Calderdale Heritage Walk – ‘Flats for Women’ and More

 

The summer programme has fortnightly walks plus extra ones including Bank Holiday Mondays.
No pre-booking required, just turn up and pay the Guide – its £3 (all ages).

Almost all starting points are served by public transport. Well behaved dogs on leads are allowed on walks unless indicated by the No Dogs symbol.

There is still a walk from the Winter Programme with the next on;

Saturday 30 March – Fine Halls for Men, Small Flats for Women.

Stories of gracious houses to the south of the town centre, some now vanished.

Includes a look at the Flats for Women sponsored by local Soroptimists in 1938, the site of Halifax’s first Railway Station, the home of Charles Dickens’ father-in-law, and the tale of Mrs Haigh of Lower Shaw Hill who was buried alive!

A circular walk, lasting just over two hours.

Meet David Glover at 1:30pm outside the former Magistrates’ Court, HX1 2AF facing Harrison Road.

Keep an eye on the Facebook page to see any late alterations.

The complete Summer Walks Programme as shown below can be downloaded here.

Vote for Representatives on the Small Grants Panel

Calderdale Council thanks all those who nominated candidates to serve on the Small Grants Panel for the next three years, and who will help to distribute £70,000 to voluntary and community projects to deliver Vision 2024

The representatives on the Panel will be elected through a simple voting system. Your organisation can vote for the nominee you want to see in each category.

There are three different categories of organisations: groups which represent communities of interest, community groups and other. There has been only one nomination for the communities of interest category so you won’t need to vote in that category.

You can vote in each of the other two categories. You can vote up to two separate times on the ballot form:

  • Once for the representative from a community group with an annual income under £20,000 and no paid staff
  • Once for the representative of the “other” category, which includes all other types of group

The ballot form can be found on the web page https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/v2/residents/community-and-living/grants/grants-voluntary-organisations/small-grants-scheme/panel.

After you have made your choice(s) you should press the submit button and your vote will automatically be sent to our inbox.

The deadline for voting is Friday 5 April, 5:00pm. The votes will then be counted and the results will appear on the Council web page shortly afterwards.
