Liverpool to expand Jewish activities

Liverpool has appointed an activities co-ordinator to maintain development in the wake of the closure of the Harold House community centre.

Adam Cailler, who was assistant centre manager, is taking on the role as the result of a joint initiative by Merseyside Jewish Representative Council, UJIA and the King David Foundation.

The plan is for Mr Cailler to expand the communal programme in preparation for the opening of a centre on the new King David schools campus currently under construction.

"It's going to be a challenge to see how the community adapts without Harold House," he said. "I will be working with all age groups over the next few weeks to find out what everyone wants with regard to events."

Rep council president Gordon Globe hoped "this initiative will be the first of many that will shape the way communal affairs are dealt with over the coming years. It demonstrates how the community can evolve in a positive manner to the challenges ahead."
