Bingley Bonfire

. Posted in Events

The Bingley Bonfire, an iconic part of Bingley life, was started some 40 years ago by Bingley Round Table, followed by Baildon & District Round Table and is now run by Bingley Bonfire Ltd in association with the Rotary Club of Bingley Airedale. It is now one of the largest firework displays in the area.

This year's annual Firework Extravaganza once again took place in Myrtle Park, Bingley on Saturday 2nd November. The 40 year old event ran by the Rotary Club of Bingley Airedale was effected by a thunderstorm and we thank those who still turned out to support us. 

Further details will appear here regarding next year's event when information is available.

Plaque boost for struggling Bingley pubs

. Posted in BCT News

A historic Bingley pub has been commemorated with a civic plaque as landlords in the town vow to fight back in the face of tough competition and difficult trading conditions.

The Old White Horse Inn was given a blue tourist plaque over from Bingley Civic Society to mark its historical significance.

It comes as a number of pubs at the northern end of Main Street, including the Old White Horse and Fleece Hotel, are struggling to compete with increased competition and rising costs.
