Burley in Wharfedale
Due to the extension to the lifting of the final covid restrictions it has been decided to postpone the Annual Duck Race and Teas in the Park to SUNDAY 8TH AUGUST 2PM. This will be followed by ‘Teas on the Green’ on the Village Green at 3pm, provided by Burley Scouts and Guides.
Duck Tickets are priced at £1 each and will be on sale outside the Co-op on Saturday mornings, as well as through the Scouts and Guides organisation. There are cash prizes for the first 5 ducks home, with a £100 first prize. The Duck Race is a big fund raiser for both the Community Trust and the Scouts and Guides so please support this event. Tickets that have already been sold, and those yet to be sold are still valid for the event.
The best access route to the Duck Race on the day is via Corn Mill Lane down the side of the old mill pond, by the Malt Shovel. We are hoping to have police assistance on the day but please take extra special care when crossing the A65.
NB. Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust would like to remind all those attending the Duck Race that responsibility for all children and dogs rests with their parent/guardians and owners at all times – before, during and after the event, including the road crossings.
The Community Trust is very grateful to Kev Reid who has designed this Treasure Hunt walk around the village. Some of the BWCT trustees and friends have tried it out and it’s really good and fun to do! We saw new things in the village, and it took about two to three hours to complete.
You can either download it as a pdf booklet (4 colour pages) or a straight pdf document (8 colour pages); both versions include the sheet for your answers. The mission is to use your spying skills to follow the clues and identify the missing ingredient of the famous Burley Pudding. The trail starts at the Fountain of Life at the bottom of Station Road and moves around the centre of the village. Full details HERE
