Chinwag Club stays open with WDH Community Grant11 July 2017

Published 11 July 2017
Members of the Chinwag Club are delighted to be able to carry on with their activities thanks to a grant of £1500 from WDH.   The Club, for people over 50, meets every Monday afternoon at Balne Lane  Community Centre. The Club provides an opportunity for older people to make friends and keep active. The group play bingo, cards and do chair based exercises. They often organise guest speakers and people to teach a variety of crafts and activities. Violet Chaltone, one member of the Club said: "It can feel really lonely when you live on your own. I enjoy coming to the Club for company. This is my regular activity to look forward every week." Chris Croxall, Tenant Involvement Officer at WDH said: "The area needs more organisations like Chinwag Club. Some of the members are disabled or on low income and the Club gives them a chance to socialise. By coming together regularly it improves the quality of life and avoids isolation. " The grant will help them to pay towards the annual rent and the cost of running the Club. The club always welcomes new members. If you would like to join or know someone who would be interested, please contact Balne Lane Community Centre on 01924 373558. Applications for WDH Community Grant Scheme will be open again on 7 August 2017. For more information please visit https://www.wdh.co.uk/OurCommunities.

Rivers community transformed by improvements

Published 22 June 2015

A £1.7m investment by WDH has given a community in Airedale a series of much-needed improvements.

The layout of the Rivers Estate made it confusing to navigate, so new signs were provided to make it more accessible for visitors and the emergency services.

Garages were renovated, block paving was laid, fencing was improved and measures were put in place to stop off-road motorbikes. Local children were involved in sculpting sessions which culminated in a sculpture being unveiled by Steve Rawson, WDH’s Managing Director – Operations, and Mike Dixon, Castleford Neighbourhood Panel Chair, at Humber Close.

A celebration at Swale Drive to mark the completion of the work included a cake, community activities and the offer of a sapling or shrub for residents to plant in their own garden. In total, more than 50 plants were given out.

 

Estate Manager James Sharpe said: “The efforts of the local community have made this celebration event really positive and extremely successful. We had a tour with the Neighbourhood Panel and a lady came out of her home and said ‘I want to thank WDH for listening to residents and transforming our estate’.

James added: “We really appreciate the support of local residents developing places where people feel proud to live.”
