Shelf & District Community Group


As you may be aware Shelf & District Community Group have been raising funds to upgrade the children's play area in Shelf Hall Park.  Funds have come from a Calderdale Council Small Grant, fund raising events, collection boxes in local shops and generous donations from local people, businesses and organisations.

In January 2016 we applied for a Landfill Trust Grant of £42,000 which would have transformed the play area.

Unfortunately we were unsuccessful in our application for the grant and therefore, in line with community consultation, the money we have raised locally is being used primarily to install a new climbing frame specifically for the use of younger children, plus the refurbishment / replacement of existing equipment. 

We are planning a low key event for the play area and the Mayor will be present to perform the official opening - more details to follow.  The date has been set for 17th September 2016
