What a Difference a Weekend Can Make - Roll of Honour for Burwardsley

Home » News » £1264 Fund Raising Success!

We are delighted to celebrate 'Success at The Successfactory'!

The 2-day 'Nostalgic Burwardsley' weekend event, held at the Successfactory, raised a staggering £1264 towards the installation of a Burwardsley 'Roll of Honour'.

You turned out in your hordes and for that we thank you.

It was wonderful to see the local community (young and old) engaged with each other and full of curiosity for yet more information regarding this hamlet which lies on the Sandstone Ridge and in recognition of the men of Burwardsley who had died in conflict.

So enthusiastic were you that you repeatedly asked Terri Hull and Yvonne Keeping to host yet another Exhibition — they assure us that they will rise to the challenge (fear not)!

Whilst it is impossible to thank everyone individually, we would like to extend particular thanks to Graham Wilson who opened his inspirational venue for our sole use during the entire weekend and who has enthusiastically supported us in our endeavours. May we also thank his Site Manager (Rob Jones) and son (Matthew) who helped into the night on Friday whilst we set up the exhibits.

We are now well on the way to the vision becoming reality — what a difference a weekend can make!!

The raffle was drawn at the end of the event and I will be contacting you all separately — thank you again for your support.
