Me & Cath found ourself Guests of The Commoners Choir at Hebden Bridge Trades Club tonight..
Never been "guests" before! Gold Tags and no pay ( we did buy a CD & teashirt afterwards..it only seemed fair..)
I  used to work with Mark Wyatt ( one of the 50 folk onstage tonight) Commoners Choir are rather brilliant.

I was a Samartian Volunteer for 7 years in Halifax. ( n.b.The Samaritans are a suicide support line)
You can read much more  about that here 
During my searches for this post I  also came across This   
wonderful video of 1950's Halifax.Included (17 minutes in ) is the Gala Parade through the town center  and at Manor Heath..Copyright prevents me from embedding here, but it's worth a view here http://www.yorkshirefilmarchive.com/film/civil-defence-exercise-etc
