Since moving to Bingley seven years ago and starting a family here, I've picked up a lot of info about what's going on the local area which I'm happy to share!

Bingley’s Candidates For the 2017 General Election

With the general election coming up I thought it might be useful to supply some information on our candidates for the Shipley/Bingley area. I have contacted Philip Davies (Conservative)  Sophie Walker (Women’s Equality Party), Steve Clapcote (Labour) and Caroline  Jones (Lib Dem) with the same questions. I will update this page with their responses as they come through.

Labour – Steve Clapcote

First of all, I want to say how shocked and sickened I am by what happened in Manchester last night. The deliberate targeting of children by a suicide bomber is abhorrent.

1) Please tell us about yourself  I’m 45 years old and was born in Poole, Dorset. My mum and dad both left school at 15 without any formal qualifications and went on to work as a shop assistant at the Co-op (mum) and a clerical worker for the local council and then a delivery driver (dad). I went to state schools then worked as a stockman on a farm before becoming the first member of my family to go to university. My scientific career has taken me around the UK and to Toronto, Canada. I moved to West Yorkshire in 2008 for a job at Leeds University, where I teach and lead research on neurological disorders and their treatment. Outside work, I’m a governor of a primary school and a secondary school. In my spare time, I enjoy pottering around in my garden.

2) If elected what would you do to improve Bingley? As MP for Bingley, I’d have a voice in Parliament to speak up for the town. Being an MP also gives one the opportunity and raised profile to get publicity in the media for various campaigns. Bingley is a nice place to live and benefits from its rail link into Leeds and Bradford. But the economic activity in the town centre has declined with the closure of the Bradford and Bingley HQ, which brought jobs and workers into the centre – these people used local shops and food outlets and boosted the local economy. I want Bingley to be an attractive place to live and work. As your MP, I would talk to local residents and businesses for their views on how they think Bingley could be improved and what they would like doing. I believe in bottom-up rather than top-down politics, and I’ll be there to help wherever I can.

3) What are your thoughts on the cuts to education, if elected how would you oppose this? Ditto NHS.  I am opposed to the cuts in education and the lack of funding to the NHS. As the Labour candidate, I’ve been opposing the cuts by telling residents what they mean in terms of fewer teachers for each local school, which can be obtained from schoolcuts.org.uk. If elected as MP for Bingley, the chances are that we would have a Labour government (as Labour likely needs to win in Shipley to have a majority). We will make sure schools are properly resourced by reversing the Conservatives’ cuts and ensuring that all schools have the resources they need. We will introduce a fairer funding formula that leaves no school worse off, while redressing the historical underfunding of certain schools. We will reduce class sizes to less than 30 for all five-, six-, and seven-year-olds, and seek to extend that as resources allow. We will introduce free school meals for all primary school children, paid for by removing the VAT exemption on private school fees. If there isn’t a Labour government, I’ll keep speaking on school funding cuts and asking questions of education ministers, to hold the government to account for the damage that they are doing.
On the NHS, Labour will commit to over £30 billion in extra funding over the next Parliament through increasing income tax for the highest 5 per cent of earners and by increasing tax on private medical insurance, and we will free up resources by halving the fees paid to management consultants.

4) Bingley Children’s centre has now been effectively closed – it’s a huge loss to this town. How would you have helped prevent its closure? Sure Start children’s centres, and the support they give to vulnerable and hard-to-reach parents, were one of the great achievements of the previous Labour government, but under the Conservatives 1,200 Sure Start children’s centres have been lost. Labour will halt the closures and increase the amount of money available for Sure Start. That extra funding would increase the opening hours of Bingley’s children’s centre and mean that it wouldn’t be effectively closed any more.

5) What are your views on the proposed incinerator? I’m joining Keighley’s Labour candidate John Grogan in opposing the plans for an incinerator on the proposed site.

6) What are your views regarding the old B and B site? The latest I heard was that Lidl will submit a planning application for a supermarket on the site to Bradford Council shortly. While I’m sure that Aldi wouldn’t appreciate the competition, I’m not opposed to Lidl’s proposal in principle. I think the site should be used for jobs and make the centre of Bingley more attractive.

7) Why should we vote for you?:- To be completed.

8) Why should we vote for Labour?:- To be completed.

Lib Dem – Caroline Jones

1) Please tell us about yourself. I was born in West Yorkshire and now live in Burley-in-Wharfedale. I am the business manager at a primary school, where my job involves working closely with staff, children and parents, all aspects of finance and funding, HR and facilities management.
I am married to Bob and have three grown-up children.

2) If elected what would you do to improve Bingley? Bingley has a new ambitious town council. I was the first chair of Burley Parish Council so I know how it feels to be starting from scratch I would work with the town council and the local district councillors to get the best deal for Bingley
3) What are your thoughts on the cuts to education – if elected how would you oppose this?  The Liberal Democrats oppose the cuts to school budgets and would invest an extra £7bn to protect against rising costs. This would be paid for by not enacting a number of Conservative tax cuts including not cutting the rate of corporation tax.

