We’re pleased to announce that we’ve recently launched new features here on the website that provide information about local community groups, services and facilities.

At the home page, you will find a new heading called Local Information, under which the first item is Community Organisations. Here we have started to gather details about local community groups located in Bingley or located just outside and serving the parish. You can browse for organisations under categories such as ‘Arts and Entertainment’, ‘Environment’ and ‘Social Groups and Community Development’ or search for a particular group if you already know its name.

If you’re running a local group and would like to see it included, it’s over to you – you can add your group’s details to the site yourself using the ‘Create a listing’ feature. Use the ‘Nature of Activity’ box to give a brief summary of what your group does and the ‘Additional Details’ box for other information, perhaps a contact name or details of meetings. Don’t forget to include an image, which can be a photograph or logo or anything else you’d like to use to identify your group.

We’ve also introduced a Services and Facilities page where you can browse or search for information about local services such as schools, dentists and meeting venues, including services provided by Bingley Town Council itself.

We hope you’ll find these features useful. If you have any questions, or need help, please contact Laura Jowett, Administrative Officer (admin.officer@bingleytowncouncil.gov.uk / 07703 188660 or Cllr Edwina Simpson (edwina.simpson@bingleytowncouncil.gov.uk / 07932 191558).
