Dave Wilders


Dave is a retired Colliery official. His interests are in the arts and community issues.

From 1990 until 2000 he served and gained much experience as a trustee for a successful innovative arts organisation, the Yorkshire Art Circus based in Castleford. He has self published several books and is a practising artist. He has been, since its conception in 1998 to the present, the chairperson of the Friends Of Castleford Library.

The group fulfilled one of its aims in December 2013 with the opening of a £1.4million new library/museum the Castleford Forum, which Dave has had the pleasure of being on the steering group to deliver it. His community interests have also lead to him being a director of the Castleford Town Centre Partnership since 2002 and a founder member and trustee of the Castleford Heritage Trust since 2000
