REMEMBERING JO COX 

Five years ago, Jo Cox was murdered in her constituency of Batley & Spen.

Five years ago two children lost their mum and a husband lost his partner. A constituency lost a crusading MP.

Today we remember her legacy, her passion, and her compassion.

We can honour her by working for a fairer, more hopeful world.

Gone but not forgotten. 

RIP Jo Cox

Eyewitnesses described an 'horrendous loud bang' as a vehicle crashed into street furniture and car on Walkley Lane, junction with Moor View in Heckmondwike.

Emergency services raced to the scene closing the road in both directions.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that a number of males made off from the scene, leaving one man from the same car to be rescued.

โญ  Celebrating Dewsbury Series:

Today we look at a local lass who became a formidable political force who smashed a glass ceiling!

BETTY BOOTHROYD

The first woman Speaker in Britains House of Commons, Betty Boothroyd (born 1929), a Labour Party member, was the first Speaker in the 20th century chosen from an opposition party.

We fought big time fascists when I was knee high to a grasshopper up in Yorkshire, when I grew up I fought fascists in the West Midlands in the form of the National Front.

Batley Variety Club later became The Frontier before finally closing down in 2016 (currently a gym).

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น PORTUGAL NO LONGER GREEN

Portugal has been removed from the UK governmentโ€™s โ€œgreen listโ€ of destinations from which people can return to England without having to quarantine, and no extra countries have been added, it is understood.

This is a real blow to tourism and tourists.

We hope that we can get back to normality as soon as possible!

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง In the meantime, make the most of the great opportunities to rediscover our green and pleasant lands here in the UK!

There is so much to see and experience.

๐Ÿ“š   REMEMBERING WH SMITH, THE MAN

WH Smith is a British institution.

We were sad to note of its closure in Dewsbury.

But today we celebrate another WH Smith.

WH Smith was Dewsburyโ€™s first borough librarian in 1889.
Books were his life and, within a few years of being the townโ€™s librarian, the library was turning over three quarters of a million books a year.

He loved the Brontes even more than we do and collected their works.

A true local hero!
