Torchlight Procession – Cancelled

Unfortunately it has been necessary to cancel the Batley Torchlight Procession this year.  St. Mary’s Church has being undergoing extensive repairs to the roof and in planning the work it was hoped that the scaffolding would be removed and the work completed before the Torchlight was due to take place on Monday 2nd October.  Following discussions with Bishop Marcus it was agreed in the interests of safety that the procession be cancelled for this year only.
