The sale is part of the Garage Sale Trail, which is happening all over the UK today, for more details see https://garagesaletrail.co.uk/
Hebden Bridge is inundated with folk from the BBC busily filming the second series of Happy Valley. You may remember the first series which was an exciting and suspenseful drama set in Hebden Bridge. Silly Billy’s Toy Shop is being featured in Happy Valley Series 2 but at the moment the filming is taking place in Albert Street, Hebden Bridge. This is good for the Crew in terms of food as they have the diverse Sandwich Creations from Pennine Provisions and also the traditional chips and fish fayre from Hebden’s only remaining fish and chip shop in Crown Street, where the picture below is taken. The Author remembers when there used to be three here in this small town !

The final episode of the original series of Thunderbirds was shown on TV ten days after I was born, imagine that!!
Now Thunderbirds are back from March this year in an all new show on ITV. Silly Billy’s is proud to have Thunderbird’s Figurines in our shop to buy now, stocks are limited.
Frank Skinner is a long-time fan of Tunderbirds and the new TV series, Thunderbirds are Go, has received a far warmer reception than the Film of the series that was made in 2004, which the late Gerry Anderson described as “the biggest load of crap I have ever seen” with a paltry rating of 4.2 on IMDB

This morning I was wondering why the proposed site of Sainsbury’s at the old fire station land in Valley road was now fenced off completely. For the past few years whilst local residents and shop-keepers fought off Sainsbury’s plan to build a store on the site, the developers who bought the land had been using it in the interim as a car park. Now the developers, Eshton Gregory of Leeds, have decided to fight the appeal and from last week have closed the site off completely.
This seems an extremely petty act as it would not require much effort to put the land back to it’s car park status and Hebden Bridge is desperately in need of car parking space for visitors to the Town.
It seems now though that the developers are trying to push the plans through and overturn rulings within Leeds high Court, great.!! All funded by Sainsbury’s. We have written about the Hebden Bridge Sainsbury’s protests in earlier posts.
The Hebden bridge times has appropriately named this “Store Wars Part 3″ and you can read all about in the article by Jon Cronshaw in this Week’s Hebden Bridge Times, which, unsurprisingly, seem to have sold out in Hebden Bridge !!
As you can see our recent delivery of James Galt has improved our stock levels and will hopefully sell as well as the last delivery. Galt Toys are ideal for taking on Holiday and entertaining the youngsters whilst on the road. The Galt toys gang have written a post on Holiday Travel Tips on their blog: http://www.galttoys.com/blog/2015/07/07/travel-tips/
