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).
