Salt Sunday 2017
Would anyone like to take part in a very special event in May next year?

Communities and industries have flourished thanks to the salt reserves beneath our feet in Mid-Cheshire. Since 2009, the Salt of the Earth Network has drawn on this abundance to make connections between businesses, communities and churches. 
Termly network meetings explore contemporary topics in a variety of locations.
Each year, Salt Sunday explores and celebrates this heritage with a family-friendly mix of interactive art, music and science. In 2017, we’re taking our annual Salt Sunday event back to the Lion Salt Works in Marston, Northwich for a contemporary family-friendly event from 1:30-4pm on Sunday 7th May.

This year we’re expanding our activities with three streams spread across the site throughout the afternoon: 

• A messy science stream: with hands-on science for all ages including, of course, salt panning;

• An EXPO stream with space for displays from industry, faith, heritage and more with a series of 5-minute taster talks and a great opportunity to network, and... 

• An arts and worship stream: with live music, a talk from Keith Sinclair, the Bishop of Birkenhead, and a community drama event created by Mr and Mrs Theatre Company. 

You may have been involved in previous events or you may have never heard of Salt Sunday – but we’re sending you this invitation to see if you would be willing and able to be a part of the day.
 Please do pass it onto any of your contacts who you feel may also be interested in taking part.
You can watch a short save-the-date clip here:, and you can find out more about the Salt of the Earth Network and other upcoming events here:
Interested in taking part or want to know more?
 Then please respond to or by using the “contact us” page at detailing your organisation, which stream (messy science, EXPO and/or arts and worship) you best fit into and any questions you may have.