We would put 1p on income tax as an interim measure to invest £6bn a year in health and social care. In the longer term and as a replacement for the 1p Income Tax rise, we would commission the development of a dedicated health and care tax on the basis of wide
consultation, possibly based on a reform of National Insurance contributions,
4) Bingley Children’s centre has now been effectively closed – it’s a huge loss to this town. How would you have helped prevent its closure? The Government has made massive cuts to local council budgets which have disproportionately affected areas like BMDC at the expense of richer, Conservative voting areas in the south of England. The Liberal Democrats on Bradford Council have made their own budget proposals including cutting the level of allowances paid to the overlarge number of Labour councillors who are eligible for ‘ special responsibility allowances’.

5) What are your views on the proposed incinerator? We should reduce, recycle and reuse materials to cut the amount of waste produced and I don’t think we take this seriously enough. Any incinerator application has to go through a strict regulation process as part of the planning process and would have to operate to strict environmental standards. I support the objectors who are rightly trying to hold the powers that be to account by seeking a judicial review of the process. The alternative to incineration, once waste has been reduced is landfill which is expensive and difficult.
6) What are your views regarding the old B and B site? The quicker it gets built on the better but I do worry that there may be too many food outlets which could result in one closing leaving another vacant site somewhere else in the town.

7) Why should we vote for you?
8) Why should we vote Lib Dem?

This country needs a proper opposition in Parliament to hold the Government to account and to scrutinise what they do. That is essential in a democracy. Labour have shown over the last two years under Jeremy Corbyn that they are simply not up the job. A group of Lib Dem MPs will make it their job to make sure that a majority Conservative administration is not able to steamroller through everything they want.

10 School Mum Rules

Every mum (and dad) with a school age child knows that the real stresses and strains only begin the September after your first child’s fourth birthday. From that moment onward, you are now part of a “school community” and everything that goes with it. Of course it’s a great opportunity to meet new friends, but also brings a lot of “learning” (and not just for your child) with it too. If you don’t know the rules, you’ll be a broken bleeding  mess by Christmas. Here we go…

  1. Don’t get road rage when parking at school. I did this once, I pulled in to let someone pass and another mum decided to overtake. I shouted from my window and glared. It wasn’t pretty. Thankfully soon after the mum in question got a job and we never had to see each other again. I live in fear of this situation changing.
  2. Don’t get mad when your child isn’t invited to a party. I have named this Party Rage. Soon you won’t care and will in fact be glad as a) it’s one less present to buy and b) it’s one less party to attend. Just think of it as part of life’s rich tapestry. Whatever you do, don’t question anyone about why your child wasn’t invited. This leads to a result similar to rule 1.
  3. Always avoid eye contact. That way you won’t have to ever talk to anyone. It’s for the best. Wear sunglasses as often as possible.
  4. Even if you’ve previously talked to someone, had them over for lunch and given them a bag full of clothes, that doesn’t mean they will acknowledge you. They may be following rule 3, who’s to know?
  5.  Be careful about who you befriend on Facebook – eager friending early on can lead to awkward defriending later on when you unwittingly do something terrible to offend. You will then ignore each other for the next 7 years, refer to rule 3.
  6. Watch out for the Social Climber mums – nice as pie to you week 1, pretend you don’t exist by week 3 (when “cooler” mums have made their acquaintance).
  7. If someone has their clothes on inside out, don’t mention it. Ever. Ditto hair brushing.  Ditto maniac child – pretend other people’s children are lovely at all times despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary and you can expect the same back.
  8. Encourage your child to be friends with a child who has a dad without a wandering eye. And I’m not talking about a medical condition. When you’re all standing there chatting and he’s checking you out, it’s just not cricket.
  9. Wear gym gear every day even if you don’t go. Just to make people feel guilty.
  10. Oh and always be on time, support the school, attend assemblies, encourage good manners, follow uniform and homework policies and don’t hassle the school secretary EVER…

What are your school mum rules?

Foundry Hill Bar and Lounge

Bingley Mums has a new site sponsor – Foundry Hill Bar and Lounge! Somewhere I am ashamed to say that I have never been to until recently. But I thought it might be a nice idea to do a “mystery shopper” style date night with hubby, so I could get a true picture.

index (2).png

Foundry Hill has recently been taken over to be run as a family business by Emma and Andrew Bremner.  The family including two children Amy & Adam, live on a farm producing high welfare free range eggs – so all eggs served are direct from their other business The Rainbow Egg Company, based in Oxenhope.  Their highly experienced Head Chef, David Hartley, is passionate about preparing all dishes from fresh using good quality, locally sourced ingredients.  Even their burger buns, pasta and focaccia bread are made in their kitchen.  Nothing is bought in except fresh ingredients.

Andrew says, “I am only three weeks into running Foundry Hill and while I am very keen to preserve its already excellent reputation and small, but quality menu I am keen to build on that success.  We plan on bringing back sharing platters to the menu, something for kids and parents to enjoy together.  We are also planning on offering reduced portion options on selected main courses for smaller appetites both young and old.  Because we make all food from scratch though we are more than happy to customize meals where possible according to customer requirements such as serving starters as main children’s meals or splitting portions of mains to share.”

