Denholme Logo FINAL

Denholme Mechanics Institute

Plans are moving on for the community to take over the running of the Mechanics from Bradford Council from April 2018. A Community Asset Transfer is in progress and a Charity has been formed called ‘DMI Commuity Centre’  to help run the community venue. It has held its first Trustees meeting and a Management Committee has been set up for the day to day running. We will keep you posted.

Open Day

Thanks to all the groups and residents who attended on Saturday 10 February – it was a great afternoon. Thanks also to the ‘caterers’ who did a fantastic job!

Dog Fouling

Dog fouling – report it!

Whoever is responsible for dog fouling needs to take action or risk a fine. If you have witnessed a specific incident of dog fouling, please provide a statement including details of the date and time it took place and the name and address of the owner so that Bradford Council can issue the owner with an £80 fixed penalty notice.

You can report it here https://www.bradford.gov.uk/environme…/…/report-dog-fouling/

Thank you to all responsible dog owners who do clean up after their dogs!

  1. My grandparents Edward and Henrietta Southwell lived (I believe in Mary Street) in the 1950’s, he worked in a tannery I believe. I stayed with them for a while and remember going to Keithley school, I remember my grandad playing bowls in the park and also the railway

  2. Wonder if anyone had thought about putting a bench around the other side of the park .I walk my dog most days and she runs around with a couple of dogs we stay well away from the childrens play area .Also the football pitch . A bench would be very welcome by people walking dogs in that area .

Please talk to us!
