Tree planting at Hey Green

Volunteers from Newsome Ward Community Forum have been busy clearing ground at Hey Green so that we can plant some more trees.

Hey Green is a community orchard and nature site in Lowerhouses. Join us on Saturday 23rd March 2019 from 10am to 12 noon to help plant 90 Hawthorn, Blackthorn and Dog Rose tree saplings that have been provided by the Woodland Trust. Meet by the steps at the entrance to Hey Green (on Lowerhouses Lane, about opposite the nursery) or by the plaque just above. We are also looking for volunteers to plant wildflower seeds from Grow Wild.

Democracy Club | Elections data party

Let’s get together to help voters!

Thursday 4th April 2019 from 6pm to 9pm at The Media Centre, 7 Northumberland Street, Huddersfield HD1 1RL

Want to do something practical to improve our local democracy? Join Democracy Club’s volunteers to help gather and publish better information about who you can vote for, ahead of the 2019 local elections in England and Northern Ireland.

We all need to know who we can vote for. But it’s not always easy to find out about your candidates.

At this event, we’ll be taking candidate lists that councils publish and turning this information into useful data that anyone can use.

The information that we gather during the event will then be available to voters via a website called Who Can I Vote For? and via many other websites and apps.

You don’t need any technical knowledge or experience to take part, just a laptop.

Drinks and snacks provided. Drop in at any time.

Come along to find out more. Buffet from 5.45pm. All welcome.

Hall Bower Art Group

Little ditty by Fred Raine:

The Hall Bower Art Group was formed some years ago

To provide a place for local people to go

To share the joy of painting

A joy we hope never ends

But what is more important

It allows us to make friends

 

The Art Group runs every two weeks until 18th June 2019 when it finishes for the summer break. People are welcome to come along, enjoy painting, and meet like minded people.
