  • Campaign to reinstate Summer Sunday Washburndale and Nidderdale service

    On December 5th John Grogan, MP for Keighley, submitted an Early Day Motion in Parliament - no. 650 - calling on the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and Yorkshire Water to support the re-introduction in 2018 of the Summer Sunday Nidderdale Service which will give people from West Yorkshire direct access to Washburndale and Nidderdale, serving no less than seven reservoirs.

    Please can we suggest that you send an email today to your MP to ask them to sign it. For further information on how to do this, please click here.
