“There is no true joy in a life lived closed up in the little shell of the self. When you take one step to reach out to people, when you meet with others and share their thoughts and sufferings, infinite compassion and wisdom well up within your heart. Your life is transformed.” – Daisaku Ikeda

Calendar Competition

 Thank you to everyone who bought our latest calendar. The Village Committee sold 90 copies which raised approximately £300 towards the funding of future village projects and activities.

We intend to produce a calendar for 2025, so we are asking residents to start sending in photos to be judged for inclusion. Ideally, we would like the photos to start in January and go month by month, ensuring the calendar reflects our ever changing landscape and snapshots of village life. All photos submitted should be landscape in format with a minimum file size of 2mb.

Please get snapping and send your photos to the editor of Our Badsworth Way, [email protected].
