Tree Planting at Beechwood Park

Members of the Friends of Beechwood Park group together with other park volunteers and staff from Calderdale MBC and North Halifax Partnership spent an enjoyable few hours planting saplings in Beechwood Park. There are a lot of fantastic residents who give up their time to do litter picking, dredging the pond and keeping the park clean and tidy. If this is something you would like to get involved with and want further information please contact Tony King on 0300 555 0266 or email him on tony.king@calderdale.gov.uk

If you use the park you will have noticed that improvements have been made to footpaths in the park, new steps have been installed, new benches also installed and repairs to the footbridge just below the pond. This work was carried out by the councils gardening team (who do a great job keeping your park in good order) but paid for through funds raised by the friends of Beechwood Park group.

If you are in the park and see any issues such as damage, flytipping, off road motor bikes please don’t hesitate to report it to the council or the police.

Parkruns in Calderdale

Winter is upon us and you may not feel like getting out and being Active Calderdale in the cold, but there is still a lot you can do in the garden. Being active will make you feel good physically and mentally and keep you warm too!

Another great way to be active with your friends, family and grandchildren is to take part in ‘parkrun’ and here’s a bit of information that might be news to you.

Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs all over the world. They are open to everyone, totally free, organised by a group of local volunteers, held in pleasant parkland surroundings and everyone whether young or old, male or female, fit or unfit, able-bodied or not is always welcome. It’s not about racing, it’s about running at your own pace.

We have 2 parkruns in Calderdale, one at Shroggs Park in Halifax and the other at Wellholme Park in Brighouse. Both start at 9am every Saturday. We also have a new Junior parkrun starting at Wellholme Park in Brighouse on Sunday 17 December at 9am. Junior parkrun is a 2k run for juniors aged 4-14 years old and will take place on Sunday mornings at 9am.
