Have Your Say! Wheelchair Service for Calderdale

Calderdale Lower Valley

Calderdale and KIrklees CCGs need your help to design a future service. They invite you to two events to help them do this. The two events will be held in one central location ‘The Holiday Inn’, Clifton Village, West Yorkshire, Brighouse, HD6 4HW and they would like your support to attend one or both events.

The first event is on Friday 11 May, 9:45am-2:30pm. This event is about sharing what people have already told us about wheelchair services, looking at these findings and making sure we have not missed anything. The second one is on Friday 20 July, 9:45am -12:15pm. This follow up event is about looking at our proposed model of service and hearing your views about this.

You can register to attend the event using the online link or scanning the QR code (for registration by mobile) below. Or by printing off the

Better later than never…Junior Warden Easter Egg Hunt

beechhilleaster.jpgThe rain held off  just long enough for our community wardens and HCI team to host a Easter Egg quiz with the Junior wardens from Beech Hill School, Halifax. The reschedules hunt took place in People’s Park on Wednesday afternoon with 30 of our junior wardens. The children loved running around the park and were fascinated by the history that sits right on their doorstep! The children were spilt into 6 teams and our staff lead the children round the park to complete the 15 questions.

The children were then presented each with a Easter Egg. Unfortunately our other Junior wardens from Christ Church School in Sowerby Bridge were unable to join us, so Jonny and Zameer went into school to present the children before the chocolate was eaten by our staff . An egg-cellent time was had by all!

Line Dancing and More with SOFA!

Calderdale Lower Valley

Have you got an inner John Wayne or Calamity Jane? SOFA runs Line Dancing sessions in St. Anne’s church hall on Thursdays, 2:30pm-3:30pm. You don’t need a partner and the first 2 sessions are FREE.

SOFA‘s  aim is to offer people primarily in the 50 plus age group within the community of Southowram and surrounding areas, a range of fun activities to help promote their health and well-being.

Sessions cost £3 which is payable on the day – so you only need pay for the sessions you attend.

If you’re not sure whether an activity is for you, come along and give it a try, or just sit and watch.  The first two weeks ‘taster’ sessions are free!  (Please note that this concession does not apply to those sessions which are planned to run for a limited number of weeks.)
