Golly – it hardly feels like 5 minutes since we had the last Staying Well newsletter but a lot has happened since then! We also need to keep you up to date with what is happening over the Christmas period and give you a chance to look at the full newsletter here.
There will be the Brew and a Chat Christmas party at St. Columba’s Church Hall, Pellon on Monday 10 December, 10:30am-12:30pm.
Tesco, Sowerby Bridge are sponsoring a Christmas party at St. Paul’s Methodist Church, Sowerby Bridge HX6 2EQ on Tuesday 11 December, 2:00pm.

Not everyone has the best time at Christmas and Todmorden Central Methodist Church will be holding a short, reflective service / contemplation on Saturday 22 December, 2:30pm for those who struggle over the festive period.
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.
Take a look at Bertie’s top tips and please pass them on to your friends and family too.

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.

In Northowram Staying Well are starting a meeting point at Heywood Church, on Tuesday 22 May and every Tuesday from 10.30am to 12.00pm.
Join them for a coffee, bun and a chat and talk about what you would like to do to stay well. You might like to learn how to use an iPad to stay in touch with your family and make new friends. At least you would be keeping up with the ‘young ones’!
You could have a longing to do something you have never had the courage to attempt but together we would have some idea of what to do. So let’s talk about your difficulties and see what we can do.
Let us listen to each other and see what we can do together! Staying Well will be on Tuesday 5, 12, 19 and 26 June. If you want more information ring Jean on 201475 or 07887 854153. We may be able to fix a lift if it is difficult to get to Heywood. Please talk about it to those you meet.
