I am organising, with the support of the Dewsbury to Ossett Community Steering Group members and the Kirklees Group of Sustrans Voluntary Rangers, a spring-clean of the Phase 1 built section of the Dewsbury to Ossett Greenway.
This will take place on Wed. 30 May starting at 4pm.
If you are willing and able to help please meet at the gate on Sands Lane - dressed appropriately with long trousers (in case of nettles), sturdy footwear and a waterproof jacket.
The work will be mainly litter picking, but there may also be some vegetation pruning.
If you have your own gardening/ work-wear gloves then you could bring them; otherwise gloves and litterpicking tools will be provided.
If you arrive after 4pm then please wander along the route to find the helpers who are likely to be working in a few different locations, e.g. around the ramp leading up to the former rail embankment; Sands Lane; the route to Savile Town over the river.
If you have any queries please phone me, or speak to one of my colleagues on Tel: 01484 225635 / 225360.
I look forward to seeing you on site. There will be the opportunity to buy refreshments at “The Leggers”, Savile Town Wharf after your hard work!
