Hallam Community & Youth Association

HCYA is a registered charity founded in 1964 to preserve space for recreation and to provide cultural and social activities for the residents of Fulwood and Lodge Moor. Annual membership entitles you to take part in any of the activities in our purpose built community hall and at offsite venues. If you want to join HCYA visit our membership page.


We are looking for new volunteers to join the committee to keep the hall running.

There are 2 vacancies coming available, details of the roles are below. If you are interested in volunteering but not for these roles please do still get in contact as we are always happy for people to volunteer.

Honorary Secretary - responsible for organising the meetings of Council, the Executive and the Annual General Meeting and any special meetings as necessary. In consultation with the Chairman and minutes secretary the Secretary issues the agendas, records and drafts the minutes of those meetings. The minutes are then agreed with the Chair prior to circulation and distribution.

Hall Bookings & Events - responsible for enquiries (through email, web and telephone) regarding the Hall rental and effectively manages the hall bookings diary by agreeing hire dates and making sure all paperwork is signed and payments are made.

News from HCYA

Heights Notice - A Safe Return

To provide clarification and reassurance to those concerned, please find outlined below the reasons we are able to return.

Throughout the week, we provide wraparound childcare for infant and junior pupils, who have working parents or parents in need of respite. This is permitted under point 87 of the Government's COVID-19 RESPONSE − SPRING 2021 document and under Out-Of-Schools Settings (OOSS) guidance .

We also provide education and training in examined qualifications. We have received communication from our exam board, the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) that the teaching of Grade level pupils is permitted indoors from 8th March as part of the effort to obtain a regulated, Ofqual accredited qualification, approved under the latest OOSS guidance (updated 11.03.21).

The Heights has been in touch with the City Council who have confirmed that this level of teaching is permitted!

Online teaching is still in use for genres/pupils that do not meet the criteria outlined above.

We are reading government guidance carefully and taking advice from industry specialists and a specialist in infectious diseases. Our priority is, and will always be, the wellbeing of our pupils.

New Volunteers

Following an appeal in last year's Citizen, we are pleased to be able to say that we have a number of new and younger people helping to run HCYA. Thank you to Helen, Sophie, Tracy and Nicola for volunteering and taking over important roles within our organisation.

And don't think that lets the rest of you off the hook! We still need new people, HCYA members or not, willing to help out at the monthly meetings (1st Thursday in the month at 8:00pm to 9:30pm) and organising next years summer fete. We also need one or two people to help our Hall Manager look after Hallam itself. If you are interested, please call me.
