The classes run by Curious Motion throughout the year have been cancelled for now but they are also moving online and from Tuesday next week they are running a ‘virtual coffee morning’ each week for anyone who would like to join.
This is particularly to support the group of people over 55 who usually attend our ‘Brews & Grooves’ class on a Tuesday morning and are likely to be self isolating for a significant period of time, but it is also open to anyone who wants to join.
To sign up for the coffee mornings email Sam for the info. This can be found on the Curious Motion website: www.curiousmotion.org.uk.
Virtual Coffee mornings will run every Tuesday at 10am.

The Leader of Calderdale Council, Councillor Tim Swift said:
“Just over a week ago, I said that we are facing the greatest challenge since the Second World War. Today I repeat that statement.
“The Prime Minister’s announcement last night means that every single resident of Calderdale, before they leave their door, must consider if this is absolutely essential. The only reasons you may leave home are:
- to go to work (but work from home if possible);
- to shop for groceries, medicine and other essentials (infrequently);
- to exercise outside (once a day);
- to provide care or help a vulnerable person or
- for any medical need.
“If you are not doing any of these things please stop and think again. This virus will continue to spread if people do not follow the Government’s advice.
“The health and wellbeing of every single one of us, young and old, of good health or in poor health, depends on the actions we do or do not take today. We are putting further guidance in place on these measures as we receive it.
“We all know this is difficult, but we are in unprecedented times. The Council today is reviewing again every service and activity we undertake. We always focus on the most vulnerable and the most in need. We are a place of kindness and resilience and now our overarching focus must be on this.
“We will be updating you on further impacts to the Council as soon as possible. We are also working to launch a support hub for the most vulnerable this week. We have written to businesses about the announcements made by the Government and will make financial support available as soon as we receive it from the Government.
“Thank you for your care, your kindness and spirit of togetherness. We know how unsettling this is but we will get through this together.
Important notice from the Integrated Sexual Health Service; Queue and wait clinics are suspended until further notice. If you require our service you must ring clinic on 01422 261370 or 261365 to be triaged over the phone and an appointment will be offered where appropriate.
We apologise for the inconvenience but must take all reasonable precautions in line with medical advice and government guidance.
We also have an “Ask the expert” section on the website which can be used to make non-urgent queries and a member of our clinical staff will reply as soon as possible. Further information on service provision or changes will be posted here or through Facebook and twitter.

Feeling concerned or overwhelmed by the news around coronavirus (COVID-19) is understandable, especially for those children and young people who are struggling with their mental health or you have a physical illness. They may be feeling worried about their own health, or someone in their family, or what impact the virus will have on life as a whole.
Open Minds have created a section on Calderdale’s emotional health and wellbeing website where children, young people, parents, carers, family members, school staff and colleagues can find tips, support, advice and information about looking after your self in these uncertain times.
Please share this link far and wide with children, young people, their families and colleagues you work with
The 2020 Halifax Long March has been cancelled. The following message appears at the official website:
“It is with a heavy heart that we have taken the decision to cancel this year’s Halifax Long March.
Given the current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic it was felt that it would not be in the best interest of our walkers, helpers or committee members to proceed with the event at this time.
We will be contacting all parties involved over the next few days to fully explain our decision and to arrange refunds of walker registration fees.
The committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all our walkers, helpers and charity associates for your interest and support and we hope to see you all again in 2021. ”
