West Yorkshire Mayoral Election, May 6
King's Church Halifax have pulled together a video introduction to most of the candidates standing in the election for West Yorkshire Mayor.
All seven candidates were invited to participate, either as part of the live Zoom recording or to send in a video. Apologies were received apologies from Tracy Brabin representing Labour and Co-Operative Party and there was no response from Waj Ali representing Reform UK or Thérèse Hirst representing English Democrats.
You can find more information on the role and purpose of the Mayor of West Yorkshire HERE.
More information on individual candidates can be found on their social media outlets:
New! Bible Trek with the Bible Society
The Bible Society is launching a new series of video journeys around key Biblical sites, led by Dr Andrew Ollerton.
The first of these is an Easter journey around Jerusalem, and is divided into eleven short videos which are being released between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. If you want to see where it all happened, this should be a real help. Other journeys will visit Galilee, Ephesus and other locations - and even show the toilet on which the Apostle Paul sat... probably. Discover the sites where famous Bible events took place, from Hezekiah’s Tunnel to the home town of Jesus. With added historical notes and reflections, experience Bible stories and see why they matter today.
Waste no time, but use the button below to find out more. Bon voyage!

Community Care Volunteers
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) response in the Wetherby Ward
One of the encouraging things about the current Covid-19 pandemic is that many people are volunteering their services to help those who are in need.
It is important that this co-ordinated wisely, both to protect those in need and those that volunteer. Our three ward councillors (Cllrs. Alan Lamb, Norma Harrington and Linda Richards) have drawn attention to the dedicated volunteer network that has been established by Leeds City Council.
Please note that volunteers should be healthy and low risk.
There are two tiers of volunteers:
Volunteers who have a current DBS and would be willing to volunteer to carry out non-personal care tasks to assist people with care and support needs. Such tasks might include: shopping, collecting prescriptions, preparing a meal, assistance with laundry, just checking/reassurance by visit or phone call, sitting with someone for a while. This list is not exhaustive. We would support volunteers with training where appropriate and they would be issued with an identification badge.
People looking out for their neighbours who may be in some way or another vulnerable but not in receipt of formal care whether self-funded or state supported. This might be about supporting people who choose to self-isolate. It will also include the deployment of volunteer community leaders to support community cohesion related activities.
If you would like to volunteer, please sign up at www.doinggoodleeds.org.uk.
