Save Horton House Calderdale Council has decided to “dispose of” Horton House, Halifax’s Adult Education Centre. The decision was taken quietly with no consultation and no coherent alternative plan for future adult education provision in Halifax. More soon.

Fire Service Cuts Calderdale Save Our Services will be organising a public meeting on this in conjunction with the Fire Brigades Union locally. More soon.

TUC Demonstration
Calderdale Save Our Services took over 40 local people by coach to the TUC’s ‘A Future That Works’ demonstration in London on Saturday 20 October. In addition, the campaign put supporters including a wheelchair user in touch with each other so that they could travel to the demonstration together by train from Halifax. Morning Star article.

  1. I work at Horton House and although I am new to the area, I feel very strongly about the adult education it provides.
    How can it be ‘disposed’ of?
    Where do all the adult learners go to gain new skills in an environment that doesn’t feel like school?
    I shall be at the town meeting on 28th november hopefully with lots of support!
