Holmbridge Welcomes Le Tour!
Holmbridge festivities for Le Tour start with bell ringing at 8.20pm as part of the county wide “big ring” for Le Tour – a welcome from all across the county.
All are welcome – bring a bell and a bike!
St David’s Church Holmbridge
We invite everyone to come in and find some sacred space and a moment of quiet from the chaos outside.
Visit the labyrinth in the church – a spiritual journey, and representing the circle (or even cycle!) of life. Explore the stations around the church – gaze on the images, read, touch, smell, sit and reflect, seek God. Christians have been using the labyrinth since the 4th century, most notably in the great mediaeval churches of Europe, the last remaining one is at Chartres, France.
You are welcome to just sit and relax, to pray, to light a candle for a loved one
Le Tour comes to the Artistic Holme Valley Competition – we had over 500 entries from Upper Holme Valley schoolchildren on a Tour de France theme – paintings, pastels, colouring and even some with ‘pyramid’ poems. Prizewinning bicycles will also be displayed on the Le Tour Bend Mural on the stage in the Parish Hall.
The Prize Winning Bicycles will be displayed on the St David’s Le Tour Bend Mural in the Parish Hall
