Bingley Walkers are Welcome is now three years old and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors and supporters for your continued support over the past years. We will be holding our third Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 17th April 2018 at Cardigan House, Ferncliffe Road, Bingley. BD16 2TA. The meeting will start at 7.30 prompt and we will provide tea and coffee on arrival.
We don’t usually share events which are not walk related but on this occasion we believe there is enough ground for us to make an exception:
it’s a community event involving three local organisations
it’s a family fun day
it’s happening locally using local facilities (Bingley Pool and Myrtle Park)
So let’s make this a success and hopefully it will be a recurring annual event for many years to come!

This time, the festival is organised solely by the Bingley local community and we are hopeful to make it an annual feature!

The full restoration including the glasshouse, fountains, aviary and paths is now nearing completion and a Grand Re-opening ceremony is planned on 10th December 2017.
