Wetherby Town Council has funded a new town crest to be put in place on a lamppost beside the bridge in North Street to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

And a call has gone out this week for people to host three of the people coming from twin town Privas for the Jubilee weekend.

Mayor Cindy Bentley said: “It’s the largest group we have ever had (20 people) and I’m really struggling to find host families for all of them among our members.”

Hosts are needed for four nights for a single woman and a married couple, from June 1-5.

The party will be joining in all the Jubilee activities.
