Locals flocked to the relaunch of a community cafe in Oakes.
Seasons, a non-profit community group, re-launched its Community Centre Café.
The group had carried out renovations there after receiving a £2,000 grant from Huddersfield Area Committee.
The community centre is based in the old caretaker’s building at Willwood Avenue, next to the Reinwood schools.
It is run by volunteers, including local parents.
The grant enabled them to get new signs, tables and fridges.
The cafe is open to the public every Friday morning during term time.
The community centre also offers after school clubs, educational courses for parents, meeting room and event space, knit and natter and surgeries with the local police.
Clr Cahal Burke, who helped Seasons secure the renovation
Local councillor Cahal Burke, who helped Seasons secure the renovation funding, was at the launch event.
He said: “Local community centres like Seasons are important.
“(This is) because they provide a place where people can access resources, learn new skills and make connections with other people living in the area.
“The Community Café will provide a place where local residents know they can come each week and be certain of a warm welcome and friendly chat.
“Social isolation is terrible problem for people of all ages and I fully support more communities starting up similar initiatives in their own areas.
“A thriving community centre can really make a difference to people’s lives and I fully support the work Seasons are doing in the Reinwood area.”
