Over 130 people joined Melvyn and I at the annual Civic Ball.  The newly furbished The Venue was superb. The ambiance, layout and design made for a wonderful evening. We had visiting Mayors and Chairmen from across the region as well as the Deputy Lieutenant and the Mayor of Calderdale.   The raffle raised over £800 thanks to all the local businesses who donated so generously. The band – Jump Jive and Wail – lead by John Wilson entertained the audience who danced the night away.  Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the event.
