Look at all the groups active in Meltham in the Examiner Wish 2013

Deacon Close Tenants and Residents Association
Our group was established in 2011. We look after a small estate of mainly elderly and disabled residents. We successfully campaigned to re-open and refurbish the local community centre. We work to maintain and improve our local living experience, strive to include everyone and open the community centre activities to the wider community.
