Penfolio: Another year, another 'ogmanay, another enormous raffle and nice slice of cheddar for Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team.

Thanks to all who came along, generously donated raffle prizes and, bought raffle tickets. Your good cheer and conversation made the evening seem to fly past.

Thanks in particular to Clare and Jeff (CnJnA) for organising the raffle - a job which year after year, they do far better than I ever did and to Daz (Jurassic Parkinsons) for putting me up for the night (now that I'm a visitor in my old hometown).

I think it's time to put this listing to bed and, perhaps we'll do this all again in 2019?

The Head of Steam
St Georges Square, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, HD1 1JB Tel. 01484 454533



Tuesday 9th January 2018 : 7:00PM - 11:00PM



The Head of Steam is a pub housed in the Grade 1 listed railway station buildings and, it may be accessed directly from Platform 1. The main entrance to the pub is from St. Georges Square.

Being well served by local and regional public transport links, you may choose to leave the car at home and take the opportunity to sample a few glasses of whatever tickles your fancy. That is of course, so long as you're not still suffering from the excesses of the holiday season.

Finding your way back home?

Train station, 0 metres.
Taxi rank, right outside the pub. You could literally fall out of the pub and into a cab.
Free on street car parking (after 6pm), 100 metres.
Bus station, 250 metres.

Those of us that enjoy our real ales will be well catered for as the pub has 10 well maintained hand pumps knocking out the good stuff. There's usually a selection of guest ales, guest lagers, bottles, cider and stouts too.

Food is served until 8:30pm. A menu is available online at the Head of Steam website and, includes soup, sandwiches, fish n chips, pizza, burgers, etc.


If Carlsberg did raffles...

Now for the most important bit... All those unwanted/unclaimed low value Christmas pressies, the ones that'll otherwise just sit in a cupboard, never again to see the light of day; bring 'em along and we'll raffle 'em off. Through your generosity over the last few years, we have made some sizeable donations to many worthwhile causes. Hopefully we can do the same again this year as we continue our support of Holme Valley MRT.
