We were delighted to welcome Lord Ahmad the Communities Minister to New Wortley Community Centre on the 8th October. His visit was in recognition of our work on the Our Place programme and in building a committed partnership involving local health practices, the local primary school and other services.
Lord Ahmads visit (minister for communities) was to recognise our Our Place project and to confirm that we are one of 20 Our Place projects to receive ‘Breaking new Ground funding’
Thanks to Andrea Riley (acting Head) and Karen Briggs ( Family Support manager) from Castleton Primary school for coming over with some of the school children and discussing some of the New Wortley Issues.
Also pictured is John Barker from WEA who is partnering with New Wortley to deliver a wide range of pilot adult education initiatives – Lord Ahmad then met the confidence building group.
Lord Ahmad stayed for around an hour and heard from a variety of local people, volunteers, service users, children, Our place partners and Sophie from Locality as well. Bill Graham gave a full briefing on the New Wortley area and our project plus the key issues we are looking to get to grips with.
