Cooperating with our friends
We are working with Ash Road Area Residents Association, Queenswood Tenants and Residents Association and Woodbridge and Queenswood in Bloom to encourage improvements in Batcliffe Wood which is part of the original Kirkstall Grange Estate. Watch this space for news of new information boards funded by Wades Charity.
The Friends work with Ash Road Area Residents Association, Queenswood Tenants and Residents Association, and Queenswood and Woodbridge in Bloom to help improve Batcliffe Wood. The wood extends south from Beckett Park as far as Kirkstall Lane and Queenswood Drive. One of the original carriage drives to Kirkstall Grange ran through the wood - you can still follow path of the sunken road. The Council has just replaced the fencing alongside Queenswood Drive and volunteers have cleaned up rubbish and planted trees. The Parks Ranger is helping us prepare a wildflower meadow.
The next volunteer task will be on Saturday 16th November when we will be thinning out tree saplings and cutting back vegetation to open up pathways and encourage more variety of trees and wildlife. Meet at 10.00 am at the bottom end of the wood near Langdale Terrace. We will be working until 3.00 pm but feel free to join or leave at any time. Hot drinks and biscuits provided!
