AFTER ALMOST a decade helping villagers, the Delph Community Association is still fighting the corner of all Delphers – and wants your ideas on how to improve the area.
Established nine years ago, the group has a long list of achievements and projects to shout about to make sure people know they exist and what they do.
The DCA manages Delph’s Library, which is staffed by volunteers working with assistants from Oldham Libraries, and organises a volunteer litter-picking rota as well as keeping the Chapel Gardens in good order.
The team decorated the village centre for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and every Whit Friday afternoon organises sports on the school playing field.
But perhaps its most important role is lobbying the authorities with the help of local councillors to address concerns including planning issues, public footpaths, and upkeep of the village’s appearance.
They are currently pressing for improvements to the ever-present problem of traffic management at Delph Bridge, and discussing proposals for a Conservation Area sign in the village centre.
Join the Delph Community Association to share your ideas and get something done about them. Their next meeting is on Tuesday, July 30 at 7.45pm in the Bar Lounge of Delph Theatre.
