One of the decorated areas of the Park this year on The Christmas Elf Trail will be the small gate on to Kelcliffe Lane. There you will find wooden snowflakes and stars twinkling in the breeze.

If you would like one dedicated to a loved one (person or pet) who is deceased please contact Joanna Cornfield on by 5th December.

If you would like to give a donation to help this and other events in the park take place you can do so at Local Giving on our Friends of Parkinson’s Park page.


The Good Grief Trust is a the UK’s leading umbrella charity, bringing all UK bereavement services, support organisations and helplines together. In Aireborough we have Good Grief Guiseley who have support events in Guiseley Town Hall, to help those who have been bereaved. Contact During the week of 2 – 8 December, the Good Grief Trust will be promoting their services

  • To help the bereaved feel acknowledged and understood
  • To help those grieving and the professionals working with them, to find the support they need NOW
  • To help those supporting their grieving friends and family to know what to say and do
  • To help the smaller support organisations raise their profile and reach those in need in the community

This year the Trust is encouraging buildings to light up in yellow on Tuesday 8 December, the final day of the National Grief Awareness Week campaign. The Central Dome at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London will light up at 6pm, with the aim for every bereaved person across all communities to know they are remembered.To add to this Guiseley Town Hall will be lit, and the Friends of Parkinson’s Park will be putting up some lights near the farm gate on 8th December between 6 and 8pm, near where the ‘memory box’ is buried and where the natter bench will go next year. #ShareYourStory
