Announcing the 2014 Parkinson’s Park Children’s Gala

Presentation1Well the grass has been cut, the park is prepared and so we are very pleased to announce that the 2014 Parkinson’s Park Children’s Gala will be held next week, 7th September, between 2pm and 4.30pm,  in the Park.  Funding has come from Leeds City Council, Outer North West Committee.

Invitations have started going out to all surrounding houses,  but all who want to come and enjoy this annual event are welcome – we will just keep our fingers crossed for a day as lovely and sunny as today.

As last year,  we will be having Punch and Judy,  Guiseley Brass Band,  Fairground Stalls,  races and games, plus a raffle and tombola for fund raising for the Friends:  refreshment stalls will have goodies.

Gala goers are encouraged to come dressed up as your favourite book character,  and there will be prizes given for the ‘best dressed’.

So,  come and enjoy this Guiseley event, which was first started by Crompton Parkinsons for the children of their employees back in the early 1950s.   We are always especially glad to welcome back any of the Crompton staff and their families.

Most people will probably walk,  but car parking is available in the car park on Netherfield Road.  For people with a disability,  level access is available via the Oxford Road entrance;  Kelcliffe Lane still has a number of large pot holes.

If you have any queries, please email parkinsonspark@gmail.com, or call Chris Parapia on  01943 877282.  Please also call Chris if you would like to help on the day.
