Proposed move for Burley Post Office
The Post Office is proposing plans to move from its current location on Station Road to the premises of the AM PM Mini Market, 36 Station Road (next to the old Coop), and would like your views on the proposal.
They state that the majority of Post Office services will be maintained, and a major benefit would be considerably longer opening hours ( Mon-Fri 7:30am to 9pm, Sat & Sun 8:30am to 8pm).
A leaflet explaining the changes (and the consultation) is available within the branch, and can be viewed HERE.
Burley House Friends of the Field Working Group
This meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month throughout the year between 10am and 12noon (with minor exceptions and weather permitting) and one evening a week during the summer months (see village diary). The Group carries seasonal tasks such as grass raking, orchard maintenance, planting, removal of Hmalayan balsam from the beck etc. All welcome.
Information on Burley House Field and the Friends can be found on Burley Parish Council website and on the notice boards on the field. Posters giving the tasks for each month are listed on posters at the main entrances to the field.
