GRANGE MOOR PROJECTS

 

The Grange Moor Community Association aims to promote and develop a community spirit across all residents and businesses of Grange Moor
The Community Association is a “not for profit” organisation and all money raised is used to fund projects for the benefit of everyone living and working in Grange Moor


DEFIBRILLATOR

 In 2016 we installed a Defibrillator for emergency use in the village. We were able to secure a matched grant from Kirkburton Parish Council which enabled us to purchase, install and run training and explanation evening. The defibrillator is sited on the rear wall of the Bowling Club pavilion

In the event of an emergency and access being required, ring the emergency services. Tell them where you and they will give you an access code to open the box and withdraw the defibrillator. They will advise you to stay on line and talk you through the use of the machine until the ambulance arrives. There is also an audio commentary with the machine to assist











GRANGE MOOR MINIATURE MEMORIAL PARK

This is situated on Briestfield Road next to the Bowling Club and Green
It has fallen into an unkempt state after years of not being used
This is what it currently looks like.

 
We want to bring this back to life with seating, and new trees and plants to provide a peaceful haven where you can spend time relaxing in the quiet surroundings of the newly refurbished Miniature Memorial Park.

 We are currently (February 2017) drawing up the plans for this exciting new project which we feel will be  somewhere for residents to take time out and relax in peaceful surroundings in the centre of our village

We would like to make this a memorial garden. If you would like to sponsor a seat or a bench in memory of a loved one please get in touch and will see what how we can do this

 








 (BUS) SHELTER

The Shelter on Liley Lane, across the road from the Church, has been there for a long time and some may have memories of this being used as a bus shelter for children waiting for their bus to take them to school

The shelter has long fallen out of use and is now in a sad state of poor repair and could be dangerous if anyone was to climb onto the roof. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS




 






 

We have been discussing what we can do with this with Kirklees Council for nearly 18 months now. Unfortunately there are issues relating to ownership, maintenance and insurance liabilities that have proved more difficult than we anticipated. A meeting of the Association on 21 February 2017 concluded that we could not continue with this project. A unanimous vote confirmed our position not to proceed any further. Consequently the Council will now be coming along to demolish the structure


HOW CAN YOU HELP 

These projects cost money to develop and complete

The Summer & Christmas Fayres we have run have helped to raise funds, but this will not be enough to fund the above projects, as well as other future projects that we may look at.
We have to look at other ways of raising money to make things happen
We will be applying for grants from the local and parish councils to assist with this but will still need to raise money ourselves to make things happen
We welcome individual donations. If you would like to help us with this, please get in touch to discuss how this can be done. We will be really pleased to have your involvement with this
As mentioned above we will be pleased to consider requests to place a “memorial” bench in the refurbished Miniature Memorial Park, please get in touch – see our contact page for details

If you run a business would you like to become a sponsor for a project or a village activity and help us cover the costs of the works that we feel we need to undertake to provide benefits for all who live and work in our beautiful village



WE WILL LOOK TO KEEP THIS PAGE UPDATED TO KEEP YOU IN TOUCH WITH DEVELOPMENTS SO COME BACK AND HAVE A LOOK LATER
