Refugee week finds new home

Halifax Courier - - The Gift Of Life -

Refugee Week Calderdale and Calderdale Neigh­bours’ Day have joined forces to present a com­bined event.

Refugee Week Calderdale – Neigh­bours’ Day will take place on Sun­day June 15, from 11am to 4pm, at People’s Park, Halifax.

“Both events share sim­i­lar aims of bring­ing Calderdale’s di­verse com­mu­ni­ties to­gether to share in a fun, fam­ily day where people can cel­e­brate and learn more about what each com­mu­nity can con­trib­ute to Calderdale as a whole. So it seems like a nat­u­ral ‘mar­riage’,” said Refugee Week Calderdale’s Au­drey Smith.

Af­ter the clo­sure of the Piece Hall, Calderdale Neigh- bours’ Day was look­ing for an al­ter­na­tive venue, while Refugee Week Calderdale was seek­ing to de­velop a larger scale event than pre­vi­ously.

The event will fea­ture live en­ter­tain­ment show­cas­ing lo­cal talent, a com­mu­nity mar­ket place, plus lots of in­ter­ac­tive sport, and art and craft ac­tiv­i­ties for all ages.
