  • About The Tech

The Tech is a charitable Community Benefit Society and its constitution states that it shall have the purpose of ensuring the preservation of The Holmfirth Technical Institute (Est. 1894) to further, in today’s context, its original founders’ ideals of providing education for children and adults and supporting the prosperity of the area.

Specifically, the Society shall seek to:

  • benefit the residents of the Holme Valley and the neighbourhood, without distinction of age, sex, sexual orientation, race or of political, religious or other opinions by advancing education and providing facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation and leisure time occupation with the objective of improving the conditions of life for the residents.
  • advance the education of the public in the subjects of, in particular but not exclusively, music and art.
  • relieve hardship or unemployment of those in financial and economic need, in particular, but not exclusively, by the provision access to facilities and workspace and other assistance to enable such persons to become self-supporting.
The activities that take place in The Tech will be driven by the community and their needs.  The Tech management will aim to facilitate those activities that can reasonably be accommodated, build on the activities already in place and meet the objects of the charity as stated above.


Plans for the building

We have been using the building for community and enterprise since June 2018 and have learnt alot about how it works. We are also learning alot about local people's interests and demands.  This has helped us think about how the space will work best - now and in the longer term so we can meet our financial objectives.

These are very simple - run the business so it is viable and financially secure.  Any profit will be reinvested in the building to ensure that it remains fit for purpose.  The overarching principles for refurbishing the building will be to keep its historic characteristics intact whenever possible and flexibility.

Refurbishment on essential tasks will start as soon as the ownership of the building is finalised and then will be dependent on the availability of funds.  

More detail will be available once the refurbishment in underway.
