NHP Annual General Meeting – 20 Jan 2021

Posted on Updated on

We’re working towards our vision of a better future for all generations.

Find out more at our Annual General Meeting on North Halifax Partnership AGM; 6pm on Wednesday 20 January 2021

If you’d like to join us to look back over the year 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020, and to share our plans for the future, please contact Kim.Connell@nhpltd.org.uk , who will send you an invitation to our first virtual AGM .

In the meantime, click here for some pictures and numbers from our world before the pandemic.

No matter how awful 2020 has been (and at times it really has) its certainly been a fantastic year for community involvement and volunteering. Across Calderdale more people than ever have been looking out for their neighbours, helping out the vulnerable and finding new ways to reach out and support strangers in their communities.

Our NHP annual awards celebrations were sadly not able to go ahead this year due to the COVID19 situation but our NHP Community Thank You has seen around 80 people sending personal messages of gratitude to one another via our Friday Flyers and community blogs.

Not an NHP member? Our most important members are the residents of North Halifax and YOU can join them! Click here to join.
