Newsome Ward Community Forum brings together the people of the Newsome area. We meet to discuss issues of interest and concern, and we work together to improve our local area and provide opportunities for community participation. We run projects in response to the interests of Newsome residents. Our group is run entirely by volunteers.
Our bi-monthly public meetings are an opportunity to share information, get support and raise issues of concern. We also have speakers on a wide range of topics – anything from money management to renewable energy. Our meetings are attended by residents, community groups and representatives from local services (such as Kirklees Council and West Yorkshire Police).
Our meetings are on the 2nd Thursday of January, March, May, July, September and November in the Community Room at Newsome High School. Meetings start at 6pm, with a buffet available from 5.45pm. Everyone is welcome.
Our community projects and partners include:
- Newsome Out To Play
- The Newsome Mills campaign
- Hey Green project
- Newsome Kiddies’ Christmas Party
- Newsome Ward Timebanking
- Growing Newsome
