Here’s what was happening in Morley in April.

Morley’s got talent! Ten-year-old singer and dancer Troy Tipple hit the big time when he played the part of Charlie Bucket in Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which hit the stage in London’s West End.

The parents of 15-month-old Drighlington tot Abbie Venner appealed for help in their bid to buy a medical vest that would improve her quality of life. Abbie suffers from cystic fibrosis. As reported this week, little Abbie now has the vest in time for Christmas!

Plans to cut the presence of PCSOs in Morley by 20 per cent were heavily criticised by councillors and residents.
