Volunteering in Kirkheaton

There are numerous opportunities to share your skills and learn new ones by volunteering in Kirkheaton – cafe, library, gardening are just a few of them. Volunteer for just an occasional hour or more regularly. You will get to know more of your fellow Yettoners as well as getting the satisfaction of knowing you are helping others.

Contact info@yettontogether.org for more information about volunteering in the area

Some of our cafe volunteers – Mary, Pauline and Marjorie. They, and other cafe volunteers, raised over £2400 last year to help towards keeping the library and CC open

Liz, one of our library volunteers

The library is run by a band of about 15 volunteers who are supported by 5 hours of Kirklees staff time.

Local newsagents to retire

A message from Harish and Jo at Krishan’s Newsagents:

As many of you know, after almost 30 years, this will be our last week working at Krishan’s Newsagents. To all of the wonderful people whom we have had the opportunity to serve over the years – thank you.

The times shared, friendships forged and the moments which we have enjoyed have been an extraordinary part  of our lives. It’s now time for us to begin a new chapter.

Thank you for all your support and well wishes. Your custom over the years has meant a great deal to us, and hope you continue to support the new owners as well as all the local shops. We hope we can keep in touch in the future.

Harish and Jo.

Ed: It is sad to see them both go but we wish  Harish and Jo all the best  in their well earned retirement. Over the last thirty years they have generously supported the local community in so many ways – donations for raffles, advertising village events, selling YT calendars being just a few. They will be greatly missed.

Tour de Kirkheaton pictures wanted!

Awaiting the peloton – Excitement rises at the foot of the Cote de Kirkheaton!

Please stay on the official paths!

Caseys have expressed concerns re the footpaths and fencing around their landfill site at Laneside. A few areas have had the fencing trampled down (see photo) and walkers are walking on non designated paths. It is anticipated that work will soon recommence on the site so it is important that people keep to the signed designated rights of way across and around the site for their own safety.
