Thank you to everyone who is supporting the community

Published: 22 June 2020

Love Burley is currently working with around 400 vulnerable people and buddies combined.  New requests have plateaued now and there’s one or two new requests each week, we hope that means that all those needing support are now supported. 

Love Burley and Parish Council would like to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and the way in which our amazing village has pulled together in these unprecedented times.  Truly amazing and every one of you should be proud of what you’ve done in your own homes and for others.  Love Burley continues to work through how it will evolve and grow from the experiences of this pandemic so watch this space for more information on that over the coming months. 

The Parish Council would also like to thanks member of the Burley Bridge Association and supportive residents who have been down to the river on a regular basis to clear up the great mess that is being left by members of the public. Residents will be aware of the large number of people that have been down to the stepping stones for recreation. Particularly during the May hot weather a great many enjoyed picnics and barbeques, and it’s thanks to a several community spirited residents that the daily littering has been cleared away. Sadly there are no medals – but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve one!
