Final farewell to People’s Park Festival

Volunteers and staff came together to say goodbye to the People’s Park Festival.

Staff and volunteers met up on Thursday to celebrate their hard work and success.

Over the last 15 years 4,000 people have attended the festival.

The organising committee for the festival folded after some staff retired.

Leftover proceeds from the group have been donated to the Calderdale Community Foundation to fund future events in the park.

A tree has been planted in the park to recognise the hard work of the people involved and a plaque will be put up in October.
