Farsley Community Initiative to hold AGM

Farsley Community Initiative (FCI) – the umbrella organisation for Farsley Festival, Farsley Community Orchard, Farsley Farmers Market and Friends of Hainsworth Park – is holding its annual general meeting on Tuesday 15 October, writes Keely Bannister.

At the meeting, which takes place from 7.30pm until 9.30pm at Farsley Celtic’s the Citadel stadium, an update will be given on what each of the different groups have been doing and what they will be doing in the future.

There will also be a report given by the current treasurer and elections held for the FCI posts of Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary. 

Representatives from Farsley Festival, Farsley Community Orchard, Farsley Farmers Market and Friends of Hainsworth Park will be on hand to chat to people and answer questions – each group would welcome potential volunteers to come and find out more about how they can get involved.

Future events

Friends of Hainsworth Park are holding their next meeting on Wednesday 16th October from 7.30pm until 8.30pm at St John’s Church. Agenda items include an update on progress since the last public meeting, including the council’s resident consultation. You can view the minutes from their last meeting here.

Farsley Festival are holding a fundraising quiz night on Sunday 20th October from 7pm until 10pm at Grumpy’s Bar & Wood Fired Pizza. Tickets are £12 and include half a pizza, dough balls, entry to the quiz and a donation towards next year’s festival. Tickets can be bought via eventbrite or in person from Grumpy’s or Farsley Library. People are requested to purchase a ticket by Wednesday 16th October so the organisers have an idea of numbers.

FCI will once again be collecting Christmas trees in January. More details will be made available in due course. Volunteers will be required.
