COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

EVENTS & ACTIVITIES

(Mary 2021)

 

The Coronavirus Pandemic has meant that our activities have been closed down since the middle of March last year with none of our regular events and activities taking place

 

As we move forward mass vaccinations have really got going and are progressing really well, leading to some optimism that we may see some resumption of “normality” during the year

 

 This could mean we may be able to consider re-starting the events and activities currently suspended at some point this year   

 

Coffee @ The Pavilion

Knit & Natter

Family Race Day

Community Litter Picks

Shuttle Eye Number 2 Shaft site clear up

Our New Lunch Club

GRANGE MOOR LUNCH CLUB 

(Fish & Chip Teas delivered to your home)

 

Whilst we have not been able to entertain you with a meal out at one of great local restaurants as they remain closed, hopefully re-opening on 17 May but with continuing restrictions, we have managed to provide food from our Lunch Club funds by means of our “Community Fish & Chips” take away meals delivered to your door by our volunteers

 

We provided 5 of these meals in 2020 delivering 231 meals with 125 home deliveries during the year

 

And so far this year we have delivered 158 meals with 74 home deliveries, with our latest delivery on 29 April with 42 meals delivered to 22 homes

 

We know how much you have appreciated these meals, and look forward to continuing these much-loved Fish & Chip teas from our very own Grange Moor Fisheries who provide such great support for these meals  

 

Our next delivery is planned for Thursday 17 June with no “primary recipients” as this marks our first anniversary of Community Fish & Chips. This will open for nominations and requests from Monday 31 May, closing at tea time on Friday 11 June

 

It is not our intention to exclude anyone from these meals, and whilst we give some “primary recipient” status at each meal, no one should feel excluded by this. We particularly welcome nominations from residents for others who, they feel, would welcome the delivery of one of the Fish & Chip teas.  

 

Thanks to resident nominations we are now reaching a wider range of our residents, who we hope can enjoy and appreciate the meals we are offering

 

This has only been only possible thanks to the grants we have been able to secure, and donations from local business and residents

 

The Community Association would, therefore, like to thank the following for their help and assistance in providing financial support for The Lunch Club and our Community Fish & Chips

 

 

Kirkburton Parish Council and our local Parish Councilors

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the kind donations from residents of Grange Moor, for which we are very grateful

KEY COMMUNITY CHOIR

 

The Key Community Choir is still getting people together to sing, despite lockdown still being in place. Choir will resume face to face as soon as it is possible to safely do so, but for now we still meet via Zoom, on the first Tuesday every month and new members are always welcome. There is no cost at all and everyone says that the singing is great for their emotional wellbeing as well as enjoying seeing their choir friends.

If you are interested then feel free to get in touch by emailing keyofgofficial@gmail.com

 

Graeme and Katie-Jo, who run the Community Choir from right here in Grange Moor, also do a 2 hour livestream music show every Saturday night on Facebook live. This is a fun filled live show and everyone is very welcome, as are requests. Many in the village already enjoy the weekly shows and if you want to join them simply check out @keyofgofficial on Facebook.
