Halifax football author and historian Mark Metcalf will be signing copies of ‘FLYING OVER AN OLIVE GROVE’, the remarkable story of Fred Spiksley at Kershaw’s Garden Centre on Sunday 17 December, 11am – 2pm.
Gainsborough lad Spiksley was amongst the first generation of teenagers who, in 1885, could aspire to be a professional footballer and dodge the inevitability of industrial labour.
He became the first player to score 3 against Scotland, a feat that saw him chased along the touchline by the future Queen of England. He scored both of the Sheffield Wednesday goals when they became the first Yorkshire side to win the FA Cup in 1896. He later led Wednesday to League title success in 1903. He scored over 300 career goals and retains the highest goals-to-game ratio of any winger in the history of English football.
When he finished playing football he took to the stage and acted alongside Charlie Chaplin on over 50 occasions. He then became a world famous coach and was the first to coach on three continents. He managed 1FC Nuremburg in 1914 and when WWI started he was, like all British citizens in Germany, imprisoned. He escaped and later returned to the country and won the Germany title with Nuremburg. In 1929, Spiksley helped make the first speaking coaching film for young people.
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.

Parents and carers of children with learning difficulties, autism and any of a range of special needs are only too aware of how difficult it is to teach their lovely children the basics of life that come as routine to others – including looking after their teeth.
Making tooth care fun and interesting is what this event is all about.
Fun and games inside Sensory World and a visit to the big white van outside to turn tooth care into an adventure.
Just £5 for some fun training about caring for growing teeth.
No booking required – but if you are able please give Linda a call on 07801 065589 if you are planning to visit, just to help with the planning.
