KEIGHLEY MP John Grogan has lent support to a special bus service that helps townspeople get into the Yorkshire Dales. He took a trip on a DalesBus to Kettlewell then a short walk and pub lunch to get a taste of the delights opened up to hikers and daytrippers by the long-running service. After meeting DalesBus bosses he called on the Yorkshire Dales National Park authority to join West Yorkshire councils in funding the service.

A CAMPAIGN to restore a direct bus connection between Keighley and Halifax now has backing from two MPs. Keighley MP John Grogan and Halifax MP Holly Lynch have joined forces to call for this link to be revived. Wife and husband couple Tricia and Hugh Lowth began the campaign back in early 2016 when they were living in Cross Roads. Since then the baton has been taken up by Worth Valley ward councillor Rebecca Poulsen and Oxenhope parish councillor Peter McManus.
