Official opening of Memorial Gardens

World War II Veteran Les Steward re-opened the newly refurbished Memorial Gardens in Mytholmroyd this Saturday 11th September, 2010. Spring flowering bulbs were planted followed by a hog roast in the Dusty Miller car park, a bucking bronco, a live band and more. Hundreds of people attended the event. Janet Battye thanked the many organisations and people who had been involved in the project. Jade Smith Secretary of Royd Regeneration who took the project forward initially and saw it through to fruition was thanked and presented with a "thank you" bouquet of flowers. Video of the event is now on the website - see below.
