A well-known Colne Valley day centre for adults with learning difficulties and physical disabilities is to hold an Easter Fayre.

The event at Waves in Slaithwaite will feature stalls, food and drink, Marsden Swing Band and DJ Scouse Trap.

Stalls already confirmed include jewellery, face-painting, scented wax melts and the Edward Foundation Bulldog Rescue.

The money raised will be split between the day centre and the Making Waves charity which supports Waves members.

The event on Saturday, April 1, starts at 11am and finishes at 4pm and will be at the Waves centre which is next to the Handmade Bakery on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal towpath.

Waves is one of the most innovative day centres in the UK. It helps people aged 18 and over with learning and/or physical difficulties lead full lives with activities including performing arts, baking, making music, arts and crafts, virtual reality games, a climbing wall, swimming, walks, horticulture in the Waves garden, caring for animals and sharing what they do on social media.

The members also get the chance to go on exciting holidays to places such as Center Parcs and trips to the Isle of Barra in Scotland. It also provides respite care and overnight breaks when members’ families face a crisis.
