Elland Boxing gym as they will be bringing a bit of booooom to the Elland Carnival procession and keep an eye out for a couple of boxing local legends on the floats.
One of the biggest floats this year with over 80 juniors and adults will be the Elland RLFC squads ranging from under 5s to open age. Elland RLFC have been going strong for over 40 years.
Elland Anchormen are back in the Carnival this year on their very own float and in the Carnival show. They are in terms of history, legends of Elland.
Elland Rex Cinema will be opening the doors at 11:00am on Carnival day when anyone and everyone will be able to walk around this historic little cinema.
There will be films etc. played throughout the day (pictures house to confirm films etc.) and free liquid refreshments for children.
This is what Elland is all about and is a brilliant way to see a little bit of history on Carnival day.
The Elland Carnival is going to be bigger than ever this year. But with the Carnival growing they will need help on the day from some local Elland Volunteers. You could be part of a group or just want to help out. From setting up stalls, helping on the procession to cleaning up after the event. If you are interested then please can contact the organisers with your details via the Facebook page.
Local people are invited to have their say on exciting plans for proposed improvements in Elland town centre.
Elland is one of the oldest settlements in Calderdale and it has a number of positives as a town, with high-quality historic buildings and a variety of independent retailers. However, there are also a number of areas that have been identified as requiring improvement, such as the lack of green space and there being no clear centre to the town.
The Elland master plan aims to develop a vision of regeneration for the town centre, building on the town’s unique characteristics and creating a vibrant heart to the town.
Improvement proposals include changes to the transport network, improving pedestrian access, creating more green space areas and making the most of the town’s many heritage elements. There are also a number of complementary initiatives proposed, including expanded market events, and community growing projects, all designed to increase the amount of time people spend in the town.
To ensure the proposals meet the needs of local communities, a consultation is taking place for people to have their say on initial plans.
The detailed proposals can be viewed online at http://www.calderdalenextchapter.co.uk/projects/elland-town-centre-masterplan, where there is also the opportunity to complete the feedback form.
People can also meet the team at Southgate Methodist Church in Elland on Thursday 13 June, 2:00pm-6:00pm, where there will be the opportunity to discuss plans, ask questions and provide feedback.
Plans are also on display at Elland Library and Halifax Central Library and will be in place until Friday 14 June.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Resources, Cllr Jane Scullion, said:
“Elland has a lot to offer as a town, and with exciting plans for a new £22 million rail station and accompanying access improvements in development it’s important that we can harness the town’s potential as a place where people want to live, shop, visit and set up business.
“The Elland masterplan is a vision of how the town could be improved, enhancing the town’s existing positives and addressing some of the issues which are holding it back.
“I really hope people get involved and have their say either online or at our consultation event, to ensure we can create a future which meets the needs of local communities.”
Cllr Kim Groves, Chair of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority Transport Committee said:
“As well as providing significant benefits to people travelling to Halifax, Bradford and Leeds and, further afield, in Manchester, the new Elland Station would mean improved facilities for people who cycle and walk.
“Our plans for a new rail station for Elland through investment from the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund will be at the heart of the huge benefits this masterplan can deliver for the town and I would urge people to make sure they have their say online or in person.”
Once the consultation is complete, the design team will review all feedback and make any necessary changes to existing proposals, before taking the plans forward.
Retaining the distinctive heritage features in Elland supports the Vision2024 for Calderdale to stand out and be known – distinctiveness is one of the Vision’s key themes.
In the year 2024, Calderdale will celebrate its 50th birthday. Where do we want to be by 2024? How will the Calderdale of 2024 be different from the place it is now? What ambitions do we share? Join the conversation by following #VisionCdale2024 on social media and visit www.calderdale.gov.uk/v2/council/vision-2024
The Elland Station Gateway project is funded by the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund. Managed by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, the Transport Fund has been part-funded through the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Growth Deal – a £1 billion package of funding to drive growth and job creation across the Leeds City Region.

The wonder and amazement of watching bubbles form and float, then fall, burst and disappear is totally mesmerising. Smiling and laughing, waving her arms with excitement and anticipating what was coming as they lifted the wand to blow each time!

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.
From Friday 17 to Friday 31 May, markets across the world will be getting involved with the National Association of British Market Authorities’ (NABMA) Love Your Local Market campaign.
Now in its eighth year, the campaign celebrates markets being at the heart of local communities, with the theme ‘Markets – Close to your heart’.
Throughout the fortnight there will be an artist in residence at Halifax Borough Market, in association with Halifax Business Improvement District (BID) and Artworks, Halifax. Visitors will be able to see illustrator Louis Benoit at work, producing sketches and drawings inspired by the unique sights, sounds and atmosphere of the magnificent Victorian market. Shoppers are encouraged to come and watch, ask questions and chat.
Louis’ residency will be followed by a second artist and a poet, with the resulting pieces forming part of an exhibition in the summer.
Also at Halifax Borough Market will be a Record Fair on Saturday 25 May in the Albany Arcade and on Thursday 30 May the Arcade also hosts a Food Mixer Market, celebrating great local food and including a pop up from Halifax-based Darkland Brewery.
Todmorden will be hosting a ‘Foodie Fryday’ event on Friday 31 May, 9:00am-7:00pm, which will be a feast for the senses with a great selection of delicious food on offer, including fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, fine cheeses, jams and preserves, freshly made pizza, vegan treats, Indian street food, sweet treats and much more.
There’ll also be special offers and tastings at other Calderdale Markets, including Hebden Bridge, Sowerby Bridge, Brighouse and Elland.
Calderdale Council’s Markets Manager, John Walker, said:
“Love Your Local Market fortnight is always a special time at Calderdale markets. It’s a great time to visit, as in addition to the existing great stalls, there are lots of special events showcasing our wonderful markets.
“If you’re a young entrepreneur it’s also the perfect time to test out your ideas, with free stalls for young traders at our Open Markets.
“There are also lots of other incentives available, including free weeks and ‘trade for a fiver’ options. Get in touch to find out more!”
