Covering the villages of Wilsden and Harecroft


You are invited to hear Inspector Julie Deacon speak about crime and the prevention of crime in Wilsden at the Parish Council meeting taking place on Monday 5th December 2016 commencing at 7 p.m.

All are welcome to make Wilsden a safer place.


The annual Wilsden Christmas Lights Switch On is taking place this year on Sunday 27th November 2016 at 6.00 p.m. in Wilsden Park beginning with carol singing followed by the countdown to the switch on.  Please bring a torch for better illumination of the words on the carol sheets.

After the lights are switched on, complimentary mince pies, mulled wine and soft drinks will be provided in the Village Hall.

This is a great event so please come along and join in this magical start to Advent.

The Parish Council Green Spaces Group which comprises representatives of the Parish Council, Wilsden Friends of the Park and Wilsden Gardening Association has embarked on the first phase of planting Spring bulbs (daffodils and crocus) which took place on Saturday 22nd October 2016 at sites around the village.

The bulbs have been purchased by the Parish Council with the support of Stephen Smith's Garden Centre, Wilsden.

The sites have been chosen, hopefully, to give the maximum impact and  include the areas around The Welcome To Wilsden stones at Windy Grove and Thornhill Terrace, the Main Street opposite Crooke Lane, the Village Green and around the back of the Village Hall.  It is planned that this is an important step in enhancing green spaces in the village as the Parish Council progressively begins to take over some of the services currently provided by BMDC.

We hope that this first phase will be a success and that in Spring we will see the colourful results of their labours.
