Lye & Wollescote Chapels, Cemetery Road, Lye.
As many of you may be aware, Lye & Wollescote Chapels was the first building in Dudley borough to undergo the Asset Transfer journey. Since then there have been others and I am happy to report, more on the way and as and when they do happen, we will keep you posted.
On Monday afternoon I had the lovely honour of celebrating International Women’s Day with Diyya, a group in Lye that supports women and their families by bringing them together, building their confidence and encouraging them to take advantage of opportunities to learn new things and develop their skills.
Community Assets are land or buildings predominantly owned by statutory services which are then transferred over and developed under the management of community organisations. Asset based development assists 3rd sector organisations to achieve long-term sustainable social, economic and environmental achievements within their own locations.
