The Police have just notified the Clerk of a group of 10 children playing on School Lane Playing Fields. This area has been fenced and closed off and they are trespassing.

They have been moved off, but I must ask you to keep your children at home and to inform you that the Police have the powers to issue fines to those who are not adhering to the rules.

Birstall Gala 2020 - CANCELLED

It is with deep regret that due to the Coronavirus epidemic and the Governments advice on mass gatherings, the Council has taken the decision to cancel this years Gala which was scheduled for 20 June 2020.

It is regrettable, but matters are outside the control of the Council and the interests of health & safety for all is paramount, there are no timescales for when this epidemic will be over and so risks must be reduced for all concerned.
