MY piece about the meaning of Easter - DIY, decorating, gardening or religion? - struck a chord with Mrs Ruth Yates of Birstall.
“I can assure you many people still do go to Church on this, as you correctly said, the most important Christian event of the year.
“ I shall be there on Maunday Thursday evening when we are all invited to wash one another's feet (a very moving experience) and on Good Friday with activities for youngsters in the morning, a walk of witness carrying the cross, a meditation in the afternoon or evening.
“We then have a united celebration on Easter Sunday itself at 10.30 am.
“All this takes place at St Peter's Church, Kirkgate, Birstall and you will be made very welcome if you wish to come to any of these events.
“Lots of other churches also have Easter services to which many people go.
“I was brought up in Dewsbury where we had Whitsuntide clothes, not Easter clothes. We would dress up in our new finery before going to knock on neighbours' door to show them off - the clothes, not the neighbours - and hope to be given a few coppers to put in our pockets.
“Keep up the good work, Ruth.”
You, too, Ruth.
