People make places great. We all have a stake in the towns, villages and communities of Kirklees.
A family friendly day highlighting the importance of light pollution, environmental kindness & the need to support each other. With food, drink, live music & stalls. Also as she wished, celebrating the life of Mandy Taylor MBE who passed away in Dec 21. Leaving behind her legacy to #BeMoreMandy a bid to raise valuable funds for underprivileged children whilst spreading the message ‘You can’t add days to your life, but you can add life to your days! One of the children we will be helping is local girl Eden Smith & supporting her campaign - ‘Eden’s Fight Against Cancer’ The day will culminate as we endeavor to turn as many lights as possible off in Huddersfield. Allowing everyone to enjoy the night sky with little light pollution, raise awareness of what this means to our environment & give people the opportunity to join many astronomers to look at our sky in awe. Against the backdrop of our iconic Victoria Tower an area we should be proud of & promote in the best 'light' possible.
