Otley Carnival Committee Announce New Beneficiaries for 2017 Carnival
In 2016 we were able donate a total of £3,000 to worthy causes.
We are delighted tour announce the following as our 2016 beneficiaries, Otley Parish Church Bell Restoration Appeal, Otley Skate Park Users Group and Otley Science Festival.
Otley Parish Church Bell Restoration Appeal – Otley Parish Church bells have been ringing over Otley ring at least 1748. The bells were replaced in 1782 and then in 1922 since when no significant work has occurred. There is now need to carry out refurbishment work on the bells
Otley Skate Park Users Group was established in 2015 by local skateboarders and scooter riders. The user group aims to bridge the gap between the skate park users and the local council by improving communication between the two parties and providing a vital platform on which issues can be raised constructively.
Otley Science Festival aims to stimulate interest and participation in all kinds of science-related knowledge. It works with all ages from the under 5s to the retired. It attracts people from a wide area into Otley, by presenting a range of activities, speakers and participatory events not available elsewhere in the locality.
Our fundraising starts now so please come and support us at the Victorian Fayre on Sunday December 4th.
