THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 778

This week in The Press, read exclusively about the plans a local housing developer has to build a new library in Mirfield. 

The scheme would include the construction of a new two-storey facility nearby, plus a new high-end restaurant in the old library building.

Find out all the details tomorrow...

Also, declarations of interest for North Kirklees' closed museums will be made next week and community groups for both Red House and Dewsbury Museum are hopeful they have plans in place to take over the running of them.

And a MAJOR West End production will be coming to Batley in the summer – and you could be involved.

Plus in sport, you can read the unique sporting journey of Lamonté Gaddis, who's living the American dream with Shaw Cross Sharks.

It's all in The Press - the only paper that's still got North Kirklees covered.
