Neighbourhood Walkabouts

Neighbourhood Walkabouts are days when we get local services out together to talk to as many people as possible, in your neighbourhood.

Your local Councillors get involved and we’re always looking for resident volunteers to help us point out the issues which are important to you.

You’d be surprised at how many things we can deal with on the day on the doorstep.

Some things take longer but take a walk with us and share your good ideas. The more local people join in the discussion the nearer we get to solutions.

Dates for upcoming walkabouts are shown below. We look forward to seeing you!

    Born and bred in Mixenden, left at the age of 6 or 7. Now aged almost 62, I am planning to come back in March 2017, to see just how much it has changed. My father, John, died there at aged 39, and I intend to look for his grave. Our neighbours were the Mullcaghey’s, a very large family of 15. We lived on a huge (I think) Council estate and walked through the fields to the local shop – trying to out – run the bull mainly. Wonderful memories, of a wonderful part of the country. I am so looking forward to going back, even though I know it will have changed beyond recognition, it is still the place I hanker after the most.

    The local junior school gave me my first taste of education, moving on eventually to Calder Valley High School – a new and massive (for the time) Comprehensive, with over 1,000 pupils.

    I have travelled all over the world in my long and happy life, but the old saying, ‘There is No Place Like Home’, was never more true in this case. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to return, but March 2017, I will walk the roads and lanes I once walked as a child and hopefully remember some of what I see.
