Following the Government Guidelines :
Play equipment in parks and other venues must close as they involve prolonged close social contact, which increases the chances of infection spreading.
The Parish Council will leave Glusburn Park open for now for walking and exercise but ask that as the above guideline DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PLAY EQUIPMENT OR THE GYM EQUIPMENT

I have just spoken to a very helpful member of staff at the garage. They said that they think the problem was restricted to the HGV pump on Friday. As far as they know, to date only 3 wagons were affected. If you are concerned then give them a call and they are happy to advise.

One somewhere along Binns Lane, Glusburn would be good.
As Sarah said, one at the end of Binns Lane, or the end of Ryecroft Road would be great. Also one at the junction of Wheatlands Lane/ Park Road/ Baxter Wood. There are suitable sign posts and lamp posts all around there, and a lot of fouling going on on all 3 of those streets.
been like it for months if there ansher the phone

TWO Aire Valley nursing homes are throwing their doors open for Christmas and inviting older people, who will be spending the big day alone, to enjoy a free festive lunch as well as a fantastic day of celebrations.
Currergate Nursing Home in Steeton, and Beanlands Nursing Home in Cross Hills, will both be serving a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings from 12noon on Christmas Day. The homes are owned and operated by Saltaire-based Czajka Care Group, and anyone wanting to book a place should call the company’s office on 01274 599564.
Konrad Czajka, managing director at Czajka Care Group, said: “Christmas is always a special time across all our homes, with lots of events and parties taking place. However, we know this time of year can also be a struggle for those people who live alone, have recently lost a partner, or whose families live a long way away and can’t be with them.
“Being alone at Christmas time is particularly tough, so we wanted to invite any older people in the local area to come and spend Christmas with us as part of our community, as it’s always a superb day. We made a similar pledge last year which was well received, and we really hope that we can make a difference to people who feel lonely and isolated this Christmas.
“Anyone wanting to book a place should contact us now. They will enjoy a fantastic lunch, great company, music, Christmas games - and there might even be a visit from Santa!” ... See MoreSee Less

Following the post below:
Just a warning, the level crossing at Crosshills near the Co-op petrol station has a large pot hole, It has popped my tyre and at least two others today. The police have been informed and they are passing the details on to the appropriate department. I was traveling from Steeton towards Skipton. Please be careful.
The Parish Council contacted Network Rail instantly - reply below: ... See MoreSee Less
The work was completed as planned and boxes repainted. Hopefully it will last. If there are problems the parish council will raise these with the appropriate agency.
Yes, damaged my alloy on Monday pm. Nearly spoilt the day as I was going in to Skipton for a special lunch and ended up with a deflating tyre, with a 3 year old in the car. I’ve requested a claim form from Network Rail, not sure yet how much the alloy will cost me let alone the tyre.
North Yorkshire Highways Agency don’t say that. I spoke to them yesterday and they didn’t know when it was going to be repaired. Maybe it’s a different department.
And there’s another one at the other side just the same size too
