bhy-calderdaleIs your attic room or loft space costing you money?

Did you know that up to 25% of a home’s heat can be lost through the roof?If your attic room or loft space is not properly insulated, you could be wasting money on your energy bills.

Better Homes Calderdale is a scheme that could help make your home warmer and cheaper to heat.

The scheme is available to privately owned and privately rented properties in certain areas of Calderdale.

This offer could provide you with these works free of charge*.

You have received this leaflet as your home is one of those that could be eligible to receive these works.

So how does it work?

We will arrange for one of our assessors to visit you and carry out a full, no obligation survey of your property. This survey usually takes around two hours. During this time, the assessor will explain the scheme in more detail to you and be able to answer any questions that you have.

* All work is subject to survey and resident’s circumstances

This offer is only available for a limited time!

River Calder Clean Up

On Saturday 14 October Halifax Community wardens Jonny Cato and Zameer Akhtar joined Halifax Canoe Club and Calder Future volunteers for a community river clean up in Sowerby Bridge.

Following a week of rain we were lucky to enjoy a sunny morning picking glass and litter from the beach area and clearing all manner of rubbish from the wooded areas. As well as the danger to local wildlife this kind of rubbish can cause a real risk to canoeists and kayakers.

Finishing up with a well-earned brew and a biscuit in the club house, Jonny and Zameer had a good look at the boats and expressed an interest in the winter pool sessions now available for booking! Keep an eye out for their Calderdale Council high vis jackets sailing by!

Halifax Canoe Club winter pool sessions are available from October 2017 to March 2018 and are suitable for beginners learning to paddle and for those that would like to learn to roll. Course run on Thursday evenings between 7 and 8pm and cost £35 (both adult and junior sessions) for 5 sessions – there’s a £5 winter membership fee for non-members.
