Keighley butcher Roy Dykes has been elected president of the Confederation of Yorkshire Butchers Councils.

His first act was to issue a clarion call to butchers across the region to support the annual Great Yorkshire pork pie, sausage and products competition which will be staged at the Cedar Court hotel, Bradford, in November.
