Road Safety Partnership tackles parking at Lee Mount School

On Wednesday 23 October 2019, partners from the Calderdale Road Safety Partnership attended Lee Mount Primary School after it was highlighted that parking outside the school was an ongoing issue and has been for some time.

The event was organised by Dan Marham, Ward Link Worker for the Ovenden Initiative following a meeting with Lee Mount Primary School headteacher Emme Ford and was supported by partners from West Yorkshire Police, CMBC Community Wardens and Calderdale Community Safety Wardens who were joined by students George and Jack.

The morning proved to be a success as the zigzag markings were kept clear enabling pupils to safely cross the road on their way into school in the morning. Small posters were fixed onto the school railings to highlight the dangers of parking outside schools and a larger banner was given to the school by the Community Safety Team which is now also on display on the railings.

Work will continue in the future as the Road Safety Partnership work on ways in which  issues such as school parking can be proactively dealt with and there is a full week of action planned from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd November 2019 at schools throughout Calderdale.

Shabby Chic workshop held at St Columbas Church

With the help of a £460 Warley ward forum grant, a shabby chic workshop was organized at St Columbas Church community hall. 10 people took part where under the guidance of a qualified instructor they restored different pieces of furniture.

Not only did people enjoy the social aspect of the workshop, they gained new skills and found the work therapeutic.

If you have any ideas that may need some funding then a ward forum grant  (up to £500) may be of benefit.

For further information on the grants please contact Rachael or Tony on 0300 555 0266.
