Ward Forums are for anyone living or working in Calderdale, to get involved in what happens in their local area and discuss what is important to you. By working together we can talk about local issues and plan for the future. The meetings are a great place to meet your local councillors, Calderdale Council staff, police and other services we work with. The evenings start with refreshments and a chance to network and chat informally.
