Burley Garage Sales - Sunday 03 July
On Sunday 3rd July, between 1pm and 4pm, there will be numerous garage sales at houses around Burley (and 1 in Menston). We have produced a map showing the locations of the garage sales. Some people are selling ice creams, others are selling photographs and vintage china whilst some stalls are selling toys, clothes and household items so why not enjoy a walk around the village, visit some of the stalls and pick up a bargain!
Maps showing the locations are available at Burley Library and online via our facebook page @burleyscoutandguidehutappeal. Copies will also be available at the Scout & Guide Hut. Many thanks to all involved!

Burley in Wharfedale Playground Project (BWPP)
Fundraising for BWPP is moving forward at a rapid rate with over £30,000 raised already towards the anticipated cost of around £100,000; a grant of £50,000 has recently been applied for. The cost includes not only a new playground for children but also adult fitness equipment in Grange Park. There have been several fundraising events over the past few months and more are planned between now and the end of October - see the Village Diary for details. In addition there have been many generous donations from individuals and organisations.
If you want to donate to this very worthwhile project please send a cheque or cash to Rachael Robinson at 5 Far Mead Court (payable to Burley in Wharfedale Conmmunity Trust).
