logo-LBALeeds Bradford Airport is proposing to introduce new flight routes next year as part of the national Airspace Change Programme. The most significant of these for Burley in Wharfedale is the western departure route between Burley and Menston.
Further to the drop-in sessions held last year, two presentations of the final proposals, with particular emphasis on the effect on Burley, will be given by the airport's Head of Air Traffic Services Mr Jim Wylie. Each will be followed by a question and answer session.
They will be held on Tuesday 9th October in Salem Church Hall, Burley in Wharfedale, at 5.30 pm and 7.30 pm.
Salem Church Hall is reached via a snicket between the Queens Head pub and the World of Beds, opposite the Queen's Hall on Main Street. It can also be reached from Grange Park near the playground. Some parking is available on Main Street and behind the Queens Hall, as well as on Grange Road.

logoBurley in Wharfedale Community Trust has been responsible for many years for the hanging baskets and tubs in the village including the beds by the Fountain of Life and the flower tubs around the War Memorial. These have been done with help from partner organizations, Burley Gardeners, Burley Parish Council and Ghyll Royd School. This year despite the dry weather they look absolutely splendid. We also look after the Jubilee and Pudding Tree Gardens as well as the Pavilion, grounds and pitches at Scalebor Park.
This year as well as organizing the Christmas Lights we are also acting as the lead organization for the Christmas Market including the stalls and rides. The date for this is Saturday 1st December starting at 2 pm with the lights switch on at 4.30 pm. Again we are grateful to our partners in this venture: Burley Parish Council, BaDCoT, and the Red Lion.
As a registered charity we also support other village organizations including the Scouts and Guides, Bowling Club, Junior Cricket and Football and Walkers are Welcome. Please support our charity by becoming a member here.
