Over the past 3 days I have seen men in high viz coats walking around the proposed land for building. I am sure I saw Skippy talking to them on Tuesday, are they about to start work?. ( Had a fire going yesterday maybe they are just drying out the land!)

The land has been purchased by a local businessman and international sporting ground/pitch expert.

He is having 10,000 willow trees planted which on maturity will be used to make cricket bats.

Now that’s a new industry for the growing town and something else for Silsden to brag about.

Not at all gingo, in the right conditions willow will grow 10` a year.

They can be harvested for bio fuel in 3 – 4 years when they can be 40` tall.

They would have enough girth to cut for willow bats in 10 to 14 years.

What would we do without "Wikipedia"?
