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.

Margaret launches the fairies' village green
Yesterday, my ward colleague, Margaret, Baroness Eaton opened the new village green in Cottingley and the forged art featuring the famous fairies. In the glorious sunshine assembled worthies - Phil Davies the MP, us local councillors, Council staff - plus a good number of local residents saw the fruition of three years effort.
A great event - had a glass of bubbly in the Cornerstone Centre too! Always good to see the efforts of communities succeed - as Margaret said in her little speech, this shows how partnership works.
