Visitors go wild at Ogden Water

On Wednesday 31st July, North Halifax Partnership Staff Karen Scanlon, Dan Marham and CMBC Community Warden Lee Ackroyd joined The Countryside and Woodlands Team at Ogden Water for a wild Ogden day.

The event was opened by the Mayor of Calderdale, Cllr Dot Foster who welcomed everyone to a fun packed day where they would learn more about local wildlife.  Activities included Minibeast hunts, making an insect hotel, plus indoor crafts  making clay hedgehogs and fuzzy bees as well as educational talks on the importance of bees.

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service attended and spoke to visitors about moorland fires along with Moors for the Future who were there in the Bogtastic Van which tours towns and cities to inspire visitors about the iconic moorlands that surround them.

RSPCA annual Shibden dog show with a Gentlemen Jack twist

f916dee79ab17501edcc32680c13f594

The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and District branch are holding their annual Shibden Dog Day.

This Saturday 27 July – running from 12-4pm,  in the beautiful settings of Shibden Park.

All families and four-legged companions are invited to take part in their 12 class fun dog show, enjoy doggy ‘pawty’ games and peruse a wonderful variety of stalls and games to suit all!

This year the branch are excited to introduce a brand new dog show class – ‘Top Hat Top Dog!”. In celebration of the recent success of the Halifax-based drama Gentleman Jack, the branch hope to see which dog will look best in an Anne Lister-esque top hat, with top hats provided on the day!

Fay Gibbons, Events Coordinator said “We’re really excited to be back at Shibden Park once again with our annual fun dog show and we think the ‘Top Hat – Top Dog’ class will be a really fun element for our attendees and a great celebration of this beautiful Halifax park and it’s incredible history’.

Classes cost just £1.50 and the schedule includes other favourite classes such as ‘waggiest tail’, ‘puppy love’ and ‘best junior handler’ – meaning there is something to suit all breeds and ages.

The local RSPCA branch, which is self funded, is hoping to raise crucial funds for their Wade Street Animal Centre and all of the animals in their care, whilst also raising awareness of the welfare work they do in the Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and district areas.

To find out more about Shibden Dog Day please visit the RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District branch website here: www.rspcahalifaxhuddersfieldbradford.org.uk. You can also find out more on Facebook by searching for ‘Shibden Dog Day 2019’ in events.
