Networking meetings for voluntary and community groups in Keighley and the surrounding area are being revived.

Keighley and Ilkley Voluntary and Community Action (KIVCA) will host quarterly meetings that will be open to all local groups.

KIVCA officer, Julie Lintern, said the Voluntary and Community Sector Forum would allow groups to hear about changes and opportunities.

She added: “It is a troubling time in the district, with Bradford Council forced to make very difficult decisions regarding its budget.

“Our aim is to look at how the sector can possibly plug any gaps that may appear locally, and how that could possibly be resourced.

“We hope that by informing and involving all groups, we can ask the questions and possibly find some solutions.”

Anybody interested in attending a meeting should e-mail or call 01535 665258.
