Lamplighter Duties

The following is an extract from the Bradley Parish Council minutes, early 20th century:

“ Lamplighter Duties:
All lamps to be lighted every night.
No moon period allowed.
Lamps to be lighted weekdays and Sundays from dusk to 10pm.
Saturdays until 11pm.
Lamps to be cleaned once a month.
New mantles can be had from the Clerk. “

The lamps were supplied with gas from Kildwick.

North Yorkshire Police Property Fund

North Yorkshire Police is calling on local community and voluntary groups to apply for funding for initiatives which benefit the region and its residents, particularly those which could have a positive impact on reducing crime and disorder.

Monies from the North Yorkshire Police Property Fund are generated from the auction of property which has either been seized or confiscated as part of criminal investigations and which, despite its best efforts, the Force has been unable to return to its rightful owners.

Previous successful project applications include conservation experiences for young people, the provision of multi-cultural pre-school learning resources and riding experiences for the disabled.
