High Peak Labour councillors support new community space in Fairfield

Community champion, Lia Roos, has opened the Residents of Fairfield Association’s second unit

On Saturday 25th February, the packed opening ceremony was attended by Fairfield residents, police, firefighters and sponsors. High Peak Labour was out in force. Councillors were there, along with our parliamentary candidate, Jon Pearce and High Peak’s mayor, our own Ollie Cross in full regalia.

The community hub is Rofa’s response to the need for a welcoming space in Fairfield, to help people cope with the rising cost of living and energy prices. It’s close to Rofa’s existing community space and increases the resources available to the people who live there.

Lia worked with Stone Bench Labour councillor, Fiona Sloman to secure an empty shop on Victoria Park Road and make it habitable. Now, it’s a place where local residents, old and young, can meet for a coffee and chat.  

Councillor Sloman also used her councillor initiative funds to support the crafting days, pamper sessions and other projects that will take place there.

But there’s still more to come. With the support of both Fiona and Barms Labour councillor, Rachael Quinn, work is continuing to open a launderette, food cupboard and shop.  

Fiona is passionate about improving things for the residents of her ward. “It is important to me to try to help residents of Fairfield as best I can in these straitened times.”
