ARE YOU INVOLVED IN THE COMMUNITY? Despite the economic downturn in recent years we have seen it has really raised the local people of the communities’ spirits and brought a feeling of togetherness. Despite the hard times it has brought people together, enabled them to work together and help build a better future for the Pontefract community.
There are so many ways you can make a difference and get involved. Helping can be through so many different ways litter picking, local festivals, local events, local youth groups and local voluntary action. See the local council website for more information about how you can get involved.
