New start for local forum

Have your say

HILLSBOROUGH Forum has moved offices into a brand new shop on Proctor Place, off Middlewood Road.

The organisation, which encourages economic regeneration and campaigns to promote independent traders, is opening its new premises with a ceremony today, attended by David Blunkett MP.

Forum Project Officer Wendy Wells MBE said: “Our new shop front means members of the public can visit to learn more about us and find out how they might get involved in making Hillsborough an even better place to live and work.

“Our new site was a family-run flower shop for 60 years before finally closing last summer, so it’s great that entering Yorkshire in Bloom competitions and brightening the area up with other environmental improvements is part of what we do.”
