Stock worth more than £500 was stolen from Vapour Worx on Boroughbridge High Street, and police were alerted to the incident when alarmed members of the public spotted a smashed shop window. Since October last year eight burglaries in Boroughbridge have been reported to the police, and the managers of Vapour Worx fear that there will only be more incidents in town if traders do not show a united front and communicate regularly to identify threats to businesses.
The "avenue of poppies" will form a visual centrepiece for Remembrance this year, as Ripon joins communities across the country to mark the Centenary of the end of the First World War, and remember those who served and lost their lives in other conflicts. Businesses along the route are being invited to decorate their shop windows with poppies to show their support, and already a band of knitters is forming to make the enormous display happen.
Ripon’s business community is taking charge to organise new festive events for the city. Around 50 residents and traders attended a meeting at So Bar organised by the Ripon Chamber of Trade and Commerce, where calls were made for a bigger and better Christmas market on the Square. The Chamber’s secretary, Stephen Craggs, told the ‘Gazette that the energy and enthusiasm shown by businesses will be a critical part of creating a more vibrant event.
@nucleuspunch Hi Greg, great photo! We're trying to add as many photos as we can to our Remembrance coverage, would you be happy for the Harrogate Advertiser to use yours? If so, who should we photo credit? Many thanks!

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
