Menston Community Association


Thanks to all those that attended and contributed to our first MCA meeting for a while on Wednesday, 27th October 2021. It was great to see people in the flesh again as well as having some people join us on-line; also good to see people attending for the first time.  Topics covered included improvements in the park/recreation ground; an update on airport matters; news from the Climate Action group including Main Street and the Big Green Week; great news about Light Up Menston’s plans for December 4th at Kirklands; Menston in Bloom’s plans to start a new group on Wednesday evenings and how they are involving (very) young residents; Remembrance Day and Sunday 14th services, and some initial thinking about how we can come together as a village to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year. As part of the AGM a new chairman was elected.  Fuller notes will appear in the Meetings section of this website shortly thanks to our newly elected secretary and charity trustee, Cheryl Thornton.

 The Menston Community Association (MCA) is a voluntary organisation with charitable status which acts as an 'umbrella organisation' for groups such as Menston in Bloom, Menston Business Association, the War Memorial Committee, Light Up Menston and Friends of Menston Park and coordinates interaction between these and other interest groups operating in the village.  During the lockdowns we have been supporting the Menston Helpline initiative, the Main Street consultation and helping the parish council with consultations regarding the improvements in the recreation ground.

All Menston residents over the age of 18 (from both Bradford and Leeds Council areas) are automatically members of the MCA and are welcome at our regular meetings (when they resume!).  Please click on Meetings, Agendas, Minutes for more details.
