Santa's Float - Update
Many thanks to the residents of Burley in Wharfedale for braving the wind and rain to come out to see Santa when he made an early tour of the village before Christmas. He helped the Scout and Guide Groups to raise £1,300 towards their new headquarters.
On behalf of Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust can I thank all those who helped to make the Christmas Lights Switch On in Burley such a great success on Saturday.
Particular thanks are to Burley Parish Council for their help in funding the event; the choirs that took part and all their leaders; BADCOT for organizing the Christmas Market and Fair; Scouts and Guides for the sleigh; Father Christmas for his personal appearance; all the churches for their help and activities; all the various caterers, marshalls and bucket shakers; Jake Wright for the traction engine rides, and lastly all the people who have helped in putting up the lights over the past few weeks. Thank you to you all.
Duncan Ault: Chair, Burley Community Trust.
We've started to compile a series of slideshows from the photos already received and will continue to build on them as we obtain more photos from you.
If you want to have your photos displayed then there are several ways that you can get them to us - they're shown on the menu of the new Burley Photo Gallery. Here's the page.
The same page has a drop-down menu showing the slideshows already created.
Pudding Tree Garden
The Pudding Tree Garden, which is a small triangular garden between the Malt and the Parish church, has now been refurbished by
Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust. We have been helped financially by the owners of the garden, the Percy Dalton Trust and the developers of the Malt. Burley Gardeners’ Association have helped the development of the garden area and the seats have been refurbished by Bruce Speed. Several Trustees have given their time as well to ensure that the garden provides a tranquil corner to spend a quiet moment of reflection. Disabled access has been improved with another entrance being provided and a tarmac path being constructed.
Please feel free to use the garden at your leisure.
BURLEY AND THE GREAT WAR 1914 - 1918
Using our Burley archive material including press reports and photos from 1914-18, and pages from a scrap book kept by a lady in Burley during that time, the exhibition gives some indication of how Burley reacted to the war.
The Scrapbook is also available to be seen in the library when the archives are open, Tuesday and Friday afternoons, 2.30 to 4.30 p.m.
