Library Plans: Save Our Library Site

Outline plans for the current library site were displayed in the Salem Church Hall on Saturday 8th April.
Over 250 people viewed the display during the day and most were enthusiastic about the proposed changes to the building and the concept of keeping BOTH the library site which would include the library and community centre, and the Queens Hall as community facilities. With future expansion of the village BOTH are considered necessary.
For those who were unable to attend the display details of the proposed plans for the library site are HERE.

New Cricket Pitch for Junior Cricket at Scalebor Park

A new all-weather cricket pitch has been installed by specialist contractors at Scalebor Park. This is to be used exclusively for junior cricketers from Burley Cricket Club (under 9 and 11).
This project will enable the cricket club to provide additional facilities for junior cricket including changing rooms etc. It has been jointly funded by Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust and Burley Cricket Club with some help from Burley Parish Council.
If you require further information on junior cricket including a new provision for 5 to 8 year olds (boys and girls) please contact Dave Cooper (who is director of cricket) on cooper.david6@sky.com

2017 Scarecrow Theme
