BEAUTY will be the subject of a talk in Rawdon this month.

Wakefield Civic Society chairman Kevin Trickett will give the talk at Rawdon Community Library at 7.30pm on Thursday, September 26. Mr Trickett will examine the idea of beauty in our lives and why it is important. He will focus on making our environment more attractive.

In November 2018, the government announced the setting up the Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission.

Mr Trickett has been asked to join a panel set up by Civic Voice, the national organisation for the civic society movement, to help prepare a response to the commission.The event is being organised by Aireborough Civic Society. Entrance is free for ACS members or £4 for non-members.
