SCRAPtastic POSTCARDS by fairandfunky

Inspired by Bamforth & Co, Holmfirth's  famous saucy seaside postcard company, fairandfunky are working with several primary schools creating giant postcards made from recycled materials to be displayed in shop windows across Holmfirth during the festival.

Look out for these ‘picture perfect’ scenes reflecting the landscape of the Holme Valley – the hills, the mills and the River Holme which aim to encourage people to think about the beauty of our local natural environment and how we can all take action to protect our landscape.

fairandfunky are working with the following schools:

Hepworth Junior SchoolThursday 23rd May – am 

Kirkroyds Infant School Thursday 23rd May – pm 

Meltham CE School Thursday 6th June – am 

Holmfirth J&I School Monday 10th June – am (NABB)
