THE date has been set for one of Gildersome’s most popular events.

The third Gildersome Scarecrow Festival is to be held in the village on Sunday, June 12.

Each year dozens of scarecrows are put up around the village, attracting thousands of visitors from far and wide who come to join the fun.

From comic book heroes to public figures and pop legends, inspiration for the scarecrows can come from anywhere.

But the organisers do need to know who is taking part so that a route can be planned and mapped out.

Anyone wanting to include their scarecrow in this year’s festival should ring Kathy Cook on 0113 2530667 or Pat May on 0113 2537019.

RESIDENTS in a Tingley cul-de-sac are looking forward to holding a royal wedding street party on April 29.

Susan Ralph who lives on Upper Green Way said around 100 neighbours have already said they will be attending the party.

There will be bunting and decorations, food, quizzes, a karaoke and a bouncy castle and face painting for the children.

She said it was a good excuse for neighbours to get to know each other and they wanted to mark the happy occasion and give the children some happy memories.

COTTINGLEY folk are invited to join in the celebration of the royal wedding.

On Friday, April 29 the Church in Cottingley will be hosting a family day for everyone to enjoy.

Everyone is welcome along once they have watched the couple’s big day for fun and refreshments.