Foundry Hill has been the top rated restaurant in Bingley on Trip Advisor for a few years now.  This is something the new owners are very proud of and something they aspire to keep.  They are one of the few bars in Bingleyto offer an extensive cocktail, mocktail and shooters menu plus their gin selection is growing rapidly, 15 at last count including Masons Yorkshire Tea Gin.  They have 5 guest ales a week plus an extensive range of wine and spirits.  Their Prosecco from House of Townsend has won a few awards and is sold by the glass as well as the bottle (it’s stunning).

We went on a Friday night about 7pm and the bar area was very busy indeed and we had to push our way through to the “lounge” area as we had booked in for a meal. If you decide to eat at Foundry Hill, I really recommend booking as if we hadn’t, I doubt very much that we would have got a table. In the lounge area, there are a couple of sofas and tables – I would have taken photos but it seemed a bit rude to do that when people were eating, so I didn’t.

The bar has a really wide range of truly good drinks, including lots of draft beers and fizz – I tried the pink fizz which was stunning – as good as champagne. My husband had something from the gin menu – they had LOADS of gins available, and posh tonic too. So far so good.

IMG_0868 (1).JPG

I was surprised how busy the place was – in the lounge area there was a combination of people eating and people sitting in groups with their drinks, but there was a nice atmosphere. The menu is good with something for everyone, we went for burgers.

16115016_1573265652689257_1131432923775329772_n.jpg

You can choose between french fries and thick cut chips, so we had one of each…

IMG_0872 (1).JPG

IMG_0881 (1).JPG

Now I’m not really a burger sort of person, but I have to say these were delicious, you could really tell that the meat was high quality and that the beef burgers are made by hand in house.

I’m also quite fussy about wine (though not later on in the night) and I thought the wine list was spot on and also good value. We ordered a glass of wine each and I must say it slipped down very easily.

IMG_0884 (1).JPG

During the day there are good facilities for children including baby change and high chairs, as well as a children’s menu.

We had a great experience and I have to say the waiting staff were very attentive and couldn’t do enough for us (they didn’t know I was doing a review). The busy-ness of the bar didn’t affect our enjoyment as all our drinks were brought to our table. I really recommend Foundry Hill for date nights, evenings out with friends or with the whole family. A real local gem!

  • Food service Wed-Sat 12noon – 9pm (last orders 8:30pm) Sunday 12noon – 6pm (last orders 5:30pm)
  • Function room available for hire.
  • Come and enjoy 2 burgers and 2 drinks for just £20 every Wednesday

Foundry Hill have paid to be a site sponsor but all thoughts are my own.

Croft and Sons Home Improvement

Bingley Mums has a new site sponsor! As regular readers know, Bingley Mums was set up to help connect local families to local businesses and generally help to improve Bingley in whatever way we can! However, running a website and paying for hosting etc does come at an occasional cost, which is covered by the generous site sponsors – I am so grateful to them for supporting Bingley Mums.

Anyway, more about our new sponsor. Croft and Sons Home Improvement are a local handyman service able to offer a full range of home and garden maintenance and improvement – from large scale projects to odd jobs, they can do them all!

1979951_756219211195440_4592725702452925125_o.jpg

Bingley Mum Rachel says – “Croft and Sons do anything that would fall under odd jobs and general home improvement – so from changing light bulbs and leaky taps to larger projects like fitting kitchens & bathrooms. They are insured and have a current DBS check – most of all, they turn up when they say they will!”

Croft and Sons have sent over some examples of work that they’ve recently undertaken.

The Hands on Babies  Baby Massage and Yoga classes provide the ideal opportunity to meet  new friends and share your own personal experience in a friendly  environment.

Support Local Mums in Business

This Christmas wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all made an effort to buy something from a local business? Every time I buy from Amazon, I think, I’m making a rich person even richer! But if you buy from a local business, you help to change someone’s life and make something they’re really passionate about into a success! Here are just a handful of local businesses you can support this year, and also get some truly wonderful and original gifts to treasure forever.

  1. The Little Silver Company – Beautiful bespoke fine silver jewellery and keepsakes including Children’s handprints, footprints and fingerprints. Ceri says, “I set up from my love of jewellery and all things of sentimental value – there was no better keepsake than my children’s handprints and fingerprints captured forever in silver and so my business began..”15129538_844263485677214_503707997909684499_o.jpg
  2. Leanne who runs Leanne’s Little Gift Company says, “I set up as a way of being able to do a job I love whilst being able to be a stay at home mum. We make and sell items for all occasions, if you can’t find a colour or design you are looking for just message us and we will try our best to source it.”15232236_222378111524278_8726140556895182060_n.jpg

3. Jade says, “I set up Blossom Craft Company by myself not long ago. I have a 4 year old in reception and a 3 year old in nursery – I’m hoping that this gives me the best of both worlds- working from home being creative whilst having my little humans run around me! I have qualifications in fashion design and a BA Hons degree in costume design and textiles – this is what I enjoy! Creating ! .. my page at the moment is full of Christmas delights and hair bows for your little ‘uns.. and big ‘uns.”
