GRANGE PARK SURGERY PATIENTS: JOIN US
We are all patients at one time or another and in the New Health Service evolving around us there is a way of sharing experiences, improving our health and discussing the Health Service with the staff of our Surgery.
The week beginning 1st June this year is PATIENT PARTICIPATION AWARENESS WEEK
In Burley we already have an existing group of Patients who have been meeting and organizing Patient Participation. We have good relations with the Surgery and its staff and we cooperate in promoting aspects of health and healthy living. We are currently in negotiation about a community gymnasium and we have held meetings about social care and carers, about the facilities at the Otley Hospital and how changes in the NHS will affect us. We will be very happy to see you at our meetings which will be announced through prominently placed posters, the press, the village website, notices given out at meetings of Village groups and organisations. You can also ring or email our chairman Gill Bowskill : Tel: 01943 863323 Email: email@example.com
ADVANCE NOTICE: COME TO OUR HEALTHY LIVING EVENT, SUNDAY 18TH AUGUST, AT GRANGE PARK SURGERY – PART OF BURLEY FESTIVAL WEEK.
Annual Duck Race
The Annual Village Duck Race, organised by the Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust, will take place on Sunday 16th June (Fathers Day) at 3pm on the River Wharfe. The Race start is on the field alongside the Bypass, just outside the village on the road to Otley.
The easiest way to access the race is to walk down the side of St Marys Church and the Millpond, along Cornmill Lane and down to the bypass. Just follow the crowds! The Race is followed by Teas on the Green, provided by Burley Guides, Rangers and Brownies.
The Race raises funds for both the Community Trust and Burley Scouts and Guides. Please support this important fund raising activity by purchasing a duck for the race - tickets are on sale on Saturday mornings at the bottom of Station Road outside Burley Barbers.
The Co-op submits plans for new store
The Co-operative Food has submitted plans to Bradford Council to open a new convenience store in Burley-in-Wharfedale.
The store is planned to be around 2,000sqft, would be located in the former site of the Otley Carpet Mills outlet, on Main Street, and would replace the existing Co-operative Food on Station Road.
Subject to planning permission being granted, and completing necessary building work to fit out the building, the store is planned to open towards the end of the year.
