We’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that we are still here if you need us to lend a listening ear. You can refer yourself to us or request a referral from a GP, your support worker or even family and friends if you need some help.
No one needs to be alone.

We can offer assistance in a variety of different languages, please enquire to see how we can assist.

Be as snug as Bertie Bug with his top tips to keep your warm healthier and warmer for less. Financial assistance – small grants and loans – are available for boiler replacements or repairs, loft/ attic room insulation and cavity wall insulation for eligible households.
If you’ve not switched your energy supplier for 2-3 years you may be able to get a better deal and save money.

The Lunch Club meets on Mondays, 11:00am-1:30pm (except public holidays) at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church on Huddersfield Road, Halifax HX3 0AT.
Coffee and tea are served until mid-day when there is a short ‘God-spot’. After this there is a lunch of soup, sandwiches and cakes, nearly all home-made.
Running through the whole session is plenty of chat and laughter. Some of those who come are from St. Andrew’s, some from other churches and some with no church links at all. Everyone is welcome.
You don’t need to book, you don’t need to come every week, you can arrive and leave when you feel like it. Why not try it, and perhaps bring a friend?
There is a charge of £2.
You may also be interested in a one-off event on Saturday 15 September, 6:30pm when the Hoe Down will be held including a pie and peas supper. Tickets are £5 for adults and £2.50 for children and can be purchased by calling Leslie on 01422 250502.
This FREE event is aimed at older people, especially those who are often housebound and isolated, who may benefit from the opportunity to get out and about and enjoy listening to a melody of popular tunes played by Calderdale’s own Senior Citizens Orchestra led by Judith McLean. If you know people who would benefit from such an event like this, please bring them along. We would like to encourage Care Homes to organise transport for their residents to attend. This event is in partnership with Calderdale Council’s Staying Well Project.
Refreshments will be provided and served at the end of the performance.
