Friends of Aireville Park kicked off their fundraising campaign for the new play area, by running the Skipton Town Hall Cafe on bank holiday Monday. The cafe was well attended by local people and tourists, with customers enjoying pies and hot breakfast rolls supplied by Keelham Farm Shop. 

The total raised from this event was £700, which brings the amount raised so far to £13,300 of the £100,000 target required.

Sharon Jefferies of FOAP said: “We'd like to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers that worked in the cafe, baked cakes and came to support us on the day. This was a really positive start to our fundraising campaign for the new play area.”
