Menston Community Association meeting

MCA will be holding a meeting at 7pm on Wednesday, 27th October in the Wharfe Room at Kirklands (ground floor).  This will include the AGM when the annual report and accounts will be submitted for approval and officers appointed.

As always, all Menston residents (from both the Leeds and Bradford Council areas of the village) may attend and thus show support for our community.  However this year, with the continuing uncertainties, we would ask residents to let us know in advance whether they would like to attend in person, or by Zoom, by emailing mcaMenston@gmail.com

The agenda can be read here

New Website for Bradford Foodbanks

Inn Churches have launched a new website to act as a one-stop shop for food support in Bradford - https://bradfordfoodbanks.org.uk/

The new site allows individuals and referral agencies to find their nearest foodbank and how to get or make a referral and also lists meal provision for people who are homeless.

More information – including how to donate - is available on the Inn Churches website - https://innchurches.co.uk/2020/11/24/find-a-foodbank/ 

 

 A New Online Group - Being There

One of the by-products of the Covid lockdown restrictions is that people of all ages have felt loneliness and anxiety. St John’s has formed what is hoped to be a peer led support group called Being There – because everyone needs to know there is someone there.
