ROOKHOW NEWS AND EVENTS
A busy Summer at Rookhow with lots of bunkbarn guests, regular volunteer work parties and ongoing renovation work. Thanks to a grant from Historic England, the chimney has been rebuilt and more of the stone floors in the Meeting House have been restored. We are awaiting planning permission for the installation of an air source heat pump and adapting the side entrance to be wheelchair accessible, with accessible toilet facilities. We have funded several mental health groups to stay at Rookhow and enjoy the woodland. Further groups are being invited to apply (next deadline 1st October).
Following the success of our online activities during Covid, we are planning a few in person events before we close the Meeting House in mid-November for the next stage of renovation work.

Wednesday 6th-Friday 8th October Cop 26 Pilgrimage Retreat at Rookhow (residential), with Monthly Meeting for Worship on the Wednesday evening 7.30pm to which all local people are welcome.
