Why not blow away your Christmas cobwebs by joining Dr Steve Sherlock on an Archaeology Walk at Saturday 2 January (weather permitting)? Meet at Loftus Market Place at 11am, we will head up to the Street House sites. Exact route and duration of walk dependent on weather and terrain conditions, lilkely to be about 4 miles, 3 hours.
Please wear stout footwear and weather-appropriate clothing, we recommend you bring a drink and a snack.
This walk will be supported by members of the Loftus ACCORD Walking Group, who had Loftus designated as a Walkers are Welcome town in 2015.
A congregation of nearly 60 joined Cllr Mike Hodgson, Mayor of Loftus, and members of Loftus Town Council for the (almost) annual Civic Carol Service, held this year in St Leonard’s Church, Loftus.
Loftus Town Council was honoured to provide a brief refreshment stop for the Most Reverend and Right Honourable Dr John Sentamu at Loftus Town Hall on Tuesday 8 December 2015. Archbishop Sentamu is on a 6 month Pilgrimage of Prayer, Witness and Blessing throughout the Diocese of York, and had just led a service at All Saints Church Easington and met with youth workers at St Hilda’s Liverton Mines. During his brief visit to the Town Hall, he spoke on the phone with Adrian Childs of Radio 5 Live. Later that day, he visited Skinningrove Village and blessed the restored jetty and improved sea defences.

Loftus Town Mayor, Cllr Hodgson was honoured to be invited to help with the installation of the Tees Valley RIGS Group/North East Yorkshire Geology Trust Interpretation Board at Warren Cottage, Hummersea.
Cllr Hodgson commented "I hope this will be of interest to visitors and walkers along the Cleveland Way and am delighted it raises the profile of Loftus own Lewis Hunton."
