Rastrick library update
As most of the Community already know, the Friends of Rastrick library were chosen by the Community as the most worthy cause of receiving the £65,000 funding from Voice your Choice in 2017 for their project “Access for All”. It was believed that the alterations needed would not exceed this amount but an estimate from Calderdale was well in excess of £100,000. An amended plan has since been drawn up and the work should now be able to be undertaken for under £80,000.
It is now agreed also that Calderdale will find the difference in funding so that work can go ahead as soon as the necessary planning and similar consents are obtained, quite possibly later this year.
