Bradley Show to go ahead


Bradley Show will go ahead on Sunday 11th September. However, to mark the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth there will be an announcement at 12 noon, followed by 2 minutes silence and the National Anthem. There will be a Book of Condolence in a gazebo at the Show for anyone who would like to leave a message. On Monday the Book will be available to view and sign in the Village Hall Committee room until after the day of the funeral. It was felt that this was the best way for the Community to come together to remember and what the Queen would have wanted…business as usual.

Books of Condolence have also been opened at Skipton Town Hall and at the Council offices in Belle Vue Square, Skipton. An online book of condolence is available via Buckingham Palacebs website atB

July 2022 Update

July 2022 The Neighbourhood Plan is almost complete. We have now received the updated SEA and HRA reports from Craven District Council. All the documents go to the statutory bodies i.e., Historic England, Environment Agency and English Heritage for comment. Following receipt of comments the Plan will be formally submitted for examination by an independent examiner. A referendum will be organised by Craven District Council for residents to approve the Plan. Once approved it will be adopted.

Update on Canal works

The Canal & River Trust are going to try a temporary fix to let the canal reopen in the next two weeks.  Webll do this by clearing the bed of the canal and placing supports over the top of the culvert to reduce the weight on them and prevent it collapsing further, and then relining over the top to prevent leakage through from the canal into the culvert.  It is hoped this work will be done by 9th July. 

“The design work on the permanent fix can then continue until approximately September, then we can plan the works in canal closure window this winter if all goes well with the temporary fix.”

The tow path will be closed while the temporary fix is carried out and then again in the winter for several months while the permanant repair is done.
