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 local junior sports clubs including Burley Trojans Juniors and Burley Cricket Club.
Membership is a very important element of our income (currently 802) and we would urge all Burley residents to join the Trust either as an Individual, Family or Life member. 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 have recently automated our system for membership from the annual renewal date of June 1st. As with most new systems we have had a few teething problems including sending out renewal notices to current life members (apologies for this). Renewals were sent out to all existing members with Email addresses. Unfortunately some (42) of these were incorrect or have changed. If you were a member last year and have not received a renewal notice can you please go to the renewal page and sign in using your correct Email address.
