The Autumn Gathering and AGM was a great opportunity to look back at a busy year for us at Huddersfield Town of Sanctuary and to look forward to the next year. There have been a number of new organisations joining over the past year so that now we have a total of 81 organisations signed up. The directory of organisations involved was published in January and we are in the process of getting the directory online. Our International Ceilidh in June was, once again, a fantastic celebration of Sanctuary in Huddersfield with wonderful food, music and dancing and a chance for people to meet and chat.

The Autumn Gathering gave us a chance to find out about what some of the groups have been doing to involve people seeking sanctuary in small ways and big ways. It was also an opportunity to talk about what we want to do next and there were lots of great ideas for the future. We look forward to another great year!
