Save Horton House

Horton House


Our Adult Education MUST STAY in Halifax Town Centre!
Calderdale Council MUST REVERSE its decision to sell Horton House!
Everyone wishing to be involved MUST BE CONSULTED!


Calderdale Council has decided to “dispose of” (sell) Horton House, Halifax’s Adult Learning Centre without even informing staff or students.

There was no consultation before this decision was taken.

There are no realistic plans for accessible lifelong learning provision for local residents in Halifax Town Centre. The council knows there’s no appropriate alternative – saving money is being given priority over maintaining essential community resources.



• Go into Horton House or ring 01422 392820 to express your concern.

• Write to Cllr Tim Swift, Leader, Calderdale Council, Town Hall, Halifax, HX1 1UJ or e-mail

• Write to The Editor, Halifax Courier, PO Box 19, Courier Building, King Cross Street, Halifax, HX1 2SF or e-mail

• Contact Calderdale Save Our Services, c/o 12 Rose Grove, HX7 5JG. Or email
