Stephen becomes July Champion

The monthly bowling competition on Wednesday, 10th July 2019, was an intriguing affair.

It was difficult to pick the eventual as many of the bowlers were playing extremely well.

Stephen had been in front from the beginning, but never enough to guarantee a positive outcome.

An excellent 'spare' in the last lane ensured Stephen would get his hands on the trophy.


Last month's winner, Gareth, hands over the bowling trophy.

Halifax Rock 'n' Roll Donate Again.

Our generous friends and long term supporters have done it again.

They have donated 2000 pounds to our charity.

A large portion of this lovely donation came from the sale of 2019 calendars. Thank you to everyone who purchased a calendar but our thanks go mainly to the committee and members. 



Community Foundation For Calderdale Grant

The Hive have been fortunate to receive a grant award of two thousand pounds from the Community Foundation For Calderdale. This was donated via the Kathleen Mary Denham Legacy. 

The grant will be used to partly fund and extend our guided exercise programme which is being taught by an experienced professional trainer.

On Monday, 20th May, 2019, the clients, volunteers and staff of The Hive were fortunate enough to be invited to visit the Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team.

After being treated to a lovely cup of refreshing tea, we were shown a film which featured many of the scenarios in which the rescuers may find themselves.

It included mountain rescue of injured climbers, assistance given in circumstances of fire and flood, the use of sniffer dog and the use of rescue helicopters.

We were told that there were approximately 50 volunteers at any given time who all received training for using the equipment and things like first aid. The volunteers have one training evening per week.

Most of the volunteers have a full time job and very understanding employers who will release them when an emergency is announced.

Lastly, the CVSRT people showed us their equipment and explained what they were used for and they gave us a practical display.

It was a thoroughly absorbing and informative visit and we were made to feel very welcome. Thank you to Dr. Rebecca Freeman, Alistair Morris and Malcolm Rogers for the film show, talk and display.

The service costs 35 thousand pounds a year to run but they receive no official funding and would be grateful for any financial help and support.

Lauren takes the wheel.
