We would like younger people to be involved as town trail ambassadors just getting involved, socialising, talking to people on the walk, helping with road crossing etc. A good friendly experience and good for your CVs potentially too, not to mention the sense of history!!! It would lovely to hear from anyone who’d like to involved their class or interested students/pupils.

Following from the success of last year’s town trail Sunday’s walk offers another opportunity to hear (and contribute to) the stories and experiences that shaped Huddersfield’s Caribbean heritage. Join us to hear about the places and people associated with that history and the links that connect Huddersfield’s Caribbean and African descent communities to Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada, Carriacou and St Lucia -and elsewhere too! The tour will focus on histories linked to Sparrow Park, Water Street, Merton Street and the Spring Grove area, and Greenhead Park/Trinity Street and include stories from all over town of school, work, social life, music, church, shopping, hair and other issues of the day. The walk will include visiting the Antilles Club and finish at New North Road Baptist Church/Brian Jackson Centre.
(Please note the change of starting/finishing points due to the town being busy with crowds attending football at the Stadium on the afternoon of Sunday 14th May )
There will be another chance to join the tour on Sunday 8th October as part of Black History Month 2017.
