Making a short film…

Polly Thomas is a local drama director and am working on a short film about the Hebden Bridge area.

“The basis for the film will be short audio interviews with local people about living here and their views for the future. I can send more information, but does this sound of interest in principle? If there are any groups that meet regularly who might be interested, we could come and record them, or it would be great to advertise via your website”.

“Interviewees can be anonymous and we only need their voices – a photo is optional. The film will be screened at Nutclough Mill on 7th and 8th July then again at the Piece Hall in Halifax on 30th September and 1st October. it will also be available on websites and social media. The project is funded by Calderdale Council and Arts Council via the Landlines and Watermarks scheme”.

“Please do contact me at this email if you would like to discuss”.

Polly Thomas – 2 May 2017.

Network Rail – Calder Valley Route Upgrade – forthcoming work and information sessions

As part of the rail investment in the North, Network Rail are investing over £1 billion on targeted upgrades to the rail network, helping to support and grow the regional economy.

The Calder Valley Route Upgrade is part of this investment programme. The route upgrade will deliver faster services and improve connections between key towns and cities across the North.

As part of the upgrade plan, we will be carrying out track and signal upgrades along the Calder Valley route, this will pave the way for faster journeys.

We have already completed the upgrade to signals and track between Manchester Victoria and Littleborough. We are currently working on upgrades between Littleborough and Bradford Interchange.

From 19 March until 15 May 2017 (excluding Easter and Tour de Yorkshire weekends), we will be working weekends to renew and lower track in locations along the route. We’re working closely with train operators to communicate changes to services with passengers and advising passengers to check before you travel at www.nationalrail.co.uk

We understand that our work will also impact on communities (especially people who live and work nearby the railway); we will notify in advance of working, explain what work is planned and when we expect our work to be noisy.

We’re working with businesses, local authorities, media and politicians to make sure the general public know what is happening and when.

We are holding a series of community information sessions about the Calder Valley Route Upgrade; we would like to invite you to attend. Representatives from Network Rail and our contractors will be on hand to answer any questions about this planned work.
