A PLEA to get involved with the local council is made this weekend.
Kirklees Council launches a programme of events this weekend with an invitation to the public to ‘get involved’ in local democracy.
The first event – entitled ‘Get Involved’ – is the kick start to Local Democracy Week which runs from today until October 17.
The events of the week are designed to show local people how they can make a difference by working with groups throughout Kirklees.
At today’s launch event there will be 18 stalls in Huddersfield Town Hall showcasing a variety of ways that you can ‘get involved’.
Among the organisations represented at the Get Involved event (from 10am to noon) will be the Local Involvement Network, political parties, University of Huddersfield, magistrates, Youth Offending Team, parish councils, Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing, Metro and various services from within the council itself.
The groups represented at the event will be providing information on how people can get involved, whether they can spare two hours a month or two days a week.
