There is a box in the Post Office in Gilstead.  If Bingley Post Office is nearer to you, it may be worth trying there.

If anyone wants a free three seater bed-settee, or knows someone who might, let me know. It's an old M&S one which I put a new cover on. Probably needs another new cover (not sure this one is fire-proof) but the settee is comfy and it's a ... [ more ]

It is sad that this even has to be discussed tbh. I remember a few years ago Philip Davies MP saying that people who commit crime "forfeit their human rights". Human rights are, by definition, the most basic rights as a human being. You do not get ... [ more ]

Dina, to answer your original question, the Yorkshire Evening Post and Radio Aire covered it though as you say, not tv, disappointingly. Even those who don't agree with the march can acknowledge that such enormous crowds are unusual in Shipley and ... [ more ]

I understood that Saltaire Yarns had closed some time ago. I hope I'm wrong. Kay Krafts in Bingley is also worth a try.

I agree for one who has always been a responsible owner it  not only a menace unhygienic but a total disregard and respect for others including children  take some responsibility for goodness sake.
