Listen to Linthwaite

We asked you about life in Linthwaite

In May 2019 volunteers from Pride in Linthwaite and staff from Kirklees Council were out and about in Linthwaite. We struck up conversations with citizens whilst you were at community groups, meetings or local venues. We also held some drop-in events and offered home visits or the option of taking part online.
