Yetton Together

Yetton Together was established after a public meeting in June 2010 where people volunteered to canvass views of Kirkheaton residents in a variety of ways. Besides a steering committee there are many people who have volunteered for news letter distribution, coffee shop and/or library etc. More information regarding the work of this group can be seen on the Community Plan page of the web site. Anyone thinking of becoming involved should contact Trish Mellor, Chair –  01484 543 234 trish.mellor@yettontogether.org or come along to an Open Forum – a short meeting held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm at present in the library where residents can have their say.
