ZANY TV cookery duo The Hairy Bikers might soon be riding into Mirfield.

The town is one of a number of locations which could feature in a new series about community caring.

Producers of the BBC2 series were in Mirfield this week to check out the area.

In the series, the Bikers – Simon King and Dave Myers, pictured, -– will travel the country to look at how elderly people get the food they need and how they are looked after by their local community.

Mirfield businessman Martin Ibberson was quick to offer his help with the project. He told producers that he would make office space available which could be used as a base.

Mirfield Show stalwart Richard Hartley has also been spreading the news. “Nothing is definite, but I’m sure the show will get a positive response if it does come here,” he said.

When locations have been decided, the series is set to be broadcast around April.
