Cycle Queensbury at the last meeting they held they asked me if I could organise Station Road to be swept before their event on the 18th.
I contacted Angus Herron who are to sweep it next Friday the 16th am,
I am paying for the sweep myself out of my councillors pay.
The below comments are extracts from emails I have received, permission has been obtained to publish them.
Myself and my partner moved up to Queensbury from Derby and Stoke-on-Trent on to the New Harron Homes development site (Hazel Hurst Quarry).
I’m not normally a political person but from reading the newsletter I was surprised by how much you and your wife are involved in the community which is fantastic and a credit to you both.
Despite the local’s opposing the new development we have settled in well here and would like to get in touch with a local scouting group, could you provide me with a contact please?
Also, as the new development is new, Bradford Council will not provide grit bins. Is this something that can be looked into?
Many Thanks and keep up the great work.
Thank you for you kind words, Lynda and I are dedicated to serving the Queensbury Community.
We are glad you like living in Queensbury it is a nice place to live, I’m bound to say that as I was born here 61 years ago but seriously it is a fantastic place to live.
I have copied contacts for the Scout leaders in for you, Roger Hyde and Nick Tindal also leader of the scout band Oliver Richardson.
Kind regards Paul
You may be aware that the Tour de France is in our part of the world on Sunday 6 July 2014. It is passing through Haworth and Oxenhope, with timings shown below:
|Kilometres||Schedules (Local time)|
|from the finish||from the start||41 km/h||39 km/h||37 km/h|
I am proposing a walk from the Ogden area, to Oxenhope, possibly Penistone Hill Country Park to watch the cyclists climb the hill from Lower Laithe Reservoir near Stanbury. It will take just over 2 hours to walk there so a 9.30 am set off from Queensbury will be appropriate, this will give time to find a suitable watching position and have a picnic lunch before the cyclists pass.
The walk will be about 10.5 miles and involve 500 metres of climb.
Let me know if you are interested and I will do some more planning if enough are interested. I will need to know the road closures for the area, I may then be able to shorten the walk.
