Hebden Bridge

A new ECC local group is starting in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire

View of Hebden Bridge

Hebden Bridge is sometimes dubbed the ‘gay capital of the north’, and is well known for its tolerant and gay-friendly atmosphere. Conveniently situated on good rail links between Manchester and Leeds, it is increasingly popular with all kinds of alternative people and has a growing LGBTQ+ population.

ECC members and other men living in Hebden Bridge and the Calder Valley have recently started a local group meeting monthly, and we welcome men from across the North of England. It's an activity-based group, rather than a regular heart circle. Activities can be anything the members wish to offer, as on a traditional gay men's week. Examples might include games, meditations, dancing, cooking, art and creativity, sharing of favourite readings on a theme, or discussion topics. In the summer, we hope to meet outdoors for a walk or a picnic.

The next meeting is on Saturday 9th December 2017, at Salem Mill Community Centre, Salem Street, HX7 6HB (next to the Co-op). Arrive from 1pm for informal social and refreshment, for a prompt start at 2pm. A small donation to cover the room hire is much appreciated.
