Organiser Roger Benn said: “Thanks to help from Hebden Royd Town Council and CMBC’s Welcome Back Fund, we’ve been able to provide this fantastic opportunity of free fun for all during the school half term holidays.

“We’ve already started planning our main LUTV 22 winter event which everybody wants to see return to the hilltop villages and if at all possible we’ll organise other smaller LUTV events, like these ice skating ones, in-between now and then.

"LUTV was set up to help both the community and businesses alike within HX7 and that’s what we intend doing to the best of our abilities.”
