Hebden Bridge – Our Town - Annual Meeting

We are delighted to be hosting - once again - Hebden Bridge Partnership's main event of the year on Monday October 23rd at 7pm.  The meeting is in the Waterfront Hall.

The Partnership was established to be the ‘umbrella’ organisation for the town, linking the community and voluntary sectors with the town/parish councils and Calderdale council. The Management Board aims to represent all parts of local life, and they do have vacancies.  

Local groups and organisations have the opportunity to share their news and at the time of creating this event entry 35 are signed up.

During the meeting, there will also be a short session for the Partnership’s AGM business, including the secretary’s and treasurer’s reports and a proposal for the Partnership to collaborate more closely with the Town Hall (Hebden Bridge Community Association) in the future.

The Partnerhsip have also asked us to advise that there will be a table at the back of the Hall for groups and organisations to leave any literature.

Hebden Bridge Pumpkin Festival!
Tuesday, 24 October, 2017 - 10:00 to Sunday, 29 October, 2017 - 10:00
Free screening of ‘Hebden Bridge, a 700 Year Story (and how it was nearly Lost)’, 2015
Wednesday, 25 October, 2017 -
19:30 to 22:00

Join us for a free showing of filmmaker Nick Wilding’s 2015 film ‘Hebden Bridge. A 700 Year Story (and how it was nearly Lost)’.

All DVD copies of Hebden Bridge filmmaker Nick Wilding’s 2015 film ‘Hebden Bridge. A 700 Year Story (and how it was nearly Lost)’ ended up being destroyed as they floated down Market Street in the Boxing Day 2015 floods when the Monster Computers’ shop counter was submerged in over eight feet of water. Since then, copies of the film have not been available to purchase anywhere. The film originally featured twice at Hebden Bridge Picture House in 2015, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Calder Civic Trust, whose campaign helped to save countless local homes from being demolished. The film argues that there is still a need for the Calder Civic Trust today and talks to founder members of the Trust.


Nick is to re-launch the film with a free screening, together with donation boxes in aid of both the Memory Makers Project, aimed at helping people reconnect with their community and record treasured memories and the Hebden Royd Swimming Pool Association, which has just dug the foundations for its building.


The evening will start with another film celebrating a 50 year anniversary, with a screening of Nick Wilding’s short ’50 Years of the Pennine Way, the Hebden Bridge Loop’, which also features on the DVD. The main feature starts with the Tour de France in 2014, when 340,000 people lined the roads in Calderdale and follows the story of Hebden Bridge from its infancy in 1314 up to 1965, tracing the town’s expansion from a small hamlet through to its heyday as a manufacturing hub. Then it looks at its decline and features fascinating photos, courtesy of the Pennine Horizons digital archive of some of the unique buildings that were lost.


DVDs of the film will be available on the night with the proceeds benefiting the charities involved.
