Road closure

Due to a burst water main earlier today (Tuesday 16 May) Moor Lane is closed just up from West Winds. The diversion is signposted via Derry Hill.

Potentially, the road could be closed for 2 days during the repair work.

 

 Help to save Kirklands for village use!!!

By April of next year Bradford Council intends to transfer to the community the Kirklands Community Centre, its associated buildings and land. Our failure to pick up this opportunity will almost certainly mean its closure.

This much used centre is a vital beating heart of our village life and with effort it could probably provide a cheaper and better service if its stewardship was free of Council bureaucracy and enjoyed the breath of local enterprise and the ability to raise funds through grants and gifts not available to the Council. If the village is to retain its ambience and environment in the coming years Menston must seize this opportunity.

On behalf of the Menston Parish Council Peter Finlay, Quentin Mackenzie and Dale Smith are inviting volunteers to join a working party to draw up proposals for a wider consultation.

Please read the full details below and offer any help that you can.
