A project to build a new village library has been given a cash boost.
Estate agent Yorkshire’s Finest has donated £6,000 to the Denby Dale Community Project (DDCP), which has plans to demolish the current Wakefield Road site and build a new facility.
The company, which has offices in Denby Dale and Kirkburton, raised the cash with a charity ball.
Chairman of DDCP Clr Jim Dodds, said: “They chose us as their charity this year as they wanted to help the community in which they are based.”
Clr Dodds said fundraising work to raise more than £1/4m was progressing well. But he said they were unlikely to start demolition work on the existing premises until the nursery school based there was found a new home.
He said: “It doesn’t seem right to start when children’s futures are at stake. It also gives us more time to raise the extra money we need.”
Kirklees Council has launched a consultation to decide whether or not the pupils should be transferred to Gilthwaites School.
It is hoped the decision will be made by the end of the year.
