The weather is on the turn and it’s that time of the year where you might be in search of a bit of light entertainment to take your mind off the fact that the nights are starting to draw in and Calderdale is getting chillier.

In search of some fun this weekend? Here’s what’s happening in Calderdale on Saturday:

For some mid-morning mindfulness, why not join David Wilson for a four-mile walk around Warley village. People are asked to meet in Luddenden village car park from 10am.
