We are going through a lot of change at the moment. We have a new Prime Minister. We have a new King. There is uncertainty about the cost of living crisis and how it will effect us.

Come along and join a group of like-minded people who want to see Calderdale thrive and be a great place to live and work at our membership event. You will feel supported and I’m pretty sure will leave having had a great time.

You’re invited to the official launch of our membership club. This is a monthly networking event for like minded people who support CFFC so we can connect people who care with local causes that matter. There will be open networking and a buffet lunch provided.

We are planning on having monthly events and will choose locations throughout the borough.
