The next open meeting of Newsome Ward Community Forum is on Thursday 14th March 2019 from 6pm in the community room at Newsome High School, Castle Avenue, Newsome HD4 6JN. This is our Annual General Meeting, where we hear a review of the year and elect our directors for the coming year.

We’ll also be finding out about the Place Standard, which is a way of helping to get conversations going about any place (it could be your street, neighbourhood or town), by using some simple questions.

Come along to find out more. Buffet from 5.45pm. All welcome.
