Venue

If you want to change your venue or add a new one please use the postcode / street name field to see a list of venues. This should cover all venues in Kirklees, but if you can’t find the venue you need please contact Community Directory, and we will advise or add it for you.

  1. Beaumont Park, Beaumont Park Road, Beaumont Park, Huddersfield
    1. All key services are accessible. Wheelchair access
    The upper part of the park on the main drive is ok for wheelchair access but the lower parts are steep and the paths are difficult. The visitor centre has wheelchair access and a disabled toilet but is only open at certain times.

News

You can add or amend news items, and the date will change automatically, although you may need to go back into the entry to see the revised date.

To delete a news item, there is a delete option when you press Edit. This currently works only on the headline, and the text field needs to be saved with at least one digit in it, e.g. ‘x’. Alternatively, you can replace it with a new item.

Nature's Footprints Wins Award

  1. Nature's Footprints Wins Award
  2. Jo Liversidge from Nature's Footprints has been awarded a Best of the Best Forest School Award.

    Jo received the award from Sarah Blackwell of Archimedes Training, the biggest Forest School training company in the UK, at a ceremony in Sheffield. Jo was nominated for the award by her friend, Lisa Holmes, who has seen her to grow her idea into a fully-fledged Social Enterprise over the last 2 years.

    As part of her nomination Lisa said, 'Jo is a fantastic and inspirational Forest School leader, and her passion and enthusiasm for Forest School is infectious. In a very short time she has established herself as an essential part of the local community, working with many of the local schools and Children's Centres, children and families. She is a member of local groups, such as the Youth Action Group, and has built up a strong working relationship with the Friends group at Beaumont Park where she is based. She has even been involved in setting up a local network for the growing number of Forest Schools and Forest School practitioners. And on a personal level she has reawakened my love of the outdoors (to the extent that I have just completed my Level 2 training!) and given my daughter, and other children like her who struggle at school, a place to be themselves and show their strengths.'

    Jo said, 'It was a lovely evening. Forest School is still quite a new concept, but it's always great to be recognised for the work that you're doing'
