In this week’s Batley and Birstall News:

A heartbroken family has thanked the community for their support during their daughter’s battle with a rare metabolic disorder.

Ava Nicole Hosier tragically passed away last Wednesday, a week before her first birthday.

ALSO: Batley Cemetery Lodge is to go under the hammer this month - to the disappointment of some.

The Grade II listed building placed just inside the cemetery gates, on Cemetery Lane, is to be auctioned-off by Kirklees Council.

AND FINALLY: Four top bosses are leaving the district’s under-fire hospitals trust in a boardroom shake-up which will save £750,000 a year.

Don’t miss all this, plus: the fallout from Batley Bulldogs 30-10 defeat to lowly Whitehaven, find out what bizarre items Yorkshire Water has found in its sewage network, and don’t forget to read Educating Yorkshire’s Jonny Mitchell’s column.
