Recycling team visit Moorside Junior Wardens

On Monday 2 December 2019, Moorside Community Primary School Junior Wardens had a visit from Calderdale Council’s Waste Management team members Yvonne Hagan and Chris Crossley who held a very fun and informative session.

The session aimed to get the message across on how to recycle over the festive period with the amount of plastic, cardboard and wrappers that come from gifts and sweets over Christmas.

The junior wardens thoroughly enjoyed the session and seemed keen to put the knowledge into action to help make the environment more friendly.

Look out for future updates from our Junior Wardens Schemes throughout North & East Halifax.

Calderdale Conversations is a new opportunity for people across the region to talk about the things most important to them.

You, your family and your friends all have ideas about Calderdale. Things you’d like to see happen here or things you’d like to be done differently. Calderdale Conversations is about getting those ideas heard and bringing them to life.

Drop in and have a chat with Rachael Henry and Dan Marham this Thursday

  • 10am to 12.30pm – Mixenden Library,
  • 1.30pm to 3.30pm – Beechwood Road Library

We want to have more conversations, more often and in new ways. Asking people to play a direct role in how the place changes and grows. This project is about creating closer connections and new partnerships so together we can reach our vision for the place.

All conversations will be collated to help inform our decision making process. So you can see the impact you are having.

If you want to keep talking you can speak to the Council in a number of ways on a range of issues – Take part in consultations and give feedback here…

Road Safety Partnership tackles parking at Lee Mount School

On Wednesday 23 October 2019, partners from the Calderdale Road Safety Partnership attended Lee Mount Primary School after it was highlighted that parking outside the school was an ongoing issue and has been for some time.

The event was organised by Dan Marham, Ward Link Worker for the Ovenden Initiative following a meeting with Lee Mount Primary School headteacher Emme Ford and was supported by partners from West Yorkshire Police, CMBC Community Wardens and Calderdale Community Safety Wardens who were joined by students George and Jack.

The morning proved to be a success as the zigzag markings were kept clear enabling pupils to safely cross the road on their way into school in the morning. Small posters were fixed onto the school railings to highlight the dangers of parking outside schools and a larger banner was given to the school by the Community Safety Team which is now also on display on the railings.

Work will continue in the future as the Road Safety Partnership work on ways in which  issues such as school parking can be proactively dealt with and there is a full week of action planned from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd November 2019 at schools throughout Calderdale.
