The shocking scenes that unfolded in Ilkley town centre a week ago are a startling reminder that there are no lengths criminals will not go to in order to try to line their own pockets with ill-gotten gains. Shoppers, visitors and residents looked on aghast as a gang of masked men wielding axes tried to smash their way through the window of the Lister Horsfall jewellery store on Brook Street.

May I, through your paper, thank Tim and Helen Wilkinson, together with the Otley Chamber of Trade, for the magnificent Christmas Tree Festival held recently in Otley Parish Church. It was truly a sight not to be missed.

No church would want to be accused of putting profit before children – so it is hardly surprising that the diocese of Bradford has backed down over plans to build on land used by Guiseley Scout groups.

Christmas is upon us once again. For most of us this will be a time of family, fun, friends and revelry. It is a time to consider – once the presents are wrapped and the fridge stocked with food – the true meaning of the season.

One of the worst aspects of growing old is the sense of isolation that can set in, especially for those who live alone and who find their long-standing friends have perhaps moved away or gone into sheltered accommodation, or maybe are no longer with us.

Sometimes our faith in human nature is restored in a most welcome manner, as evidenced by the actions of people on the banks of the River Wharfe in Ilkley.
