Community Trust - AGM Report
The AGM of the Burley-in-Wharfedale Community Trust was held on Tuesday 13 January - the Chairman's Statement, reviewing the past year's achievements and future plans can be viewed HERE.
We've now started a collection of amazing aerial photos very kindly provided by David Bond, a resident of the village.
The photos were taken using a small unmanned remote-controlled multi-rotor helicopter, fitted with a camera.
Hopefully we will be adding to this initial collection in the near future - meanwhile, take a look at the first collection HERE.
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.
