    The residents of John O'Gaunts are being encouraged to get their estate's needs formally recognised in writing, by completing the Rothwell Neighbourhood Forum's residents' survey.

    Cllr Stewart Golton (Lib Dem, Rothwell) said: "The community on John O'Gaunts have a history of being let down by the council when it comes to estate improvements. Too often an investment programme will start, only to be cut short halfway through leaving half the community short-changed.

    Local Lib Dem councillor Stewart Golton (Lib Dem, Rothwell) is celebrating the long awaited delivery of a footbridge over the Aire at Skelton Lake near Woodlesford.

    The bridge was promised a decade ago but plans were mired when squabbles with the old Coal Authority surfaced over money.

    A few years ago, Sustrans were given the task of constructing the bridge with an accessible path, linking the lake to Rothwell Country Park and the Wykebeck Valley Way. The bridge has now been completed, with only a final section of the path to be finished for it to open to the public.

    Otley and Yeadon councillors Sandy Lay, Colin Campbell and Ryk Downes have called for more targeted support for parents and families after figures show that nearly a fifth of all ten year olds in Otley and Yeadon are now obese.

Experts have concluded that obesity at such a young age can lead to diseases such as type 2 diabetes and respiratory, heart, bone and joint problems even in childhood, while studies have shown that their lives could be shortened by as much as seven years on average, compared to non-obese people.
