Mayor of Hebden Royd, John Beacroft-Mitchell, pictured in the centre
I am delighted to say that a very good friend of ours and outgoing Mayor of Hebden Royd, John Beacroft-Mitchell, is standing for election in the forthcoming Calderdale Council elections.
I have found him a man of great integrity, vision and community engagement, combined with a strong sense of social justice.
He is standing in place of Cllr Peter Coles (who you may remember for his critical opposition to the "wonky houses" development of Garden Street and his vocal support for Kerbside) who is retiring from his post in the Luddendenfoot Ward.
You can find out more about him by reading his blog or following him on Twitter.
