Book Signing by Mark Metcalf at Kershaw’s Garden Centre

Posted on

Halifax football author and historian Mark Metcalf will be signing copies of ‘FLYING OVER AN OLIVE GROVE’, the remarkable story of Fred Spiksley at Kershaw’s Garden Centre on Sunday 17 December, 11am – 2pm.

Gainsborough lad Spiksley was amongst the first generation of teenagers who, in 1885, could aspire to be a professional footballer and dodge the inevitability of industrial labour.

He became the first player to score 3 against Scotland, a feat that saw him chased along the touchline by the future Queen of England. He scored both of the Sheffield Wednesday goals when they became the first Yorkshire side to win the FA Cup in 1896. He later led Wednesday to League title success in 1903. He scored over 300 career goals and retains the highest goals-to-game ratio of any winger in the history of English football.

When he finished playing football he took to the stage and acted alongside Charlie Chaplin on over 50 occasions. He then became a world famous coach and was the first to coach on three continents. He managed 1FC Nuremburg in 1914 and when WWI started he was, like all British citizens in Germany, imprisoned. He escaped and later returned to the country and won the Germany title with Nuremburg. In 1929, Spiksley helped make the first speaking coaching film for young people.

Get involved with the Brighouse Yarn Explosion for Tour de Yorkshire

Posted on Updated on

brighouse-yarn-bombersOn Sunday 30 April 2017, the Tour de Yorkshire will be passing through Brighouse town centre.  We would like to decorate Brighouse to welcome the cyclists and visitors, but to do this we need your help.

Do you have spare wool that you could donate, can you knit, crochet or sew? You could help make yellow jersey bunting, flowers, pom poms, leaves, squares, strips which can then be sewn together to create features.  If you can make it we can use it!

The chosen charity of the Tour de Yorkshire this year is the Alzheimer’s Society,  Alzheimers Disease is the most common cause of Dementia.  The logo of the Society is the Forget-me-not, so we would like as many knitted/crocheted Forget-me-nots as possible to create a special feature.

As the Tour de Yorkshire takes place on the same weekend as the Brighouse Spring Market we hope to create a Yarn Trail to entertain visitors, young and old alike.

To find out more about how you can get involved drop into Wesley House at Central Methodist Church on Tuesday’s at 7pm, information can also be found at Baa Baa Brighouse in Rastrick, Pot Spot in Brighouse and Samuel Taylors at Kershaw’s Garden Centre, Halifax Road.

Donations can also be dropped off at any of those locations.
