Families can stay in barn

Disabled children and their families can now enjoy short breaks in a converted barn at the picturesque Jerusalem Farm campsite, near Booth.

It has been specially adapted by Calderdale Council which secured funding from the Department for Education’s “Aiming High for Disabled Children” programme.

Disabled children, young people and their families have been involved in the design and development of the barn and several have already stayed there.

The Mayor of Calderdale, Nader Fekri, will officially open the premises on Wednesday afternoon.

“Thanks to the valuable input of the children and young people, and their parents and carers we have been able to create something which will be of enormous benefit – giving families the opportunity to enjoy a well-deserved break and spend valuable time together.

“We would also like to acknowledge the help from Calderdale Parents’ and Carers Council which has supported this project throughout,” said Coun Fekri.
