Following on from the success of our first community litter pick, we have organised a second litter pick. We’d be extremely grateful for any volunteers to help keep Langley Moor tidy!
Volunteers are asked to meet at 9.30am at Boyne Place, Langley Moor on Saturday 20 February 2016.
If children are present, we ask that they are accompanied by an adult at all times.
Equipment will be supplied.
Wonderful news to start the New Year. The Big Play application which was made to Sita Trust for £30,000 has been successful.
This money will form part of the funding to progress the Holliday Park project! Exciting times for the project and Langley Moor.

Our annual Christmas tree lights switch on event on Sunday, 29 November 2015, was a great success. Thank you to the 300+ members of the local community who turned out to see our splendid tree illuminated once more.
Sherburn Hill Salvation Army Band played festive tunes from 3.45pm, and choirs from St Patricks and Langley Moor Primary Schools sand carols from 4.30pm, ahead of the lights being switched-on at 5pm.
Here are some images from the event:

Join us on Wednesday 15 July at 10.00am where the Chair of the Friends of Langley Moor residents group will be cutting the ribbon alongside a child from the local nursery school! Please come and help us celebrate this special event, and for those of you unable to make it, we’ll hopefully post pictures of the occasion.
Regular readers of the website, and our Facebook page, may remember that the group successfully had installed three, three-tier planters in spots around the village.
Here is a shot of one of the planters which is located opposite from Lloyds Bank… Looking good!
