THE Mayor of Skipton, Cllr John Dawson, will cut the ribbon at the official opening of Spear Travels – formerly Neil Rankin Travel - on the town's Newmarket Street on Saturday.

To celebrate the opening, the travel agent has teamed up with Skipton’s quirky new café, The Cake ‘Ole, in Craven Court and will be offering a free afternoon tea for two people (worth £17) with all new bookings confirmed in July.

And every Thursday from July 24 to September 11, Spear Travels will host a series on in-store promotions with some of the UK’s most popular holiday companies including Jet2 Holidays, Newmarket Holidays, Silversea Cruises and Red Sea Holidays.
