Calderdale Heritage Walks Summer Programme 2019

Posted on Updated on

 

 

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 are still a few walks from the Winter Programme with the next on;

Sunday 3 March – The North Side of Elland.

Elland goes back to at least 1086 yet in 1760 much of the land was open land. In the century that followed, the arrival of canal, railway, new roads, industry and more housing changed things radically.
Meet Ian Philp at 1:30pm by St. Mary’s Parish Church, HX5 0BW for the latest Calderdale Heritage Walk.

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

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

Have a Chat with Staying Well at Heywood Church

Posted on

Calderdale Council and Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group have launched a ground- breaking new project called Staying Well to help tackle loneliness.

In Northowram Staying Well are starting a meeting point at Heywood Church, on Tuesday 22 May and every Tuesday from 10.30am to 12.00pm.

Join them for a coffee, bun and a chat and talk about what you would like to do to stay well. You might like to learn how to use an iPad to stay in touch with your family and make new friends. At least you would be keeping up with the ‘young ones’!

You could have a longing to do something you have never had the courage to attempt but together we would have some idea of what to do. So let’s talk about your difficulties and see what we can do.

Let us listen to each other and see what we can do together! Staying Well will be on Tuesday 5, 12, 19  and 26 June. If you want more information ring Jean on 201475 or 07887 854153. We may be able to fix a lift if it is difficult to get to Heywood. Please talk about it to those you meet.
