Tales from the Bench

Tuesday 11 February 2020 at 7.30pm.

Retired Magistrate and former Bench Chair, Eileen Marchant MBE JP, will present a personal insight into life on the Bench including a brief history, approach to sentencing and a few anecdotes.

Eileen, who served on the Bench from 1987 until her retirement in 2015, spearheaded the amalgamation of Dewsbury and Huddersfield Magistrates’ Courts to form the new Bench for Kirklees.

She received an MBE from the Queen at Buckingham Palace in 2014 in recognition of her work and services to the community.

Join us to learn about the working life, stories and events of one of Huddersfield’s most eminent women.

‘Les’s Dance’ Evenings

Monthly social dance sessions organised by Brockholes residents, Les and Pauline Bailey. The evenings attract an average of 26 people and comprise popular sequence, ballroom and latin dances to song and instrumental music. The popularity of these evenings has grown by word of mouth and they are suitable for those with a reasonable command of the basic dance steps.

Les said, “This has become a social event for those who love to dance and enjoy a friendly and relaxing evening. We ensure there are a range of dances to suit all tastes including waltz, tango, swing, quickstep and even six styles of rumba. For those who have been tempted by the popularity of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ this is a chance to dance, meet friends and have a good time”.

The admission charge is £4 and people can bring their own drinks.
