When Jean Smith of Holme Drive was approaching 70 she decided to celebrate her big birthday with a party for a few friends – 90 to be precise!
She organised her ‘do’ at the Vandals Rugby Club on Friday 22 September and made sure the night went with a swing.
Jean didn’t want any presents, asking instead for contributions to her two favourite charities. By the end of the night she had collected an amazing £120 for the Forget-me-Not Children’s Hospice and £110 for the Heart Foundation.
Jean was truly thrilled with the evening and wants to say a big thank you to everyone!
From 28 October 2012, the bus service 546 Halifax-Warley will operate via Hopwood Lane rather than Parkinson Lane. It will take the anti-clockwise route through Warley as it did prior to the change in 2010. The service will be operated by Centrebus.
