The Village Diary

Now that things seem to be settling down a bit we are again encouraging entries of future meetings to be displayed in the village diary. We’ll update current listings when more details are made available.

Burley Business Directory

Burley now has its very own Business Directory,  which will eventually cover every business within Burley parish, along with ones that cover businesses that aren’t available in the village but exist locally. 
So, business people, you now have your very own Business Directory – please feel free to start making your business details available to villagers and visitors alike. Take a few minutes to read through the listed pages to get an idea of how the system works and what you need to do to register your business and then complete the relevant form to provide the details. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a photo for a logo yet – you can use an alternative one until you have one, or we’ll insert a standard graphic.

Regarding any photos you might want to include (asked for in the forms) don’t bother to resize them as we’ll do that this end, as well as optimising them so that they display faster.

Make sure you have a photo or two for display, along with details of what your business, large or small, provides. We’ll also be providing working links to your media outlets (facebook, Twitter etc) and, if you have one, your website.

The local community will be the driving force behind the desire to see just what facilities exist within the village, and if not then close by, and we see the directory itself growing to hold many varied busineses by the end of the first year – no doubt the number of categories will also need to expand. We now have quite a few examples to view, so please feel free to surf the Directory at will – you won’t break anything!

Sponsored by the Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust and organised by the Burley website committee ALL entries will be free of charge, whilst giving displayed priority to those businesses within the village.


This annual event, which was cancelled last year due to the covid 19 pandemic restrictions is due to take place on Saturday 27 November, with the street and craft  markets opening at 1pm and the switch on at 4:20pm.

There will be the usual market and craft stalls, rides, Santa’s sleigh and entertainment from the Ukelele Band, Dance Studio and the Combined School Choirs.

This is the 40th anniversary of the first lights, so expect something special this year.
