The Three Horse Shoes will close its doors on the 15th October while a major refurbishment by the owners The Unique Pub Company of Halifax is under way. 150,000 plus will be spent on bringing the pub back to its former glory. The company's Business Development officer Matthew Evans says that the pub will be completely refurbished, the front entrance "bus stop" as he called it will disappear and the outside of the building will be put back to its original stone "like it should be " he stated. "The pub" he said "has been allowed to run down these last few years and we want it to be put back to its former glory, with traditional food being served", a new kitchen will be installed. Although it will not be a family pub theme, children will be allowed in to eat, and it is not being transformed back into three rooms as rumour suggests. The company have all the necessary approvals to go ahead and they hope the work will be completed in time for Christmas

A sad day for Hillside Tara

It was a sad day for the residents of the Hillside estate when the committee members of the Tenants and residents association decided to call it a day. At a meeting held yesterday ( Tuesday ) , the committee met with Joan Gains the head of the Federation of Tenants and residents associations and after a lengthy discussion, the six remaining members Hazel Davenport, Pat Goddard, Betty Ogley, Val Sheard, Michelle King and Tracy Lucas decided that enough was enough. A committee member speaking on behalf of the others stated that the estate had lost interest since the opening eighteen months ago, and apart from the older residents on the estate, no one seemed to appreciate what the committee were trying to achieve, she said that she also felt sorry for the older residents because they felt crime had come down since Tara was opened by the Town council Mayor Pat Doyle in July 1998. The present Town Council Mayor Councillor Chris Sykes said that it was a real shame after the committee members had worked so hard to achieve what they had in the last eighteen months, and he felt sad that they had not received more support from the local residents
