What’s happening?
Planters will be opened by Mayor of Hebden Royd, Cllr Carol Stow

Entertainment including:
Calder Valley Youth Theatre 4pm // Hebden Bridge Junior Band 5pm

Friendly faces will answer your questions, and free information will be available about how the planters help to slow the flow of flood water, the importance of riverside biodiversity, and how you can help by building your own.
