Rest or Play in HD8 area

The HD8 area is made up of collection of wonderful Huddersfield villages.  Clayton West, through Scissett to Denby Dale, via Cumberworth.  Then down to Shepley, squiggle through Lepton, Kirkburton and Highburton, into Emley and Skelmanthorpe and you’ve done the loop.

Just off the M1, we are equidistant from Huddersfield Town Centre, Wakefield and Barnsely, the HD8 area has everything you need and much much more.

We have high streets where you can buy the household food and other items, along with furniture, clothes, children’s toys.  Bike shops, tattoo artists and beauty parlours.

We have visitor attractions for everyone and just on outskirts of our boundaries we have national treasures such as the National Coal Mining Museum, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Cannon Hall Farm, Holmfirth and the Peak District.

We have churches, village halls and libraries, we have so many different groups of activity; whether it be amateur dramatics or sporting activities like football or cricket.

We have schools, and playgrounds and other play areas for children.

If there a business or service you are looking for, then our local business directory should be your first point of call.  Otherwise, our variety of social media channels with our engaged members of the community are there to recommend and make suggestions.

Whether you are looking for an exercise class or a crafting session.  A mother or baby group or somewhere to take the parents out for dinner.  Our free online events calendar aims to give you a selection of options, with contact details and links to the event organisers.

Stay up to date with the latest activities and developments in the area.  The HD8 Network News section offers space to local organisations and events to tell us their good news stories along with tips, advice and offers.

We have a number of different communities on social media.  Admittedly, Facebook is where most of the activity happens, with a Page and a number of topic focused groups.  We also use Twitter, Linkedin and Instagram.

Each month we hold a physical networking event for organisations, to help build connections and relationships in the local area.  Generally we speed network and listen to a speaker.
