Linton Bentley received a Burton Award from Kirkburton & Highburton Community Association for his many years of service to the village. The picture shows Linton receiving his award from Vanda who was presenting it on behalf of the community association.

Linton has been a fixture with his hair salon in Kirkburton since 1972 and is known by many people in the village. He has been instrumental in the Kirkburton Business Association and has devoted many hours as a volunteer in various projects which include the erection and taking down of the Christmas lights, being one of Santa’s drivers as well as helping organise Business Association events in the past. Also not forgetting his reindeer display that shines brightly every Christmas in the centre of Kirkburton.

This award is showing the appreciation from the community for all of Linton’s hard work over the many years he has been in the village and we hope for many more years to come, well done Linton.
