It was fun in the sun for young and old as families enjoyed a community fun day in part of north Halifax.
Dawn and Danny Hartley of the Community Support Services in Calderdale launched the grand opening of The Addy - formerly the adventure playground - in Mixenden.
The opening was celebrated by welcoming the local Mixenden community for a fun day which was a real success, attracting more than 250 visitors.
The Addy is situated just off Mixenden Road, across from the Holy Nativity Church and is the Community Support Services’ latest project which provides an employment centre for those with learning and physical disabilites, offering support and help in their preperation for employment.
Upstairs of The Addy is home to a dance hall, offering dance and drama workshops to all members of the community.
Dawn aims for the project to “raise awarness of disabilities” and “merge the community together”.
She is already thrilled with its support for local employment by recruiting 15 new employees.
Members of the Mixenden community took part in a range of activities during the fun day, from sports activities and Zumba dancing to balloon model-making and face painting.
Overall, Dawn and Danny said they were delighted with the event.
