Cllr Lynda Cromie Donates £250 to Queensbury Performing Arts

QPA DONATION

Hi Stuart,

Having seen the recent Cinderella pantomime and all the hard work that went into it I wanted to make a small gesture re a donation of £250.

Kathryn Halford (QPA treasurer) and Sue Dickerson’s sister Pauline and co-writer of the panto acceped the check on behalf of Sue in her absence.

When I say seen the panto I only saw snip its as I was working with the other volunteers in the kitchen.

I saw Paul’s brief appearance with you on stage and thought the add lib  from you both was very funny.

I understand one member of your small group wasn’t too happy.

Paul and I can’t wait till next year,  everyone we speak to says how

Kind regards Lynda

QCP Walking Group – Daffodil Walk Sunday 22 March 2015

Members of the Queensbury Community Programme attended the Marie Curie Daffodil Walk at Bingley on Sunday 22nd March 2015. We did not complete the 6 mile walk due to the beautiful warm weather. We extended the walk to include the outskirts of Keighley at Thwaites, East Morton and the Five Rise Locks. This made the walk 10 miles in length.

Marie Copley – Moving From Queensbury – Cllr Lynda Cromie

Dear Councillors

Just a quick note to let you know we will be implementing the reduction of Ward Officers in Bradford South from 4 to 3 during the coming month.

To enable us to adjust to three Ward Officers in Bradford South, Ash has kindly agreed to move out of the area where he has worked since 2002.

I have very much appreciated and valued the support I have received from Ash since I undertook the Area Coordinator role in November and consequently I will be sad to see him leave.  He will be based half time in Bradford East and the other half within Safer and Stronger Communities.

There will be a transition period between now and the end of April when Ward Officers will be handing over their workloads to each other.

The following are the pairs of Wards each remaining Ward Officer will be supporting from the 1st May:

Great Horton and Queensbury Wards  –   Mohammed Taj

Tong and Wyke Wards                      –    Rada Mijailovic

Royds and Wibsey Wards                 –    Marie Copley

Please let me know if you want any further details.

Regards

Mick Charlton

Hi Mick,

Thank you for this info.

Marie, Taj, Rada and Ash are a credit to the CBMDC,  the hard work and dedication they have given to elected members and the communities in which the work is recognised by one and all.

 

It has been great working with all of them over the past 8 years.

Lynda and I would like to wish Marie all the best in her new role and also welcome Taj back to Queensbury it has been a life changing experience working with both of them.

Marie will be sadly missed.

Kind regards and Blessings Paul n Lynda

Subject: Re Invitation to information session for Community Asset Transfers

Colleagues

 

I wondered if you may be able to send out to your mailing lists of voluntary and community groups in your areas the details below and invitation to attend an information session about Community Asset Transfers.

This session will be focussed on sharing information about the Councils process for expressing interest and for formally putting a request in for a Community Asset Transfers and will detail what happens after and EOI is received and the decision making process / timeframes etc. This has already been circulated to the 19 groups who expressed interest in finding out more during the Youth Service Buildings Review, and it is to be sent to those who were interested in Childrens Centres for which there are also a number that are to be considered for exploration of “Alternative Estate Management Arrangements”. There is also expected to be some press coverage inviting groups to attend and find out more details so I thought it may be useful to also send out across your mailing lists so organisations have opportunity to get the factual details about the CAT process.

Thanks

Heather

 

Hello

In the Autumn I was in contact with a number of voluntary and community sector groups whilst undertaking the Youth Service Buildings Review. This review is now completed and the recommendations and next steps have been agreed with the Council Executive. As a result I am now exploring the options for alternative estate management arrangements for a number of Youth Service properties, and colleagues in Early Years are also exploring this some of the Children Centre properties in the District. Part of the considerations of Alternative Estate Management arrangements could include consideration of Community Asset Transfers of some of the properties.

 

During the Review there were a number of organisations who expressed interest in finding out more about the Community Asset Transfer process, and in response to this I have now arranged an information session to which I would wish to extend an invitation to other voluntary and community sector groups.

During the Information session we will share the details of the Council‘s Youth Service buildings and Childrens Centre buildings, including those that were identified for exploration of alternative estate management arrangements. We will share the details of how organisations can make expressions of interest and proceed to formal applications for Community Asset Transfers. Colleagues from Early Years and the Councils Estates Team will be in attendance and there will be opportunity within this session to ask any questions you may have in relation to Asset Transfers and the process.

The information session will run on Monday 30th March at 5pm at Future House (BD4 7ED) – Conference Room D.

 

Please can you confirm via email if you wish to attend and numbers we can expect for the session.

Many thanks

Heather
