Local newsagents to retire

A message from Harish and Jo at Krishan’s Newsagents:

As many of you know, after almost 30 years, this will be our last week working at Krishan’s Newsagents. To all of the wonderful people whom we have had the opportunity to serve over the years – thank you.

The times shared, friendships forged and the moments which we have enjoyed have been an extraordinary part  of our lives. It’s now time for us to begin a new chapter.

Thank you for all your support and well wishes. Your custom over the years has meant a great deal to us, and hope you continue to support the new owners as well as all the local shops. We hope we can keep in touch in the future.

Harish and Jo.

Ed: It is sad to see them both go but we wish  Harish and Jo all the best  in their well earned retirement. Over the last thirty years they have generously supported the local community in so many ways – donations for raffles, advertising village events, selling YT calendars being just a few. They will be greatly missed.

Fly tipping on Laneside

Now you see it …….
Now you don’t!
A huge thank you  to Casey’s and volunteers from Yetton Together for removing the unsightly and illegal fly tipping at the old entrance to the brickworks [landfill site] on Laneside.
Increasingly fly tipping is becoming a problem around Kirkheaton. Please report any tippers or their rubbish to the council.

Tour de Kirkheaton pictures wanted!

Have you any pictures of last Sunday’s zip around the edges of Kirkheaton by the Tour de Yorkshire peloton? If so we’d love to put them up on the website to share with others.
Just send to

Awaiting the peloton – Excitement rises at the foot of the Cote de Kirkheaton!
