Picnic table at Burley's Grange Park is welcomed by parents

Wharfedale ward councillors used their Area Action Plan funding to provide a picnic table at the children’s play area in Burley’s Grange Park.
And it has proved so popular over the summer holidays they have proposed funding a second one in the park.
Councillor Jackie Whiteley (Cons, Wharfedale) said: “As I often walk through the park it was great to see how well used it was. During the summer holidays I often saw families using it while little ones played on the swings or shared a picnic. One evening I saw a group of young people socialising with their friends and using iPads.
“It was clear to me that this was money well spent and I have recommended to my colleagues that we buy another one to be placed further into the park. “The mothers I spoke with said the picnic table was a very useful and welcome addition to the park facilities.”
