Twinning & friendship visits:

Our next formal exchange will be when a small number of us travel to Warstein to help celebrate 55 years of twinning between Warstein & St Pol (5th to the 7th April)

40 years twinning between Hebden Bridge  & St Pol will be celebrated in St Pol in 2019 (provisional dates 30th May to June 2nd).

The HBTS Annual New Year meal took place at the Stubbing Wharf Hebden Bridge on Sunday 27th January 2019. We had a full table and a most enjoyable time was had by all!

Other events:

The Blackshawhead Fête was on the 1st September 2018. The weather was fine, £92 raised and we talked to people about twinning.

The Mytholmroyd Gala on the 7th July was great. Fund raising was cut short by a certain football match - but it was a lovely day.

Maureen Dean's cream tea on Sunday 5th August was enjoyed by everyone. It also raised over £70 for the HBTS.

The Summer camp in Paratico from the 27th August to the 9th September was a great opportunity for strenghthening our friendship with Paratico in Italy. Kalifa Cuben, George English Burns & Erin Yates (from last year) travelled with Jane Jackson to teach the local children English. Kalifa, George and Erin were great representatives for Calder High and made an excellent impression.

We're just back from our informal exchange visit to Warstein for the 19th to the 21st October. We've booked our flights with Eurowings for Friday 19th and Monday 22nd. Contact us for further details.

Our 2018 AGM took place on Monday 12th November.  Click here for a copy of the minutes.  

The next fund raising event will be a stall at Midgeley Fete on the 8th June.

The Pie & Pea Supper on Friday 22nd February 2019 was great fun. Pat Fraser delivered a masterful quiz, and David Parry's pie and peas delicious.
