Cake and a Chinwag at Athersley Gala!

Setting out our stall at Athersley Gala, we talked to lots of lovely locals about our upcoming occupation of the area.

Over cake and a chinwag we introduced the UPLIFT project and sought to gather the views of what local residents would like to see in the area and engage with during our takeover and beyond.

Here's a few snapshots from our delightful day out!

We're Coming to Athersley!

Following our takeover of Goldthorpe earlier this year, we're out and about in Athersley in preparation for our next UPLIFT Occupation!

This Autumn/Winter sees us hitting Athersley for a week of UPLIFTING events culminating in our big event on 4th October 2014: Save the date!

Catch us in the area in the run up to our takeover as we look to meet members of the community and local groups and organisations. We'll be at Laithes Lane Gala this week so look out for Hayley and Gemma who are armed with cakes, ready to have a natter!

If you want to help others feel good and have fun, get in touch!
We are looking for people with energy, ideas and good ol’ community spirit to tell us what people in the area want and help us make things happen!
