The first Community Alliance meeting in Hall i'th 'Wood has been cancelled due to the weather conditions in Bolton.

It was expected to take place tonight (Tuesday, January 16) at 5pm at Green Way Community Centre Hall i'th' Wood, for residents in Bradshaw, Hall i'th 'Wood, and Harwood.

A spokesperson for the Community Alliance said: “We have regretfully decided to cancel tonight’s meeting with the weather conditions, and hopefully it can be held in the next three to four weeks.”

The meeting will be a chance for people to network with organisations and people in the areas who can help towards doing something to help the community, such as a litter pick, or a tree planting orchard.

The Halliwell Community Alliance launch meeting took place last week.

The Community Alliance in each area of Bolton has replaced area forums, where people gathered to talk about the issues in their areas and find resolutions to problems such as litter and sustainability.

The alliance programme is designed to put residents, businesses, and charities at the forefront of these issues and gives them a chance to make their town a better place.

The week of action will take place from January 22 till January 28 where schools, groups and organisations, residents and places of worship can still sign up to take part in the ward wide clean-up.

Each area has its own area co-ordinator that is on hand with advice, support and guidance on connecting with new people and learning how to be self-sufficient.

Follow the group on Facebook to keep up to date.
