Halifax Civic Trust hosted a meeting of civic societies from all over Yorkshire and the Humber called by the Yorkshire and Humber Association of Civic Societies.
Prizes in a competition to mark Civic Day, in June, were also awarded. Halifax Civic Trust secretary June Paxton-White received the third-prize certificate from association president Peter Cooper. The event, which drew delegates from nearly 43 organisations, was held at the Mereside, Shibden Park. They went on to visit Halifax town centre, the Halifax Minster and town hall.
