What will be taking place in St George’s Square?

On Friday 28 July 2017, at 12:15pm, there with be a variety of activities happening, along with music throughout.

West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service:

Not only will we have the firefighters, who are there to talk about the importance of balance in their jobs – we’ll also have their fire engine too, so you can take a look around the large vehicle to see just what it’s like when they’re out battling fires.

Locala Community Partnerships:

Our friends over at Locala will also be attending, so you get to talk to a real falls prevention practitioner and find out exactly what they get up to.

Mayor of Kirklees:

Cllr Christine Iredale will also be attending in her Mayoral role, so why not talk to Christine about falls prevention week, or grab a selfie with her?

Games we’ve ‘Comoodle-d’:

While you’re talking to our guests, we’ve also got a fun game of GIANT JENGA you can play with, thanks to our sharing service, Comoodle.
