Further along the road towards Silsden it looks like someone has had a go at a sign at the football club.The sign showing up and coming games is bent right over almost touching the wall.Makes you wonder if it was the wind. I remember the roof of the golf driving range getting blown off.

We have reported it to the police and they are looking in to it. The wind hasn't blown it down as it would have still been in the field, the cows don't like metal other than for scratching so it looks like some scumbag has taken it away for whatever reason. The cost of replacing isn't cheap so if we have to increase our prices next year blame the culprits. If you see it around anywhere please telephone 01535 654747 and ask for David Blagden.

The Silsden Car Boots will carry on.

Thanks to silsden.net and those who posted it for publishing this incident.

I can assure you the wind in the bottom of the Aire Valley could easily have lifted the sign clear of the field and even the road.

But I am not saying thats what happened

A new sign should be up this week with the dates on but it is always in the Keighley News, Craven Herald and T & A plus on their web sites. Add to that the fact we are well established hopefully it won't be more than an expensive annoyance.

There is no way the wind removed it unless it was carrying a screwdriver.

Thanks to one of our regular Car Booters who was at the AGH Car Boot today who told me he thought he saw our board in the beck opposite the Golf Driving Range we have been able to retrieve the old board and re-erect it. It had been bent almost to a 90 degree angle and still had some screws through the metal in place. Looks like it was unscrewed at one end then bent in half to get it off the posts. The wind would have had to have been very clever to do it.

Our sincere thanks for this information without which there wouldn't be a board until the new one is ready.

Their finger prints would then be on the board!
If its bent and some screws are still in I would make wind 80/20 fav. Whatever I would make double sure it is secure because if it was the wind and it happened again and hit a car it could be serious.

Incidently if it happened on Tuesday the wind was strong enough for planes to abort landing at Leeds/Bradford

This despite planes can land in these winds
