Educational trust offers help to Burley children and young people
In 1995 the former Burley Township School on Main Street was sold and a charitable trust established with the money raised from the sale. The charity operates as
Burley Educational Trust (registered charity number 1045007) and exists “for the advancement of education in young people aged 18 and under and resident in the area… by provision of any financial assistance not normally provided by the local education authority, government or school”.

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.
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.
