Since the lockdown, walking has became a really good way of doing some extra exercise. Unfortunately, this has put more pressure on our countryside as more and more people have been out and about. To make sure that people stay safe, the Government has updated the Countryside Code during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Recent weather storms Ciara and Dennis have really put a strain on our local communities and the Airedale valley was once again flooded in many parts included Bingley. Throughout February, weeks of rain fell on multiple occasions in just a few hours and brought flash flooding all around. Now that the weather is starting to become more clement, we can see the damages left behind, especially along paths.
