Survey on Cancer Recovery Package

Posted on Updated on

Are you a cancer patient who has received treatment in West Yorkshire and Harrogate?

West Yorkshire and Harrogate Cancer Alliance is keen to find out patients’ experience of being offered any of the different parts of the ‘Recovery Package’, which means that the support you get is built around you and your own needs. New national cancer guidance says that all people diagnosed with cancer should have access to the ‘Recovery Package’ by 2020.

They want to know which parts you were offered, what was useful and beneficial and your views on how we could improve.

Please follow the link to the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Cancer Alliance website where you can complete the survey and submit it online. The survey will be available from July 10 to September 14 2018. https://canceralliance.wyhpartnership.co.uk/news-and-events/latest-news/complete-our-patient-survey-living-and-beyond-cancer

Train Like a Jedi and Change4Life

Posted on Updated on

Taking inspiration from everyone’s favourite Star WarsTM characters, Rey and Luke, it’s time to get your kids moving as they learn to master the ways of the Jedi with our fun, play along video. Check back for new games every week throughout the summer – play now!

The Resistance needs you!
Calling all friends of the Resistance, the First Order are fast approaching and the Resistance need as much help as they can get during their darkest hour. This is your chance to help, so get ready!

Through this fun Train Like A Jedi video, Olympic gold medalist Jade Jones will guide you through 12 special moves which will help you master the ways of the Jedi. Be strong, healthy and prepared for when the Resistance might need you.

The 12 moves become one Jedi training routine. Don’t worry if you can’t manage them all at once – some of them need a bit of practice. And once you’ve mastered these don’t be afraid to have a go at creating your own moves too!

Once you have finished the training, these Jedi skills will be valuable in the next part of the journey – a series of secret challenges during the summer holidays.

Have fun, work hard and Train Like A Jedi. May the Force be with you!

Have Your Say! New Plans for North Bridge Leisure Centre

Posted on Updated on

From Monday 16 July to Monday 13 August have your say on plans for the new Halifax leisure centre. Click here to take part in the survey and help shape the plans.

Exciting, new leisure facilities in Halifax.
Currently, Halifax has two town centre sports provision sites, Halifax Swimming Pool and North Bridge Leisure Centre. Both facilities are dated and require significant ongoing maintenance to continue to operate.
To ensure the future provision of modern leisure facilities in the town, the Council has been exploring a number of options for the construction of a new facility in the town centre to meet the needs of the community.

A feasibility study concluded that a new combined swimming pool and leisure facility on the existing North Bridge site would provide the most cost effective solution, by incorporating the existing main sports hall and viewing balcony.
Work is currently progressing on the detailed design, construction and consultation requirements and we will commence a stakeholder consultation process from July to August 2018 to ensure that those who are using the facilities will benefit from them.

 

Transforming Halifax

The outcomes of this project will:

  • Grow the economy – Contribute to the wider regeneration of Halifax town centre as part of an improved retail and leisure offer.
  • Reduce inequality – Reduce health inequalities throughout the Borough by providing sustainable leisure facilities which are more accessible to residents in areas with poor health outcomes.
  • Modernise the Council – Increase productivity by addressing the current demand for leisure activities, reducing unused spaces, dealing with the existing maintenance backlog and achieving greater energy efficiency.

‘World Builder’ – Summer Workshop with LEGO Bricks

Posted on

On Thursday 26 July, 1:00pm-2:30pm, Bricks4Kidz will be holding a workshop at the Sun Country Inn, Lightcliffe using LEGO bricks.

The workshop suitable for children 5 and above will be using the function room upstairs which means that parents / grandparents / carers can drop off the children and make use of the bar / restaurant for some R&R knowing that they’ll be entertained.

Please note that the workshops take place on the first floor and not accessible for wheelchairs.

Bricks4Kidz are doing what they do best …. awesome building fun with LEGO bricks!

It doesn’t take much for a child to use their imagination to create new worlds and environments using LEGO bricks.

The “World Builder” workshop fuses the idea of Minecraft, alongside LEGO City and Friends, to allow the children to create buildings, communities, or the natural world around us.

The Technic LEGO builds will add something special to their creations.

Tickets are £4.90 per child and are available through Eventbrite.

All the bookable sessions will be available on www.brickworkshops.co.uk – keep checking as additional sessions will be added as they are confirmed.
