Mixenden Nature & History Trails

Monday 3rd June 2024

As part of the community-led investment in Mixenden, Active Calderdale has recently funded two walking trails: a History Hike and a Wild Walk. These trails, co-designed with the community, will be installed in the Hebble Brook woodlands by Summer 2024.

Nature Nurture CIC is a social enterprise focused on connecting communities with green spaces. They co-created the Hebble Brook walking trails with residents, incorporating their feedback into the design.

Safer, Greener and More Active: Calderdale School Streets Trial

Monday 7th September 2020

School drop-off and pick-up times can be stressful, congested and potentially unsafe, as everyone rushes to find the ideal parking spot right outside the school gates.
