Your Courier, your day

Roast Dinner Day at Holy Trinity Primary School, Halifax.
Roast Dinner Day at Holy Trinity Primary School, Halifax.

So what’s on the news and sport menu today as we look forward to another busy day in Calderdale?

It’s a new era for West Yorkshire as we go to the polls today to choose a police commissioner for the county. A Calderdale councillor is among the candidates.

We’ll be at the count tomorrow in Huddersfield to bring you all the results.

Yesterday it was roast dinners for schools around the district, including youngsters at Trinity Primary School, Halifax, who were joined by the Mayor and Mayoress of Calderdale John and Janet Hardy, for lunch - and today another politician, Calder Valley MP Craig Whittaker, will be back in class with youngsters at St John’s Academy, Clifton.

The Children in Need appeal takes place tomorrow and ahead of the big day 30 parents and 30 children will be making Pudsey Bear bandanas and decorating buns at Hove Edge Bowling club this morning. Thanks to Elaine Bridgestock for telling us all about it.

Claire O’Connor also sent an email to to tell Courier readers about an event at Babyballet in Halifax tomorrow where the youngsters will be dancing in pyjamas for Children In Need. At 11am on Friday, Pudsey Bear will be making a visit to join in a few dances with their very own Twinkle the babyballet bear.

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. Catch tomorrow’s Courier too for more details on the fundraising around Calderdale.

Tonight our attention turns to business where we will be marking the achievements of companies large and small, industry and commerce in our prestigious 2012 business awards ceremony. The black tie dinner will be held at The Venue, Bowers Mill, Barkisland. Don’t miss the coverage online at and our special souvenir pull-out with loads of pictures from the event in the Courier next week.

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

We’ll also be reflecting on the big issues of the week in tomorrow’s Courier, such as the latest on the Halifax Central Library re-development and the plan for huge new wind turbines at Ovenden Moor. Plenty of you are responding through our Your Say letters pages or commenting online. What do you think about it all? Please give us your views and reaction on these and any other issues you want to get off your chest.
