Join us to network with like-minded people who also support CFFC. This networking event is for donors, businesses, and not-for-profit organisations.

Join us at Lanika Restaurant in Halifax, on Tuesday 16th July 2024 for this month’s CFFC membership networking event kindly sponsored by the 51st Pellon Scout Group.

We’ll start with open networking from 12:30 pm, followed by a delicious buffet lunch at 1:00 pm, and then an update on what’s happening at CFFC and an introduction to the multi-award-winning 51st Pellon Scouts.

This is a free event to find out about how you can support CFFC and get involved in making Calderdale a nicer place to live.

To make this event more diverse, and to maximise the value of networking, we ask that no more than 2 people from each organisation attend.

Walking Around Calderdale

July 2024

Our next walk will be on Friday 19th July at 10.00 am. Starting at the free Yorkshire Water carpark (HX7 5TD), it’s a gentle walk around the reservoir before a steep climb on a moorland path takes us to Stoodley Pike, where we’ll be rewarded with views across Calderdale and to Lancashire. Then we’ll head back through woodland to the old Cragg road where we started.

The What3Words for the carpark are ///rocks.chops.storybook which will navigate you to the precise location.

See the poster for more details.
