So what’s on the diary today as we look forward to another busy day in Calderdale?

The Courier reporters and photographers will be covering a whole range of your events - but, as always, if something is happening near you please let us know all about it.

Sportsman Danny Brooks has an unusual skill - we’ll be meeting him in Elland to find out why he’s a world beater.

Schools are hitting a high note as we start the festive recordings in our popular Songs For Christmas feature. Youngsters at All Saints’ Primary, Skircoat Green, will be performing today - and we want more schools to join in. Get in touch with us to register.

And roast beef is on the menu for pupils as Calderdale celebrates National Roast Dinner day. We’ll serve up the best pictures, from these and all the highlights of the week from across the district, in Friday’s Courier.

We’ll also be reflecting on the debate at Calderdale Council’s planning meeting where among the items on the agenda was the latest twist in the saga of the Casa marquee at Brighouse and the go-ahead for massive wind turbines at Ovenden Moor.

What do you think about it all? Give us your reaction to this - and any other issue you want to get off your chest.

Later this week it’s Children in Need day.

Manager Charlotte and her team at Hi-energy Health Club and staff at Maggies bar in Halifax are planning a wacky three-legged race on Friday to raise money for the appeal starting at 1.30pm from Hi-Energy. She got in touch with us to publicise her event and say thank you to all her members for their support. Good luck Charlotte from all of us at the Courier.

Please tell us what you are doing for Children in Need - or any other charity - and we will try our best to cover your event.

You can also find out why the staff at Toni & Guys have a passion for fashion as they joined other businesses in Halifax to give a boost to Overgate Hospice. All the details in Friday’s Courier.

If it’s happening in Calderdale we really want you to get in touch.

Send us your stories and send us your pictures so we can share your news, views, arts, entertainments and sport with the rest of our readers.
