Tonight i’m heading along to a meeting organised by my ward colleague Councillor Ashley Evans. We are hoping to establish a ‘friends of West View Park ‘ community group who could be involved in organizing events in the park and reporting issues and repairs.
If you are about do come along to a public meeting on Wednesday 4 December, 6pm at New Hope United Reformed Church, Warley Road, Hx2 0AD
Also if you would like to discuss any issues about the park do get in touch. When I stood for election I was very keen to sort out the war memorial. We located the plaques for this, but it was felt we would be unable to get funding for it as the priority had been given to renovating WW1 memorials ahead of the centenary anniversary. It would be really good if there was a community group to work with us and help try and access some of the other funding that is available.
If you want to get involved but are unable to attend please email your contact details to either: Councillor.Ashley.Evans@calderdale.gov.uk or firstname.lastname@example.org ring 01422 255402

I am intrigued to read Cllr Pillai’s comments about the Labour group running Calderdale Council. As we know, Labour does not have a majority of Councillor in Calderdale. The only reason that they can be said to be running the council is that, when it came to the relevant vote at the Annual Council meeting, […]
