I am now Chair of the organisation before that I was Vice Chair and before that Project Lead.
WHAT DO YOU GET INVOLVED WITH?
I was initially involved with gathering bits together for a CCTV project, this entailed finding suppliers, contacting Kirklees Council, communicating consultation plans. I have recently also coordinated a local art installation with the 2 local schools (King James’s School and Almondbury Community School) with positive quotes and messages all around the village. It was a real collaboration between different people and organisations..
