WATER MAIN LEAKAGE – Sandygate Road & Manchester Road Junction

Around the 16th January 2019, the Crosspool Forum reported the water main leakage at the junction of Sandygate Road and Manchester Road to Yorkshire Water.Water leak.jpg

Yorkshire Water confirmed that the leak had been registered and booked for repair by Morrisons,

The repair will be complex since it will involve 4-way traffic-lights and a possible road-diversion.

Complexity is increased by the fact that Council permission will have to be given for this, and it is still forthcoming.

Even before this, they will need to get the co-operation of British Gas.

Therefore, so far a date has not been fixed.  When it is, Morrisons (Yorkshire Water) will try to do the job ‘out of hours’ – i.e. overnight, finished by 06.00 hrs.

Awaiting a date as to when Morrisons will be starting the repair work

Crosspool Forum Christmas Tree Shredding and Recycling

We love recycling real Christmas trees because it encourages you, for a small donation, to recycle your old tree for cattle bedding and in so doing prevent it from ending up in a landfill.

Our thanks to the many who brought their tree down last Sunday for recycling by our local tree specialist Andrew Clayton, and to the volunteers who made this year’s fundraising event such a success.

We’d particularly like to give a big thank you to” Direct Travel”, for allowing the space in front of their premises to be invaded with over two hundred Christmas trees.

Our appreciation to the many local businesses for their continued support displaying Christmas trees and to the team of volunteers who helped put them up and take them down year on year.

 It all adds up to a very successful event for both the community and the environment.

2019 The Year to Improve Your Health through Exercise

To improve your health through exercise the Crosspool Forum organise weekly hour long physical activity sessions for adults of all ages

Have you never tried Easy Exercise or Tai Chi but would like to give either of them a go?

This being the beginning of a New Year is the perfect opportunity to give them a try in a friendly and relaxed environment.

Chair Based Easy Exercises are aimed at people who wish to either maintain or increase their Independence, with exercises to strengthen muscles and bones. Stronger muscles help to improve circulation balance and walking, making every day activities such as washing, dressing, shopping or doing house work easier and less of a strain.


Tai Chi is a slow physical exercise ideal for improving relaxation, balance and overall health. These sessions are great for beginners and can really help you improve your strength and balance. You don’t need any specific clothing; just wear something you’re comfortable in and non-marking footwear.

No need to book; simply come along to the Scout Hall, on Benty Lane, Crosspool

Easy Exercise Class, Tuesday mornings 10:45 -11:45

Tai Chi Class, Wednesday mornings 10:45 -11:45
