Meet the Team

A message from our trustees

We are entering an exciting phase of the development of The Space Field Lane, we have recently finalised the plans and are currently obtaining detailed costings.
In addition to regular planning meetings we are working with the community to engage potential users and groups. We are arranging volunteer visits to the centre so they can determine how to help.

Mags Bryson
Calderdale Council Neighbourhood Co-ordinator.
Mags has been working with the Trustees a local group of people working to get the centre re-opened.


Much loved facility now derelict and unused
Nothing else remotely similar on Field Lane
Hardly any current youth provision
Nowhere for inter-generational connection
Nowhere to re-inforce any sense of place
But there is:
Lots of affection for the area by the residents
A very great readiness to work with whatever is on offer to residents……..
