A new mobile Community Hub and Library service will be making fortnightly visits to Cottingley and is ready to help residents with their housing, council tax and benefits and provide employment support as well as offering library and internet services and much more.
The new mobile service aims to bring council services closer to the communities they serve – making them more accessible to local people.
The mobile Community Hub and Library service is next visiting Cottingley on Wednesday 21 June and will be located opposite Cottingley Towers, next to the shops, from 10am to midday. They will be back at the same time, every other Wednesday, to help residents with a range of enquiries.
Councillor Gohar Almass, (Labour, Beeston & Holbeck) said:
“My ward colleagues, Councillor Scopes, Councillor Maloney and I are delighted that this new way to get help and advice with Leeds City Council and Leeds Library services is being offered in Cottingley.
“This is an extension of the service after regular weekly sessions have proven successful in Holbeck.
“I’d encourage anyone who wants to use the library or needs help with their housing, benefits, or finding work, to come along to use the service. I hope residents find it useful.”
The mobile Community Hub and Library service visits Holbeck, outside St Matthew’s Community Centre every Tuesday 10am-3:30pm and every Thursday 9;30am-3:30pm.
