Children in Need
Now that Halloween and Bonfire Night are over, we should be concentrating on raising money for BBC Children Need. Whilst the Appeal Show is on Friday 16 November there is lots that you can be doing to raise money before and after that date.
Let us know what you, your school, your workplace are planning and we will promote it on our blogs and in our Friday Flyers.
Yes – the legendary Harry Gration and the less legendary Paul Hudson (but who always makes the weather more interesting than a chat at a bus stop) will be visiting Elland. They may not know that they are privileged to be part of the momentous 700 celebration.
On the 24th of February 1317, John de Eland was issued a royal charter by King Edward II allowing him to hold a weekly market and two fairs annually, therefore confirming Elland’s status as a market town.
There will be have stalls selling crafts, handmade cushions & aprons, greetings cards & wrapping paper, hot sandwiches & meats and fresh fish. Come and join the fun! @Calderdalemkt
