Recent Awards to Local Groups

Cricket Netting Partnership 2019

The Parish Council is increasingly working in partnership to deliver improvements across the village, and a request has been received to help purchase netting for Burley Cricket Club. The Cricket Club is seeking to replace the protective tunnel netting, and the proposal is to divide the costs between the Cricket Club, Burley Community Trust, and the Parish Council.

The Parish Council will contribute £500 towards the costs and have agreed to purchase the netting for the Cricket Club.


Awards 2018

Bowls Club Support

Parish Council are pleased to announce that we’ve agreed a five year grant agreement with the Bowls Club to preserve this important and valued facility within Grange Park.

The Council also awarded a £500 towards a bowling machine in May 2018. 

Walkers are Welcome

Burley Walkers are Welcome propose creating an off-road footpath link adjacent to Moor Road, between the existing roadside path in Burley Woodhead and the junction with Stead Lane. Walkers and runners currently have to share the narrow and busy road between these two points. The alternative route using rights of way on Burley Moor is not a particularly accessible path and includes a steep crossing over Coldstone Beck. The total cost of the scheme is around £5,000 of which £1,000 has already been pledged. The Parish Council is pleased to award a grant for £500 to support the project.

Scouts and Guides

The Parish Council were delighted to award a £500 contribution towards the new village Scout and Guide HQ, a building for the future of the growing number of young people in the village.
