Heather Stout, from the Ovenden and Mixenden Initiative, organised the 3rd Annual Public Services Day to be held in North Halifax this week.
Junior Wardens from Ash Green Community Primary School, Mount Pellon Primary Academy and Moorside Community Primary School attended the event on Wednesday 8 June held at Halifax Rugby Union Ground.
Services who attended to explain the jobs they do in the communities included:
- West Yorkshire Police
- West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service
- Calderdale Council Safer Cleaner Green Team
- Calderdale Council Recycling Team
- Calderdale Council ASB Team
- Calderdale Council Community Wardens
- Calderdale Council Countryside Team
- Calderdale Council Environmental Health Team
The annual event is organised so that young people can learn about some of the important work that takes place on a daily basis in and around their communities.
All the services gave fantastic demonstrations of their jobs including West Yorkshire Police who also allowed the young people to try on a uniform and the Fire Service who demonstrated the use of a hose.
There were demonstrations from the Safer Cleaner Greener Team as well as talks from other services such as Calderdale Council Community Wardens and although the day is mainly to help get a serious message across to young people the event was fun filled and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
