The Hebden Royd Town Council is assessing the demand for additional community space in Mytholmroyd - after a former community centre’s facilities have become available.

The town council has been offered the use of the former Calder Valley Club community centre, on Burnley Road and is now wanting to hear from anyone who may be interested in using the facilities.

With the recent closure of the Methodist Church, the town council said that they “recognise that there has been a reduction in the availability of community space in Mytholmroyd and we are keen to ensure that if the neccessary demand exists, the Calder Valley Club site will be retained for the benefit of the community.

They continued: “Equally, the town council is also keen to reassure people that it would only seek to add to existing provision if demand is sufficient. There is no intention to compete with existing community facilities in Mytholmroyd. The town council has written to them to seek their input in establishing whether there is a business case for additional facilities.”

The building consists of a ground floor reception/office, a large room with linoleum floor and a full kitchen.

The upper floor consists of a kitchenette with a carpeted lounge area and smaller side rooms.

There are also accessible toilets on both floors and a lift for disabled access between the floors.

The town council have suggested that the ground floor room could be suitable for a variety of activities or even a cafe and the upper floor would be useful for a range of activities.

Anyone interested in regular rentals for community activities, meetings or classes, occasional events or rental part of the building to run a business or social firm, are asked to contact Hannah Dobson at hannah@hebdenroyd.org.uk or 01422 842 181.
