KEIGHLEY businesses are being urged to help add a splash of colour to the town centre this summer.

Gardener Steve Thorpe is asking firms to consider sponsoring a hanging basket, to be placed in North Street or Cavendish Street.

The cost is £100 a basket, which includes all maintenance throughout the summer.

“I’ve got a few businesses that have said they are coming on board but I would love to hear from more,” said Steve.

“There will be no Keighley BID baskets this year – which would usually be 38 – so that will leave a considerable gap.

“I know how much pleasure people get from seeing the hanging baskets.

“They add a bit of colour to the town.

“And after all that’s happened in the past year, people will benefit from a boost now more than ever.”

The baskets will be put in place early next month.
