Foxhill Primary School, Queensbury – Needs You

Our local children have taken a keen interest in music, however finance is a problem for the provision of instruments, uniform and a whole host of other items. Can anyone think of ways to raise funds for the school? Would you be prepared to spend time organising it? Or perhaps make a donation, as they say in God’s own county, “Pennies make Pounds”. So any amount would be most welcome.

I remember well the performance of the drummers at Victoria Hall and was astounded by their skills and smiling faces as they played. They clearly enjoyed every minute of it.

Below are email messages received by me regarding the band, latest first.

They are in line for a large grant from the ward budget supported my myself and my ward colleagues.

Michael, that is what I like to hear, money being spent in Queensbury for a change.

Hi Michael,
If the ward budget bid is unsuccessful, Lynda and I  don’t expect it to be, we will donate the £1000 required for the members uniforms.
Kind regards Paul and Lynda (Cromie).

Good Afternoon Mr Walls,

I wondered if you would consider supporting Foxhill Primary School’s ‘Up & Coming’ Brass Band  with a donation from the Queensbury Ward Budget.

I subsidise  tuition for all children and pay in total for a weekly band session from the school budget   As school funds are tight, this leaves very little for providing for the Brass Bands needs.

We currently have 25 keen members in our band, some of them as young as 6 years old.  We are just beginning to give a few public performances.  These children are the future of ‘Brass’.  Black Dyke, we are not! However they are proud of their achievements and in the years to come, with the right opportunities  and support could ensure the success of Brass in Queensbury.

We would like to raise around £1000 to buy a uniform for our band (ie  jackets) and it is proving very difficult!   The children are going to do some bag packing at Tescos in November but we are still going to be way off our target.

Thank you for considering our application.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Sally Hey

NEXT ROUND OF COMMUNITY FUNDING LAUNCHED IN BRADFORD

THE next round of grants to support grassroots organisations across Bradford and Calderdale launches on 1 October 2014.

Leo Group Ltd, a green energy and recycling specialist based in Halifax, is inviting applications from voluntary organisations and good causes working with children and young people to share in thousands of pounds of grants.

From Wednesday 1 October until the deadline of Friday 27 February 2015, the company is seeking submissions from across the community for its next round of grants. The Community Fund is particularly keen to hear from good causes involved in sporting activities, educational projects, cultural and environmental initiatives, as well as schemes that aim to banish isolation.

Leo Group employs over 420 people across 10 sites in the UK, including Omega Proteins in Denholme, Bradford.

Since the initiative was launched in 2011, Leo Group’s Community Fund has awarded much-needed project funding to 15 local organisations. Successful bids for up to £2,500 cash include those from Home-Start Calderdale and Chellow Heights Special School in Bradford.

Leo Group PR and Communications Manager, Melanie Rosser, said: “As a major employer in the area, we are committed to supporting the local community. Our Community Fund gives us a platform to provide local good causes with the funding they need.”

“We received three times as many applicants in 2014 compared to the previous round of grants. The response shows there is no shortage of excellent work being carried out by charities and grassroots organisations across the area and there is high demand for financial support.”

Melanie can be contacted via e-mail at melanie.rosser@leogroupltd.co.uk for an application form and guidelines for making a submission.

The Community Fund forms a key strand of the company’s wider programme of charitable donations, which in the last two years has handed out a record amount of money to good causes in every corner of the community – some £250,000.

Dear Andrew et al,

I have had a request from a resident who lives opposite the proposed development for a freedom of information request re the land know as Asa Briggs playing fields Clayton Heights.

The resident is concerned that as far as she knew the land was a gift from Asa Briggs to the residents of Clayton Heights.

Can this be verified please?

Kind regards Paul
