Keighley groups are being encouraged to join together to apply for Bradford Council grants.

The council’s Keighley Area Committee has so far given out £4,500 through its Connecting Communities programme.

The programme, part of Keighley’s £11,700 annual Community Chest fund, aims to unite community groups that would not normally work together.

The money has funded a walks leaflet for Cliffe Castle, bird boxes at Keighley Tarn, and First World War memorial activities in Silsden.
