A Hebden Bridge community arts group is celebrating after neeting a grant of £8,000.

The cash was awarded to Verd de Gris Ltd by NHS Calderdale in partnership with the Community Foundation for Calderdale and Voluntary Action Calderdale to deliver a range of creative sessions for older people across the area.

Jeff Turner, of Verd de Gris, said: “Our aim is to set the standard for creative engagement with older people here in Calderdale, using stimulating and engaging activities that invite new forms of expression, share learning and life-experiences and help re-engagement with the wider community.”
