What have we been up to?

Welcome to our new and improved Calderdale LMC website!

We would like to request your feedback regarding the new site as well as suggestions as to how we could improve and develop it further. Please feel free to pass your comments to one of the LMC members. Alternatively, you can use the contact form to let us know what you think.
