Be Seen Be Safe on your bicycle.
Now the days are shorter many people, including schoolchildren are forced to ride their bikes when it is dark going to or from work or school. It is illegal to ride a bike in the hours of darkness without front and rear lights. Car drivers have a hard enough job seeing cyclists in busy traffic without increasing the risk further. Don't make yourself an unseen target - Get a Light and Get a Life.
Get along to the Big Red Bike Company next to the Odeon in Harrogate where, for the next two weeks they are offering a 10 % discount on all bike lights in store which they will also fit for free. They are also offering free advice on fitting lights and reflectives to your bike and to yourself and on the steps you can take to keep safe when riding after dark.
Sets of lights start from £15 a pair (before discount)

THE HARROGATE CHARITY CHRISTMAS CARD SHOP
The Harrogate Charity Christmas Card Shop, which has been running for close to 40 years, is now open for 2014 Christmas cards. Thanks to the continuing generosity of James Brindley of 29 James Street, Harrogate, who are again providing free space in their store, the Card Shop will run until Sunday 14th December.
The Card Shop is run entirely by volunteers, so, coupled with the provision of space for which no charge is made, this means that the full retail value of the cards sold is returned to the charities represented. All profits from the sales of these cards go towards supporting these worthwhile causes. Over the years, it is calculated that well over £1.1 million has been raised for the participating charities.
This year, the following national and local charities will be selling their cards:-
• British Heart Foundation
• The Carers’ Resource
• Guide Dogs
• Harrogate Hospital and Community Friends
• Henshaw’s Society for Blind People
• HFT (The Home Farm Trust)
• Marie Curie Cancer Care
• Martin House Hospice
• Open Arms Malawi
• The Parkinson’s Society
• Talking Newspapers
• The British Thyroid Foundation
• Yorkshire Air Ambulance
Please come and support us and send a charity Christmas card this year. You will find us on the top floor of the Harrogate store. Full details of where to find James Brindley can be found on their website, www.jamesbrindley.com.

Frank Brangwyn was an outstanding poster artist of the First World War. A restored set of his powerful large-scale war posters is on show at the Mercer Art Gallery in Harrogate until January 2015. These images offer both a unique social insight into the propaganda of the period as well as reflecting the artist’s personal concerns.
This is the first time that the posters, all lithographs that have recently been cleaned and restored, have been displayed by Harrogate Arts and Museums. The posters were donated to the gallery by Harrogate artist and printmaker Oliver Pemsel and the exhibition is curated by Brangwyn expert Dr Elizabeth Horner.
Gallery opening times: Tuesday-Saturday 10.00 - 17.00, Sundays 14.00 - 17.00.
On: 10.00 Tue 24th Jun 2014
