Steeton’s new Morrisons mini-market is officially open.

The Morrisons M Local in Skipton Road, near Airedale Hospital, has created 20 jobs.

The site was identified by a member of staff Paul Pratt who passes the site on his way to work.

Mr Pratt said: “I live very close to Steeton and noticed the empty site many times.”

The store will be opened at 9am by Meg Crossley, an accident and emergency consultant from the hospital, along with store manager, Nick Eglington.

Also present will be Ray Horsfall, a long-standing Steeton resident who has been employed by the supermarket chain for 56 years.
