   Ee bah gum! Yorkshire Day 2017    1 August, 2017


Keighley Town Council hosted a day of family fun to celebrate Yorkshire Day on Tuesday 1st August 2017.


The Town Mayor of Keighley, Councillor Mohammed Nazam, opened the event at 10.00am with a ribbon cutting. Residents and visitors alike were welcome to attend and to have their photographs taken with the Mayor.


The fun continued until 4.00pm, with free entry and free amusements all day.


Two face painters were on-hand to transform younger visitors into a look of their choice. In addition, there was an opportunity to get up close and personal with the ferrets of the Worth Valley Ferret Welfare charity. Sticking with the Yorkshire theme, locally-made Yorkshire flat caps were sold.


Other attractions included a bouncy castle, balloon modelling and an ice cream van.


The Chairman of Keighley Town Council’s Events and Leisure Committee, Councillor Luke Maunsell, said: “I am thrilled that Keighley Town Council’s Yorkshire Day celebration was a success. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who helped to make the day possible, including my fantastic committee who came up with brilliant ideas for the day and our Deputy Town Clerk who helped to turn them into reality. Going forward, I am hopeful that Keighley’s Yorkshire Day can be even bigger and better in the future”.
