This Year's Christmas Lights

seatsDespite the current difficult times we are all living with, Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust are determined that this year's village Christmas lights should not be any different than any other year and as many lights as possible should be put up around the village to brighten our Christmas. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 the opportunities to fundraise for the lights is somewhat limited this year and as you may know we do not get any funding from Bradford Council. The lights are paid for in the main by public donation.
So during the weeks leading up to Christmas the Trust will be using a contactless payment method for people to donate on Saturday mornings outside Burley Taps and Wharfedale Deli and it will also be available in the Wharfedale Deli during their opening times. We are also looking to set up a ‘Just Giving’ type of page for people to make donations and will be publishing more details later. In the meantime you can donate now by bank transfer so that we can continue to provide lights around our village. The Trust’s bank account details are:
Yorkshire Bank, Sort Code 05-05-30, account number 35007477, and account name Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust. Please reference your payment as Burley Lights. If you want to gift aid your donation please email bwctmembership@gmail.com and we will email a form for you to complete.

Wharfedale Deli and The Burley Tap Bar - Free School Meals

deliVarious people around the village have been moved by the huge publicity surrounding the Free School Meals issue during school holidays. They have seen communities around the country offering to make school meals for children who needed it and wanted to know what our community was doing to help.
Jan from the Wharfedale Deli and Sarah from Burley Taps have agreed to work together in buying food and making FREE packed sandwich lunches during this half-term holiday so that no child in our village goes hungry. If you would like to order a completely free packed lunch, please get in touch with Sarah Herbert or Jan Edwards and they will arrange with you a discreet collection between 11am-12noon. No questions asked.
If you don’t want to get in touch in advance, just turn up at The Tap between those times.
tapBurley in Wharfedale Community Trust has agreed to act as an intermediary in order for people to donate money to this cause, which will then be passed on to Jan and Sarah.
