  1. Celebrating Sutton is an initiative that began with discussions involving some Sutton residents along with members of several key voluntary sector and statutory organisations including NYCC, NHS, Cross Hills Group Practice, Age UK, Carers’ Resource, Exclusively Inclusive and Yorkshire Housing. The purpose is to celebrate village life in Craven, beginning with Sutton, by focusing on what is strong about our community rather than what is wrong with it. We are looking at ways to bring people together to help reduce any feelings of loneliness and isolation and to promote wellbeing.

    This questionnaire has been put together which we would love people who either live or work in Sutton to complete. We intend to use the information gained to highlight things that are already working in our community as well as finding ways together to improve things for our community as a whole and individuals who might feel lonely or isolated for any reason (be it mental ill-health, physical ill-health, older adulthood, disability, parenthood, shift work patterns, lack of work or meaningful opportunity, fear of crime, etc)

    You can fill in this questionnaire anonymously but we would love to be able to make contact to look at how together we can do more of the good stuff and make improvements as needed.

    The appointment based surgeries will take place between 4.30pm, and 6.30pm at Sutton in Craven Village Hall, Main Street, BD20 7JD, giving residents the opportunity to raise personal or private issues, good or bad, on a one to one basis. Surgeries are by appointment only.

  4. Stage Four of the 2018 race, taking place on Sunday May 6, will start at the Piece Hall in Halifax. The first of six categorised climbs comes on the Côte de Hebden Bridge. The race will head up the cobbled Main Street in Haworth before dropping into Goose Eye for the next punishing ascent. 

    Crossing from Brontë Country into Craven, the route heads through Sutton-in-Craven to Skipton and then the next climb is looming on Barden Moor. The action will then head into the Dales before the riders contest the first intermediate sprint in view of Kilnsey Crag.

    The Côte de Park Rash will no doubt cement its place in Tour de Yorkshire folklore as the peloton grind their way up it, and the route continues on to Masham and then into Nidderdale before making a return to the formidable Côte de Greenhow Hill for the first time since 2016.

    The undulating terrain never relents and shortly after passing through Otley the next categorised climb is on the cards at Otley Chevin. If that wasn't enough, the Côte de Black Hill Road must also be crested before the race sweeps into Leeds and reaches a rip-roaring conclusion on The Headrow - on exactly the same spot as where the Tour de France started in 2014.

    The stage has been named 'The Yorkshire Terrier' and will cover 189.5km.
