New Year Activities

Jason walked round the Thornton Lodge area with community outreach worker Osman this week. They saw the new Community Centre as it takes shape, dropped in on local people and saw some of the areas being blighted by vandalism and fly-tipping.

Jason also visited the high tech text messaging services business which is based in Golcar. The company employs 10 people and serves a wide range of local businesses and public services including Colne Valley High School who can inform parents and guardians of school closures at the touch of a button.

He also paid a visit to the UK’s biggest manufacturer of horse boxes. The family run business is based in Meltham but has sites all over the constituency including this one pictured in Slaithwaite. This vibrant company, which employs 130 local people, has seen turnover increase by an incredible 60% in the past year. Visit for more details.

Jason visited Burton Safes in Brockholes. The company supplies a range of security products for the UK and overseas markets. Visit for more details.
