The Mirfield Community Centre is run and managed on a day to day basis by the Mirfield Community Centre Committee, a group of local volunteers who have worked tirelessly to maintain and develop the centre since the mid 1990s. Our philosophy is ‘run by the people, for the people of Mirfield’.
The building itself was formerly owned by Kirklees, but the asset was successfully transferred in 2018 to the Mirfield Community Trust (Charity number: 1159158).
Ways to get involved:
- We have regular working parties to maintain and develop the Centre.
- Local businesses may be willing to offer practical help and sponsorship.
- Consider offering your services to the Management Committee or becoming a Trustee. Meetings are held monthly.
