In your Spenborough Guardian this week

A young man has been locked up after hurling a petrol bomb in Hightown; Britain and Ireland’s Top Model Hopeful Emma Ward wins the first ‘Cover of the week’; and the owners of a cafe in Cleckheaton fear the Westgate road closure could put them out of business.

Plus meet Bramble and Rosie, two cute donkeys who have taken up residence in Hunsworth, and see a fantastic picture preview of Cleckheaton Folk Festival and Hunsworth’s Yorkshire Wartime Experience.

If sport is your thing we look ahead to a crucial weekend of action for Spen Victoria as they chase promotion from Bradford Cricket League Division Two.

We also talk to Dewsbury boxer Ashley Vanzie who looks set for a bright future in the ring following a brilliant gold medal in Haringey last week. He reveals his big plans for the future and the inspiration behind his success.

We have a round-up of all the latest cricket action, a report on an encouraging display from Padgett’s in the British Superbikes Championship and a two-page junior sport special.
