Striders & Strollers
Leigh Striders and Strollers is an informal village walking group for all ages
and all walking abilities. Some walkers come along most weeks whilst others
pop along from time to time.
We meet every week on a Wednesday at 9.30am on the Green and take it
from there. Sometimes we walk from the Green but we may also drive short
distances to enjoy walks in our neighbouring villages. The walks tend to range
between 2 and 4 miles and generally we are back in the village between
10.30am and 11.30am. Some of us then go along to Coffee Stop for some
welcome refreshments (see below).
If you would like to be added to the Striders and Strollers WhatsApp Group
please contact Helen Scott on 07963 093660.

Coffee Stop
Coffee stop is on Wednesday mornings in the Genner Rooms, or outside if
the weather is warm enough, 10am to 12 noon. Come for a cup of coffee or a
tea, cake and a chat.

Heydays Film Club
The Film Club runs every 2nd Tuesday of the month, in the Genner Rooms. It is
open to anyone who enjoys a film. We open at 10 for coffee and the film starts
at 10.30. If you would like help getting there please let me know and we will do
our best to find a lift.
We look forward to seeing you in the New Year!

Safeguarding

Staying Safe & Secure
‘Safeguarding’ means the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture in all our churches. In order to achieve this, we all need to work together and be aware of our responsibilities. We will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults. We will work to prevent abuse from occurring. We will seek to protect those who are at risk of being abused and respond well to those who have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility
Here at St Mary’s Church, Leigh, we take safeguarding seriously. You will find all information and guidance booklets on our website http://stmarysleigh.org.uk
or hard copies are available in the church porch.
If you are concerned or aware of any safeguarding issues connected with the church, please contact the appointed Parish Safeguarding Officer
