Volunteers needed to secure future of residents’ group

If nobody comes forward, Lowton East Neighbourhood Development Forum will have to disband at the end of March.

by Editor Lowton and Golborne News

The future of a community group which has campaigned on many local issues over the years is looking uncertain following the death of its respected Chairman.

Ed Thwaite sadly passed away last year, and since then, Lowton East Neighbourhood Development Forum (known as LENDF) had not been active or held any public meetings.

They finally got together on Monday (17 January) to discuss the current organisational structure of the group, and how to take it forward.

There are currently a number of vacant positions on the group, which must be filled if it is to continue. These are:

  • Chair
  • Vice Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

If they are unable to fill these roles, the group will have to dissolve on 31 March 2022 and, in accordance with the LENDF Constitution, any monies held in the bank account will be distributed to other community groups in the Lowton East ward.

What does LENDF do?

LENDF is a non-political and friendly community group for residents (and businesses) of the Lowton East electoral ward. The groups’ ethos is that by coming together and discussing local issues we can improve our area.

Issues typically discussed at their meetings include local housing issues, traffic congestion and police issues.

Could you get involved with LENDF and help make a positive impact on our community?

The group are now appealing for individuals who may be interested in any of the vacant positions to email lendf99@gmail.com for details of what the roles will entail.
