I’m certain that the people of Calderdale and any visitors who have spent time here during our beautiful summer have been thrilled by the incredibly beautiful floral displays all over the area.

Even along the sides of roads in our villages, hanging baskets packed with blooms have been a real joy. Thanks must go to those who designed, planted, watered, cared for and sponsored these. 
You have all helped to make Calderdale a wonderful place to be in these last few months.
