Mrs Heather Hartwell, secretary of Luddenden Foot Community Association said “We are delighted to have obtained funding to provide new equipment for Holmes Park. The new play area is a way of showing the community that we want both the Park and the Civic Centre to become a hub for all who live in Luddenden Foot and its environs. Since taking over the management of Luddenden Foot Civic Centre in April 2013 the Association has increased the number of activities taking place in the building and are currently working on plans to make the Civic Centre more accessible by providing a through floor lift, toilets suitable for people with physical disabilities and a café. Mrs Hartwell added we want the community to get involved by attending activities and becoming volunteers or trustees of the Association. With assistance from the community we can make the Civic Centre a place that the everyone is proud of”.
