A RACE night will be held at St James's Church, Silsden, on Saturday, June 16.

The event, which runs from 6.30pm to 9pm, is aimed at families, and under-11s will be admitted free.

Call 01535 655842 to book tickets, which cost £5.50 including pie and pea supper.

The race night is part of the church's Project 200+ campaign project, which aims to raise £350,000 to refurbish the church hall.

The aim is for the work to be complete in time for the 200th anniversary of St James's Hall, which has been serving the community since 1820.

The building was originally home to Silsden's first school, charging students 10 pennies a week, and is now used by around 500 people a week from at least a dozen local community groups.
