Mount Community Group will be based at Mount Methodist Church on Moorlands Road
I was delighted to attended the Mount Community Group Open Day at Mount Methodist Church.
Mount Community Group will be based at Mount Methodist Church on Moorlands Road. The group have been given funding for a year and their constitution was recently approved by Kirklees Council.
The new community group will aim to support and deliver local opportunities, activities and projects which will build on the consultation undertaken by the group, following a written survey which was sent to residents in the area.
Mount Community Group will work closely with Mount Forum, a community group who meet every two months to identify and tackle issues and problems affecting local residents, through collaboration with local councillors, residents and local agencies.
Cllr Burke said:
“I’m delighted that Mount Community Group is now up and running. The consultation undertaken by the group was really positive with a lot of responses, and the feedback will help to shape the initiatives and activities that the group will seek to support and deliver.
The group is continuing to consult with local people to ensure that local needs are reflected in the aims and objectives of the group. I hope that the community group can have a role in improving local services for the community it represents, strengthen local decision-making and work with local groups and agencies to support improvements in the community.”
Vincent Dorrington, Mount Community Group’s Acting Chair, said:
“Mount Community Group’s aim is to do what is on the tin. We want to bring local people together in order to meet their needs and interests. Our hope is to make the community more active and make people aware that their skills and contributions will benefit everyone.
In helping to establish Mount Community Group and for offering assistance, a special thank you has to be given to Mount Methodist Church, Kirklees Council, Moorlands Primary School, Huddersfield Local History Library, Cllr Cahal Burke and Alan Jones from Mount Forum.”
