Welcome to Working for Walton
We are a community group based in Walton, Wakefield who are very proud to work hard together to deliver fantastic events for the residents of our village.
We formed five years ago with the initial aim to purchase a village Christmas tree. Mighty Oaks from little acorns do grow and we now have a full annual calendar of events including a vintage car show, scarecrow festival and full Christmas lights switch on event.
We’re always looking for volunteers and are a friendly bunch! If you want to help out or have any questions – just drop us an email.
What we have achieved so far
We have delivered many fantastic events which have been enjoyed by hundreds of our residents and the local community. We have also managed to fundraise through these events and have purchased two life saving AEDs which are located at Walton Village Hall and Walton Sports and Social Club.
We are also immensely proud to have been able to organise and finance a Pit Wheel Memorial located at Walton Colliery Nature Park.
Our next project and 20/20 vision is to provide some detailed maps and noticeboards throughout the village.
