Make a difference in your neighbourhood

Published 14 July 2014

People from Normanton and Featherstone still have time to have a say in shaping the future of their communities.

WDH has seven Neighbourhood Panels across the district, each made up of local representatives.  

We are looking to recruit new members for the Normanton and Featherstone Neighbourhood Panel. You don't have to be a tenant. 

WDH Area Manager Joanne Smith urged residents to add their voices to the panel. Joanne said: “You’ll be able to contribute to improving the services we provide, helping to influence and shape the way the Normanton and Featherstone areas develop.

"You need to be available for about half a day per month."

Anyone interested in joining the Normanton and Featherstone Neighbourhood Panel can contact Tenant Involvement Officers Tom Lawton and Claire Secker on 01977 788376 or 01977 788384 for further information or email neighbourhoodpanels@wdh.co.uk
