Farsley Coronation street party organisers say thanks

The organisers of Farsley’s Coronation street party have thanked attendees for their support.

The party, on Bank Holiday Monday, saw Farsley Town Street closed to traffic, with the shops, bars, restaurants, church opening up for a Coronation celebration. Events also took place in Weavers Yard and Sunny Bank Mills.

Organisers Farsley Business Forum paid tribute to the ‘excellent’ turnout.

“Despite the awful weather forecast for the day the rain stopped in time and held off until we had to open the road up at 5pm… how lucky was that! But we had faith it would be ok,” the forum said in a statement.

“There was an excellent turnout from everyone and the businesses that opened reported very good trade on the day. Thank you to the businesses that supported the day. Thanks also the volunteer stewards for their work and to the street closure team and security for their professional approach.

“The next two events coming up will hopefully be the annual Aston Martin Day in September and the Farsley Christmas Lights Switch on Wednesday 29th November.”

The sentiments were echoed by Councillor Andrew Carter (Cons, Calverley & Farsley), who said: “First of all, a big thank you to all the businesses who opened up yesterday afternoon following the road closure.

“Despite the weather and the odd ‘naysayer’ the event was a great success, all the businesses in the hospitality sector that opened did extremely well, the stalls were excellent, and a big thanks to our handful of volunteer stewards and also our professional stewards from Gough and Kelly.

“No trouble, no rowdiness, everybody having a great time despite the weather. And, of course, another excellent day in Farsley Town Street, the ‘jewel in our Farsley crown’.”
