Join us for a Summer of Fun with Friendlees
TSL Kirklees, in partnership with Happy U, has launched a new pilot project, with seed funding from Kirklees Council. The idea behind Friendlees is that any of us, whatever age, due to circumstances beyond our control and life changes such as a bereavement, divorce or moving house, can find ourselves lonely or isolated and in need of some new friends to socialise with.
Friendlees host and co-ordinator, Kelly Williams says:
We all know what it feels like to want to go to that new show, film or gig, but not have anyone to go with. Friendlees will help you make connections and find shared interest without it being scary. We want everyone to feel welcome, relaxed and pleased that they came along – and you never know, you might find a few new friends along the way.
The project is being launched with a series of 6 free events and activities all over Kirklees, including walks, trips, music, dancing, and sing-along cinema. In addition, people can join the Friendlees group on Facebook, and host a coffee catch-up or pub meet-up in their local area and invite other members to join them, or they can suggest events that they’d like to go to and see if other members would like to go along.
The Summer of Fun events, run between June and September, starting with a 5.5 mile Castle Hill walk on 23rd June, with coffee stop at the top whilst admiring the view, and optional pint at The Golden Cock in Farnley Tyas.
Find out more on the Facebook group or Friendlees website.

TSL Kirklees Members’ Meeting: Focus on Children and Families
Thursday 13th June
2pm to 4pm
(Please aim to arrive for 1.45pm so that we can start promptly at 2pm as Mel Meggs has limited time available due to an Ofsted Inspection.)
This is a great opportunity for any local third sector organisations who work with children and families to meet and hear from Mel Meggs, the new Director of Children’s Services for Kirklees Council. We want to make sure that she’s aware of the range of vital and innovative work our members do in this field and so we’ll be presenting short case studies from some of our members. And as ever, there’ll be chance to network over tea and cake, make connections and build relationships, and find out who’s doing what in Kirklees.
In addition Groundwork will be telling us how groups in Kirklees can apply for grants of up to £20k for innovative projects around encouraging people into work, training & education (similar to our own Community Learning Works project).
Meetings are free and open for members of TSL Kirklees, or for non-members who would like to visit before joining. Membership starts from £12 per year. Find out more.
