MANY congratulations go to Keighley councillor Abid Hussain after he was formally installed this week as Lord Mayor of Bradford.

Clearly it is a very proud moment for him personally and his family, but also for the town.

We wish him well during his tenure as civic head and hope his appeal enjoys every success.

To also have the Deputy Lord Mayor from Keighley is a real feather in the cap for the town.

And it only seems right to recognise the efforts of outgoing Mayor, Geoff Reid.

Although Bradford-based, he has not been a stranger to Keighley during his term in office and his attendance at numerous events has been appreciated.
