Push the boat out! Try Sailing in May

Posted on

ptbo-bannerOn Sunday 19th May HALIFAX SAILING CLUB invite you to visit the highest sailing club in England for their annual open day Push the Boat Out.

Try out sailing or windsurfing for FREE on 90 acres of water at 1350ft above sea level here in Calderdale!

Whether you’re completely new to the sport, looking to get back on the water or sail regularly, you are welcome to come along and have some fun.

Starting at midday visitors can get out on the water and try out sailing or windsurfing. All you’ll need is suitable footwear but a change of clothes would always be a good idea – just in case.

Club Commodore Graham Norton said: “We are delighted to be taking part in the RYA Push the Boat Out. We are inviting the local community to come down to the club, have a go at sailing and windsurfing, see what the club has to offer and get involved. Who knows, if you visit you might just get hooked!”

Halifax Sailing Club is based at Warley Moor Reservoir (also known as Fly Flatts) in Calderdale. Find out more, and contact details, visit www.halifaxsailingclub.org.uk

Love Your Local Markets this Easter

Posted on Updated on

Where shopping comes to life… at your local markets.

Calderdale is a place where there is a real buzz in the air. People talking, shopping, meeting friends and buying from local people they trust.

Calderdale markets are not like typical supermarkets where you get what you need and go, they are bursting at the seams with energy and friendliness. The traders are always looking out for new products to bring to our markets and many cook, bake and sew themselves, so you know you’re getting local quality at great prices.

The famous market halls have everything you need, when you need it.

Take a trip to your local market and see for yourself. Great products, great value and great people to talk to!

Opening of Refurbished Courts at Park Tennis Club

Posted on Updated on

Despite the cool weather, the tennis season is close upon us! Park Tennis Club, Bute Avenue, Brighouse HD6 2JA have been gearing up over the last month and will be officially opening their newly refurbished courts on Sunday 14 April, 10:00am-3:00pm.

New and existing members are expected to dust off their rackets and try out the Italian clay court surface, now sporting new ‘no nail’ lines. The two court club on Bute Avenue is thought to be the first tennis club in West Yorkshire to install this technology, widely used on the high profile championship courts in Europe.

The Open Day will take place from 10:00am-3:00pm with a variety of on-court activities, which visitors are welcome to join in with. Absolutely anyone is welcome, there are rackets available to borrow and light refreshments will be served.

Like many smaller sports clubs, Park Tennis Club depends on a band of willing volunteers. This spring, members have carried out major maintenance work on the courts, laying over a tonne of clay dressing, relocating the net posts, as well as installing new lines. Fencing and fence posts have been repaired, the exterior of the quaint wooden pavilion, the storage shed, and the shed housing last year’s major development (an automated watering system) have been painted.

All this ensures pleasant, modern and well maintained surroundings, and after all their hard work, members are looking forward to a successful season.
