Cullingworth nestles in Yorkshire's wonderful South Pennines and I have the pleasure and delight to be the village's Conservative Councillor. But these are my views - on politics, food, beer and the stupidity of those who want to tell me what to think or do. And a little on mushrooms.

When the five West Yorkshire Councils sold Leeds Bradford Airport a few years ago some of the money was made available at word level for special projects. In Cottingley we got some fairies - what else!
And the fairies - or rather the artistic remembrance of what put Cottingley on the map - get an ace setting looking towards the Cornerstone Centre (which replaced and now incorporates St Michael & All Angels Church) across the newly planted Oval and the upgraded Parade.
Makes it all worthwhile really....
But it's not down to me but down to the local church, to Cottingley Community Association - to ten years of plodding away at improvements with no cash, no special support, no regeneration 'funny money'. And it's really great to see it nearly complete!
