Future of Denholme Mechanics Institute

Following Bradford Council’s decision on Thursday 23 February to go ahead with the budget plans the Mechanics Action Group are meeting on Monday 27 February and will inform people of any plans to take the matter forward.

Thank you to everyone who signed the petition of 950 signatures and to everyone who sent in or filled a Comments form online.

Denholme Town Councillor Jacqui MacFarlane, who was at the meeting on Tuesday 21 February said: “It is a sorry state of affairs that in the 21st century, we are saying we cannot afford to keep this invaluable resource open for the people of Denholme, particularly the elderly residents. They deserve better than this.”

  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. Just driven around the corner next to hoyles garage and they have removed the roadworks there.great except the road is an absolute disgrace there has been no cleaning of mud and stones and the tarmac that has been put over the roadworks is unbelievable how they can call that a road surface I do not know.
    As a motorcyclist this is an accident waiting to happen .

  3. Wondered if something could be done about the state of old road, mainly by the farm. It is very unsafe after the recent heavy rains and floods, not safe to walk or ride on
