A ferret which was found wandering near Bizzie Lizzie’s fish and chip shop in Swadford Street, Skipton, last week, has been reunited with its owner following an appeal in the Craven Herald. The friendly and well-cared for creature had initially been looked after at Skipton Police Station before being found a foster home. However, ferret and owner have now been reunited – but just how it came to be in the middle of Skipton remains a mystery.

Every effort is being made to ensure the Tour de France is a resounding success. And, to help the crowds spur on competitors as they pass through Craven in July, CheerSing is offering free workshops to help communities along the Grand Départ route devise, lead and perform their own songs, cheers and chants. The workshops are led by Leeds-based singer, composer and educator Louise Gibbs, pictured. “There will be hundreds, if not thousands, of people hoping to cheer along the cyclists and we’d love people to get involved in our project and create an inspiring wave of sound to motivate competitors as they speed by,” says Louise. “Anyone who likes the sound of making a lot of noise, having fun and learning some new vocal skills along the way should get down to one of our free workshops.” Each workshop lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, is open to all ages and requires no previous experience or skill. Local workshops will take place at Grassington’s Octagon Theatre on Sunday, Addingham Memorial Hall next Saturday, May 3, and Ermysted’s Grmmar School, Skipton, on Saturday, May 17. All start at 2pm. And, a further session will be held as part of Grassington Festival and will take place at Grassington Town Hall on Saturday, June 14, with a taster at noon and the workshop at 2pm. For more information, visit cheersing.co.uk or festival.yorkshire.com/events/cheer-sing or call Vanessa Bridge on 07711 969223.
