you’ve been near a shop or supermarket lately you will have
noticed that the shelves are heaving with festive products and the
weather is starting to get the distinctly wintery chill. To mark the
start of the Xmas season community
groups and business associations across Kirklees are putting on switch
Friends of Oakwell
Hall are encouraging local people and visitors to vote for 'Adventurous
Oakwell’s Landscape Adventure' in the Aviva Community Fund. If we win,
we will gain a grant of £10,000, and we'll work with the local
community to get thoughts and ideas.

The Mayor of
Kirklees, Cllr Christine Iredale, has appealed to local people and
businesses to support the poppy appeal again this year. We've added her
letter to an article, and listed all the services that are taking
place in Kirklees.
The Hoedown begins as a withering dissection of Trump’s
America, but ends up being a celebration of Americana. There’s
stand-up, improvised ballads, cracking good musicianship, and
ultimately a hilarious, foot-stomping, kicking good time to be had by
all. Even if you don’t own a hoe. Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new
show begins its second leg of touring. There has never been a better
time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling
of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling
and deadly accurate as ever.
His BBC Four documentaries, most recently Rich Hall’s Countrier Than
You and Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match and BBC Radio 4 series
Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown have built him a new legion of
followers, as has appearances on Have I Got News For You and QI. But if
you’ve only ever seen Hall on TV, you’ve short-changed yourself.
