Welcome to the November issue of the Ossett & Horbury Review. Christmas seems to have sneaked up very quickly this year, or perhaps time is whizzing by because I’m getting old! To get you in the Christmas mood, we’ve included the pick of the Christmas books, courtesy of Rickaro Books in Horbury because books are still one of the all time great gifts - top of my list every time. For the non-book lovers, we’ve also included a reminder of the wide variety of shops in Ossett & Horbury that are ideal for your Christmas shopping. When you think about the shops on your doorstep, you realise just how much shopping you can do locally, without having to brave the malls. Some of our advertisers this month are promoting some great Christmas offers and events, such as The Fleece, Rickaro Books, Lucy Art, Envy Windows and The Beauty Spa - check out the adverts for more details. Our Diary page also has details of local events for the next couple of months. To mark the remembrance of our brave soldiers killed in war, we’ve also included details of the work of local man, Eric Howard, in restoring the War Memorial at the bottom of Manor Road, Ossett. He has done a remarkable job and his work is a great tribute to the men who lost their lives in war. A big thank you as ever to our advertisers for making the Ossett & Horbury Review possible. Please remember to mention the magazine when responding to adverts. See you in December,

Ossett and Horbury, with their own unique identity, offer a wonderful variety of shops - great if you’re looking for that special gift and no battling with the crowds and queuing in traffic that is often the case with the bigger cities and shopping malls. With an abundance of cafes and restaurants both towns have a genuine friendly atmosphere. The shopping experience can actually be quite pleasurable, even to the die hard shopping-phobics with shopkeepers who actually know your name, remember you from last time you went in and make time to chat. Many local shops will offer that extra customer service to ensure you find what you are looking for. With this year’s financial uncertainty, many familiies are cutting back or at the very least trying to spread the cost by starting their shopping early. With pennies counting more than ever this year, why make repeated trips into crowded city and shopping centres when a fair amount of your shopping can be done locally. Make time to browse the local shops, speak to the shopkeepers and explain what you’re looking for. I think you’ll be surprised at how much Ossett and Horbury has to offer. In Ossett, great gifts can be found at C & J Armitage’s in the Wellgate, a treasure trove of gifts and the best selection of jigsaws and traditional games that I’ve seen in a long time, sitting happily alongside their artist supplies, prints and frames. If jewellery is your thing, make JJ Deans and Martin Brummitts a port of call - both great for giving inspiration as well as a great service. Other shops which you really must call into include Chocoholics, for the specialists chocolates, Special Thoughts and House of Empress for your cards and gift wrap and Angel Gifts for a whole range of gift ideas. Red Balloon in the Wellgate is fabulous if there is a baby in the family - the quality of babywear in this shop really must be felt to be appreciated. And for the more grown up - Dirt Corp Clothing in the Wellgate has brought really trendy brand names into the town centre. In Horbury, The Gift Shop on the Hight Street, is well worth a visit as is the Roundhouse, which smells divine as you walk in. Both have some really different gifts for you to choose from. Rickaro Books has long 14

been a favourite of ours, both because we love books and because the owner, Richard Knowles is so helpful and obliging. If there’s a book you’re looking for, he’ll find it for you - if ever there was a shop that could provide a gift for just about anyone, it’s Rickaro Books. And the bonus of Christmas is that Richard always has stock of signed copies of popular books - making a lovely gift that bit more special. But be warned, the signed copies always sell really well - don’t leave it too late! Portmans Jewellers and Mackay and Pearson are both fabulous shops to visit and I doubt you’ll leave either shop without having found a gift or two. Portman Jewellers have so much more than just jewellery, it’s a real aladdins cave and Mackay and Pearsons can custom make a piece of jewellery or a set to your specification - how special is that? A unique, custom made piece of jewellery to show just how much you care. If it’s floral gifts you’re looking for, there are some excellent florists in Ossett and Horbury. Amaryllis in Ossett and Blackburns in Horbury are both Interflora, which means you can order a gift for someone living elsewhere in this country, or even abroad, and be confident that the quality will be spot on. Being Interflora florists means that both shops also have to work to extremely high standards with their local deliveries. And for the bakers, if you need sugarcraft supplies to get on with your Christmas cake, Cakes and Favours in Ossett will certainly have just what you’re looking for. I don’t know how they do it, but everytime I go in there, they have even more to choose from. Sue, is always happy to help with advice and may even let you in on some trade secrets. For Foodies amongst you, The Black Olive in Horbury is an amazing delicatessen at which you can buy delicious olives, unusual pickles and vinegars and a whole raft of foods that make your mouth water by just looking at the packaging. Hampers can be made up for gifts and can be tailored to your specifications call in and ask for details. Hopefully, we’ve managed to give you a bit of a taste of what Ossett and Horbury can offer. The shops mentioned are really only half the story, but you’ll have to visit yourself to find out the rest. Happy Shopping!

The combined skills of the management team has ensured that Envy Windows consistently offer fantastic all round value for money, great service and excellent reliability. You won’t find pushy salesmen at Envy Windows but you will find their special offers are genuine and the prices for windows, doors and conservatories, very competitive. An amazing 15 year guarantee on all work, including glass and components, shows the confidence the team have in the quality of their products and the workmanship of their installers.

But with all work done in-house and by using their own surveyors, service and installation managers, quality can be, and is, tightly controlled. And the excellent customer service doesn’t stop with the installation. As much thought and consideration goes into the after sales service, with a unique and free annual service check offered which identifies potential problems before they become serious issues. So confident are the Envy Windows team in the quality and range of products within their showrooms that they offer a Transport Service, which will pick up customers unable to get to the showroom under their own steam - and there is absolutely no obligation to buy. How many companies give the same dedicated service to customers wanting one window installed or a whole house? At Envy Windows, you are guaranteed quality from start to finish, so why not call into one of the showrooms to see for yourself?

Service of Dedication Marks the Refurbishment of the Manor Road War Memorial In the graveyard near to the bottom of Manor Road in Ossett is a War Memorial to local men who lost their lives during World War I. It is a simple wooden cross set in a cairn with a plaque containing the names of the fallen soldiers. The wooden cross had fallen into a poor state of disrepair over the years and the plaque was in need to cleaning to enable visitors to clearly read the names on it. A local man, Eric Howard, stepped forward to volunteer his time and expertise to replace the wooden cross and re-point the cairn. He also cleaned the plaque. A service of dedication was attended by members of the Royal British Legion (Horbury, Sitlington & Ossett Branch), church members and interested members of the public. After gathering in the car park of the Fleece Inn on Spa Street, members of the Royal British Legion marched to the Graveyard
