Moor Run - Saturday 08 November 2014
The final event of the Burley Summer Festival for 2014 (delayed due to the shooting season on the moors) is now taking bookings.
This is the fifth year of the Burley Run and the course remains the same as previous years; because of the constricted nature of some of the paths we are limiting the entry to 300. Participants need to be a minimum of 16 years old.
The run will start at Scalebor Park Pavilion at 10am and go onto Burley Moor - this is an off-road course of about 11K and has a main ascent of some 800ft. The course uses well trodden paths and tracks, but by the very nature of moor land, some sections are steep and uneven.
You can find the booking forms, along with more information, HERE.
Burley Poppy Appeal
Rachel O’Connor, the Burley-in-Wharfedale Poppy Appeal Organiser, is looking for volunteers to help with this year’s Appeal which runs from October 25th for two weeks.
Anyone who could sell poppies door to door or on the street in the village, help at the Coffee Morning in the Parish Centre on November 8th or assist/attend the Poppy Appeal Gig at the Social Club on October 24th (see Village Diary) is most welcome.
Rachel said: “Our Poppy sellers are getting older and we could do with some help from younger people. They don’t have to take on anything too demanding, just collecting in their own street would help. We used to cover every street in the village but that is not so these days. Anyone who can offer any help at all is most welcome and they can contact me on 07507125141.”
Burley Scouts and Guides bonfire will be on Saturday 08 November, near to the Scout Hut at the bottom of Peel Place.
It starts at 6pm and the bonfire will be lit at 7pm, followed by fireworks at 7:30pm.
This year's switching-on ceremony will take place on Saturday 29 November.
More details later.
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.
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.
