We would like to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful pupils, their families, and staff at Water Street Primary School who raised a fantastic £176 towards the new children’s play area when they all swapped school uniform for something green on Friday 26th May 2017.
It’s really very exciting to see that our fundraising campaign is becoming a whole community effort. And if you’ve got any ideas of how you can help us meet our £100,000 target please do get in touch!
We are the Friends of Aireville Park (FoAP) and we are an established, Skipton based, community organisation. We have 6 core volunteer committee members and over 400 followers on social media. We are a group of parents, dog walkers, runners, cyclists and locals who love the park. The committee formed in April 2013 to work as a team to improve the park with a core purpose of encouraging wider use of the park and a sense of community ownership through our fundraising for park improvements, conservation of unique and natural features and holding a variety of community events in the park. We are the latest winners of the 2016 Craven Community ChampionAward for a Greener Craven. We work closely with the park owners, Craven District Council (CDC), to represent the voice of the community and to push for the improvements that will transform Aireville Park in to the community hub that Skipton needs and deserves.
