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!

Vote for Representatives on the Small Grants Panel

Posted on

Calderdale Council thanks all those who nominated candidates to serve on the Small Grants Panel for the next three years, and who will help to distribute £70,000 to voluntary and community projects to deliver Vision 2024

The representatives on the Panel will be elected through a simple voting system. Your organisation can vote for the nominee you want to see in each category.

There are three different categories of organisations: groups which represent communities of interest, community groups and other. There has been only one nomination for the communities of interest category so you won’t need to vote in that category.

You can vote in each of the other two categories. You can vote up to two separate times on the ballot form:

  • Once for the representative from a community group with an annual income under £20,000 and no paid staff
  • Once for the representative of the “other” category, which includes all other types of group

The ballot form can be found on the web page https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/v2/residents/community-and-living/grants/grants-voluntary-organisations/small-grants-scheme/panel.

After you have made your choice(s) you should press the submit button and your vote will automatically be sent to our inbox.

The deadline for voting is Friday 5 April, 5:00pm. The votes will then be counted and the results will appear on the Council web page shortly afterwards.

Men as Parents Survey with Calderdale Council

Posted on Updated on

Are you a male? Do you care for a child aged 5 or under? Do you live in Calderdale? Then Calderdale Council wants to hear your views.

This survey aims to capture the views from men who care for a child or children under the age of five e.g. dad, grandparent, uncle, brother, step dad, dad to be.

This will help to inform and potentially shape the development of future Calderdale Council and other partner organisations’ services, activities and groups for men who have a caring role for a child aged 5 or under in Calderdale.

All the information collected is anonymous.
(Please note: where a question says ‘my child/ren’ it is referring to the child/ren you look after in your caring role.)

Take the survey by following https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/survey/men-as-parents-2019/

Small Grants Scheme for Voluntary and Community Projects in Calderdale

Posted on Updated on

Calderdale Council’s Small Grants Scheme provides small grants of up to £2,500 to voluntary and community groups all over Calderdale. Each year £70,000 is awarded to a range of community initiatives and voluntary sector projects.

These grants are distributed through a Small Grants Panel, made up of five Calderdale Councillors and three representatives from voluntary groups, community groups and groups that represent communities of interest. The Panel meets four times a year on a Thursday afternoon for two hours.

The voluntary and community sector representatives are appointed for three years, and we are now inviting nominations for representatives to serve on the Voluntary Sector Grants Panel for 2019 to 2022. Each organisation can nominate one person as a representative. The nomination form can be found at our web page https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/v2/residents/community-and-living/grants/grants-voluntary-organisations/small-grants-scheme/panel.

If you feel that you or someone else in your organisation would like to be a member of the Small Grants Panel, please complete the nomination form, and return it by Monday 25th February 2019. After the nominations have closed, details of all nominees will then be available on this web page, and voluntary and community groups will be asked to vote for the individuals that they would like to see represent them on the Panel.

Before you decide whether to nominate a representative from your organisation, details about the Small Grants scheme can be found at https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/v2/residents/community-and-living/grants/grants-voluntary-organisations/small-grants-scheme.
