Our Next Open Meeting: Tuesday 25th October 2022

Our next Open Meeting will be on Tuesday 25th October 2022. We’d love you to join us for this friendly, sociable get together which is free to attend, includes a free buffet lunch and where you can also claim your travel expenses!

We’ll begin by enjoying a relaxed buffet lunch with you, before moving on to our familiar questions and answers sessions and presentations.


So far, we have two guests joining us in October.

  • Ian Gledhill who is the Electoral Outreach Officer and will update us on elections in the area.
  • Laura Beesley who is the Active Calderdale support worker for VAC. We have signed up to the program
    with Laura’s help will be looking to encourage members to get more active in ways that work for them.

We will also make time to chat as a group and to meet you all one-to-one, so you can share any private issues you might want to discuss with us. You are welcome to come along just for the lunch and a chat, or to stay on for the main meeting afterwards. We also welcome anyone who just wants to come for the meal and a chat!
