Yorkshire Day at Shroggs Park event

In case you missed it, last Sunday 1st of August was Yorkshire Day when our very own Natalie Ratner made a grand event at Shroggs park possible!

The Day celebrations were not the only reason for this event. There are efforts to restore and reuse the Shroggs Park Pavilion, which there is every hope it can become a feature for more such community events.

We had a fantastic time [yesterday] celebrating Yorkshire Day with every generation of the community at Shroggs Park! A huge thank you to everyone who came along.

We enjoyed welly wanging, a brilliant history talk by David Glover, a variety of sports with Tanny from Calderdale Youth Service, hunting for Yorkshire phrases around the park and arts and crafts including flag making, badge making and pebble painting.

This was truly a community effort and really highlighted what’s possible when we come together. Community events like this can become a regular feature if the Pavilion was in use to host them.
Visit them on Facebook to read special thanks, see more pictures and find out the winners of competitions!

Volunteers resume works at Shroggs Park

With the help of local volunteers, the Friends of Shroggs Park Group have started to pick up where they left off pre-covid with a number of small scaled clean up and maintenance activities in the park which have taken place fortnightly.

Friends of Shroggs Park and community volunteers have been working in small groups over the last month alongside employees from CMBC Parks Department to carry out works in order to keep the park in a pleasant state for those who use it.

The first clean up effort resulted in a dozen bin liners of general litter being removed from the parks grounds with the whole park, including the woodland walk being covered on that occasion.

The following work that took place was focused on cutting back and neatening up the edges of the walkways in the vicinity of the maze which saw a fair amount of turf loaded into the back of a CMBC Vehicle.

The group would like to extend a thank you to CMBC for the support and providing the vehicles to remove the waste at the end of the clean ups.

These activities are currently ongoing with the next one taking place on Monday 24th August 2020 – 10am to 12noon, meeting by the Maze in the park.

If you would like to get involved in these efforts or require further information, contact Peter Robinson on 07599 524471 or by email to peterrobinson936@yahoo.co.uk. You can also email Dan Marham, Ward Link Worker for the North Halifax Partnership at Daniel.Marham@Calderdale.gov.uk if you would like to get involved.

Parkruns in Calderdale

Winter is upon us and you may not feel like getting out and being Active Calderdale in the cold, but there is still a lot you can do in the garden. Being active will make you feel good physically and mentally and keep you warm too!

Another great way to be active with your friends, family and grandchildren is to take part in ‘parkrun’ and here’s a bit of information that might be news to you.

Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs all over the world. They are open to everyone, totally free, organised by a group of local volunteers, held in pleasant parkland surroundings and everyone whether young or old, male or female, fit or unfit, able-bodied or not is always welcome. It’s not about racing, it’s about running at your own pace.

We have 2 parkruns in Calderdale, one at Shroggs Park in Halifax and the other at Wellholme Park in Brighouse. Both start at 9am every Saturday. We also have a new Junior parkrun starting at Wellholme Park in Brighouse on Sunday 17 December at 9am. Junior parkrun is a 2k run for juniors aged 4-14 years old and will take place on Sunday mornings at 9am.
