The Howe Bridge Community Group (The Bridgers) was formed in 1998 by a few local residents, Licensee of the Oak Tree Root Public House and our local Councillors, we have a Constitution, Mission Statement, List of Aims & Objectives an Equal Opportunities Policy, Child Protection Policy, Health & Safety Policy Public Liability Insurance and a Membership that is open to everyone within our village boundaries and Constitutional area.
We have a set of rules and a bank account and we produce a monthly newsletter called 'THE BRIDGER'. This is distributed to every household, 1200, in the village of Howe Bridge plus some of the satellite areas, we have monthly meetings and an AGM every year during which we elect officials for the forthcoming year. During the past year we have extended the Bridger boundary to include the area from the Punch Bowl / Wigan Road down to Howe Bridge, also, the lower half of Hamilton Street. You can see copies of 'The Bridger' by clicking on the 'Newsletters' link on the left.
