Greetland Academy has 2 Midday Supervisor vacancies to start as soon as possible for individuals who are pro-active, keen and enthusiastic, who can encourage children to enjoy their lunch and are happy to organise games etc.
The academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are an equal opportunity employer.
The Canal & River Trust, the charity that cares for 2,000 miles of historic waterways in England and Wales, is organising a clean-up of the Calder and Hebble Navigation canal at Elland, after the Boxing Day floods caused widespread damage to the towpath and dumped rubbish and other debris.
The Trust is holding a volunteer event between 10am and 1pm on Saturday 23 January focussed on the canal between Elland Lock and Park Nook lock. Local people can help repair the towpath, rebuild a damaged dry stone wall and clear the rubbish that the flood waters have dropped.

West Yorkshire Police are piloting “Graffiti Alerts” using photo-sharing site Flickr and the site features graffiti photos, as well as locations, of a number of areas in Calderdale and the wider areas of West Yorkshire.
If you recognise any of the graffiti “tags” or images, you can report your suspicions online to Crimestoppers – and you might even qualify for a small reward.
