Welcome to the Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust (BWCT) website
Summer Prize Draw
BWCT is a registered charity (1098871) and is a not for profit organization formed in 2003 to help provide facilities and services and to maintain assets for the benefit of all Burley residents and visitors. For more details of our activities please click on the ‘About Us’ button at the top of the website page.
The Trust is managed by a group of volunteer Trustees elected at the AGM in January. Currently there are 13 Trustees, all from the village.
Funding for the Trust is provided by membership fees, private and corporate donations and from partnerships including Burley Parish Council, Burley and District Chamber of Trade, (BADCOT) , Burley Gardeners and the Co-op. We have also undertaken jointly funded work with other village organizations such as Burley Scouts and Guides, Burley Trojans Junior Football Club, Burley Cricket Club (junior section), Burley Playground project, Burley Bowls Club, and Walkers are Welcome.
Membership is a very important element of our income (currently 840) and we would urge all Burley residents to join the Trust either as an Individual for an annual fee of £12, as a Family member for £18, or as a Life member for the one-off fee of £150. This can be done online by clicking on the join/renew button below or by cheque/cash put into our secure silver postbox in the Burley library entrance hall.
We now have an automated membership system (mainly online) which is working well. For those members with an e mail address the Trust now sends out a regular newsletter with details of our recent and upcoming events and activities.
