Kirklees Council supported volunteers from Pride in Linthwaite to talk to local citizens about what life is like in Linthwaite now, and how they’d like it to be in the future. We used a tool called 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.
Volunteers from Pride in Linthwaite, staff from Kirklees Council and one of the local councillors talked to groups, individuals and businesses. The discussions took place in community venues including drop-in events at Ruddi’s Retreat Cafe, at local groups such as Linthwaite Methodist friendship group and the 2nd Colne Valley Scouts, and on the streets in Linthwaite.
