It’s Oakworth and Eldwick by Royal appointment!

Two local clubs are celebrating a regal time.
The home grounds of Oakworth and Eldwick Juniors have been granted protected status in a project to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympics in London.
Bronte Fields, at Goose Cote Lane, Oakworth, and Gilstead Recreation Ground have both been given Queen Elizabeth II Fields designation, which means they will be protected as a permanent legacy of this summer’s two events.
National charity Fields in Trust said five Bradford-area playing fields, including the two in the Keighley area will be protected and display a plaque in time for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June.
Deeds of designation will be drawn unto ensure the land is legally protected.
The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge will protect 2,012 recreational spaces in communities across the country.
As a bonus, the two playing fields will be eligible to apply for a share of £1 million of funding to ensure their continuing protection, giving permanent access for future generations.
