Jim Finnegan 1951 – 2017

We are sad to report the death of James [Jim] Finnegan after a sudden, short illness. Although he and his wife Lesley have only lived in Kirkheaton for the last five years, they have thrown themselves into village life. Both were founder library volunteers and Jim took on the role of chair of the Friends of Kirkheaton Library group and Lesley became the Chair of the Book group. Jim was a lovely man, generous with his time helping out at the  Community Centre while volunteering at the library. His positive, humorous attitude was very infectious and he will be sorely missed by us all.

One of his wishes even at the end of his life, was to support the village and asked that part of the donations at his funeral should be given to the Community Centre.


£1000 grant towards Community Centre refurbishment.

Recently a cheque for £1,000 was presented by Duncan Hague, the Worshipful Master of The Lodge of Peace at Meltham to Yetton Together to help fund the refurbishment of the kitchen and installation of new toilets at the Community Centre.
The cheque was one  of many distributed to good causes from the West Riding Provincial Grand Masters Fund.

About blooming time!

Now is the time to get out into the lovely countryside around Kirkheaton and enjoy the bluebells which are flowering now. There are numerous walks where you can see them in their natural woodland habitat. Try the suggested walks that were published in the Spring 2017 edition of Yetton News or search ‘bluebell walk’ on our website –

Vandals strike again at Community Centre

Vandals have trashed our daffodils (in full bloom) from our flower containers and thrown them at the building door and window, making a huge mess.  This is criminal damage which has been reported to West Yorkshire police.  If anyone has information that might lead to the identification of the culprits, please contact Bev on 07708 999 728 so any information can be reported under the police crime number.
