My sister Pauline and myself both members of Queensbury Performing Arts, QCHAP also Queensbury Singers are hosting a 1940s day on Saturday 27th September 2014. Venues for some events are Queensbury Conservative Club and George III pub, we would welcome any offers of help to put on this special 1940s day in our community.

The plan is to have a 1940s family fun day starting soon after lunch at the George III, there will be music and singing also children’s games on the village green, followed by a tea party in the Con Club.

In the evening there will be a 1940s style dance and entertainment in the Con Club.

If anyone would like to sing a solo or duet 1940s style, play an instrument or read some poetry they are welcome do so.

Brighouse Festival 15th to 20th September 2014

On Saturday 30th August 2014, I visited the Brighouse Canal and Music Festival. What a brilliant event. It followed on from another very successful Brighouse event, the 1940′s weekend. All are well worth a visit. Have a look at the links below.

Queensbury is developing our community spirit by staging similar events, why not help to make these successful or turn up and enjoy the days entertainment.









Swimming Pool, Queensbury – Submitted by Cllr Paul Cromie

Dear Andrew et al,

I have had a request from a resident who lives opposite the proposed development for a freedom of information request re the land know as Asa Briggs playing fields Clayton Heights.

The resident is concerned that as far as she knew the land was a gift from Asa Briggs to the residents of Clayton Heights.

Can this be verified please?

Kind regards Paul

Brighouse Road, Queensbury – Submitted by Cllr Paul Cromie

Brighouse Road, Queensbury

Brighouse Road

As part of the new development at the Black Dyke Mills site Bradford Council has received some funding to implement no waiting at any time restrictions at the new junction and permit parking on Brighouse Road. The permit parking will be for houses 2 to 16 on Brighouse Road and all details can be seen on attached plan R/PTH/TH/102611/CO-1A.

Traffic signals will be introduced at the junction of the new development, Brighouse Road and Tesco’s entrance. As part of the agreement the developer is to improve visibility to the queuing traffic signals by formalising the on street parking with a permit parking bay.

I have consulted with the residents at 2 to 16 Brighouse Road regarding whether permit parking is needed or wanted. I have received 3 responses for the permit parking to be introduced out of the 8 houses.

Please could I have feedback on whether a residents permit parking bay is needed and if there are any current issues at this location.

If the permit parking scheme does not go ahead we will introduce a parking bay, which do not require permits, as a second option to help the visibility for the new junction. I am on leave now until 8th September 2014 and will look back into this matter on my return.

Yours Sincerely,

Sukhpal Shergill
