Council cash has been earmarked to tackle problems in villages including Culling-worth, Harden, Wilsden and Denholme.

Shipley Area Committee was recently given £60,000 by Bradford Council to meet priorities in its local action plans.

Members decided to split £36,000 equally between their six wards, with councillors in each – including Bingley Rural – deciding how to spend their £6,000 share.

A further £14,000 will be spent on summer holiday activities for children, with Bingley Rural getting £2,300.

The remaining £10,000 was added to the committee’s Community Chest budget.
