This community website was set up in 2016 to help keep you up to date with everything that is happening in the Kirkby Malzeard, Laverton and Dallowgill area, and three years on we have had over 53,000 visits to the site. It is a community venture by local residents, so if you want anything included just let us know! All inclusions, including information about businesses, are free. We hope you find this website interesting - new information is being added all the time, particularly to the Events Calendar which is updated regularly.

* Kirkby Malzeard Home Guard photo added to Local History page - thanks to Sheila Douglas for providing this. See if you recognise anyone from that generation.

* The Planning Inspectorate have given permission for up to 5 houses to be built on the field next to the Grange on Back Lane South despite opposition from local residents, the Parish Council and Harrogate Planning Authority. This will mean more traffic on Back Lane and Main Street - the Parish Council have asked Highways what measures they are intending to take to ensure pedestrian safety on Back Lane.

* The Rose Lea Tea Rooms is open for the summer - opening times on the Local Businesses page.

* There is also an extra bus service during the summer on Sundays and Bank Holidays calling in both Kirkby and Laverton - details on 'Local Bus Services' page.
