As well as dealing with environmental and housing issues, they also want to promote healthier lifestyles.

Members are keen to speak with the community groups working in the area as well as local residents. 

There will be a residents' meeting held on Wednesday, May 14, from 6pm to 7.30pm at Leadgate Cricket Club in Garden Place for all local people interested in getting involved in the project.
