The Pudsey branch of Manning Stainton was among the main sponsors of this year’s Farsley Festival.
Hainsworth Park was the location for the annual extravaganza which attracted huge crowds from the local community and beyond for an afternoon of fun and entertainment.
The free event was organised by members of the community, for the community and visitors were treated to a range of stalls, games and tasty refreshments. There was also live music performances by local groups and the chance to try a number of free activities including the wonky Olympics!
Meanwhile, visitors saw first-hand this year’s community project; a flag installation entitled Play Flags, made by hundreds of Farsley residents, school children and groups.
Fiona Sylvester-Killen, Chair of the organising committee, says: ‘The Festival is entirely self-funding and is about showcasing all that is good about our wonderful and diverse village.
‘We have plenty of people to thank for their support, including Manning Stainton, whose colourful boards did a great job in helping to promote the event and their financial donation was also very much appreciated.’
Manning Stainton supported the Farsley Festival through its Community Support Programme which helps groups and worthwhile organisations within the communities in which it operates.
John Putsman, Manager of the Manning Stainton branch on Lidget Hill in Pudsey, says: ‘The Festival is a wonderful occasion and is something that we were very keen to support and in doing so acknowledge all the hard work which has gone in to making it such a success..
‘Farsley is an incredibly popular place to live thanks to its wide choice of schools and diverse range of independent retailers, cosmopolitan bars, traditional pubs and restaurants. It also has a wonderful sense of community as demonstrated perfectly by this event.’
The Pudsey branch of Manning Stainton is open seven days a week and the team is ready to take customer calls from 8am-8pm every day. It is one of 19 Residential Sales and Lettings branches across West and North Yorkshire helping people move.
