Steeton greenhouse will be a fine tribute to councillor

Steeton Primary School plans to build a greenhouse in memory of a councillor.
The school gardening club will place a plaque in the greenhouse in tribute to the late Michael Kelly.
The £1,000 funding for the greenhouse came from a Bradford Council fund originally administered by Coun Kelly.
Each of the three Bradford councillors representing the Craven ward – Michael Kelly, Andrew Mallinson and Adrian Naylor – were given a budget to spend on local community projects.
Coun Kelly, who lived in Addingham, died last month at the age of 70 after a long illness.
His Conservative colleague Coun Mallinson decided the Steeton school would be a worthy beneficiary of the cash pot.
He said: “This is something lasting in Michael’s memory. Gardening and flowers were his passion.”
Other money from Coun Kelly’s budget will be spent on youth projects across the Craven ward.
Steeton Primary School spokesman Elsie Vogeler said the new greenhouse would be placed in the school’s wild area and would support the existing vegetable growing projects undertaken by the children at the school.
