BETTY WARD, Mayor of Hebden Royd Council 2006 - 7), passed away peacefully surrounded by family at 12.15 on Friday 24th September 2010 at Calderdale Royal Hospital.
Betty donated her body to science and for the good of others.

A donation box for Yorkshire Air Ambulance (Betty's charity for the mayoral year) will be available at the church.
Amongst the many things Betty achieved in her time as Mayor she made National Television when Robbie Coltrane came to Mytholmroyd as a judge at the Dock Pudding Contest later shown as part of the B Road Britain series. See photos from that event. A short video clip is here.
