chapel spokesman said: “We would love to see all the residents of the village, previous residents, and anyone who has used the chapel over the years.”

The following Saturday there will be a family barbecue (3.30pm-5.30pm) at Cheadle Methodist Church.

Tickets for the barbecue cost £2.50 but under-fives are free.

In 2015, Kingsley Holt made the decision to join with Cheadle and Alton.

As a result Sunday services now alternate between the Kingsley Holt and Alton chapels.
