In April, after many years, Hemsworth and District Partnership (H&DP) had to leave 28 Close Street, a terraced property owned by Chevin Housing, which had been used for the last few years as a community house.
All good things come to an end, but this left the group seeking alternative premises. Hemsworth Town Council agreed to let us use 1 Bank Street, their old council building, at peppercorn rent. This provided a bigger accommodation giving the group opportunity to help more groups to set up as independent groups under the umbrella of the H&DP charity.
On September 28 from 10.30am until 1.30pm the group will be holding an open day for you to come and take a look at the projects we have done in the past and what the community would like to do in future. H&DP has the skills to help groups/individuals wanting a hand to start up on their own. The centre will be used as a community hub, bringing it back to life so people can enjoy the building as a community facility.
Any commissioning work from your departments or utilising the venue for meeting rooms will assist with sustainability.
An open forum meeting for residents and networks will be held on the morning of the last Saturday each month. At these we invite the town council and police to give updates and answer queries. District Councillors also attend and hold a surgery to take on people’s concerns and problems.
H&DP looks forward to your attendance.
