On Monday 26th November we joined forces with The River Stewardship Company, Open Source Arts, members of Leeds City Council, a volunteer group from ENGIE - a leading energy, services & regeneration group with offices in Leeds & local volunteers, at Redcoates Lane in Kirkstall, LS4.
Commissioned by the Environment Agency, Groundwork North, East & West Yorkshire recently identified & cleaned up a pollution problem in Bradford Beck, mopping up a long standing environmental issue that will have a direct impact on improving the local area where the waters now run clear.
To launch the 'Better Place' project we are inviting children from the Better Start Bradford area to help design a logo that will give the work being undertaken in Bowling and Barkend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton an identity; as Groundwork deliver a programme to develop safer, healthier places for famillies and children under four to play and walk and increase their access to outdoor space
The community charity behind the Growing St Andrews project are calling out for budding local artists to create a logo, which will help bring the local community together.
Groundwork in Hull, has been awarded £276,870 over the next three years which will support the charities vision of ‘changing places, changing lives’ through a project known as ‘Growing St Andrews’.
Groundwork’s, Men in Sheds in Morley are opening up their shed on 16th May 2017 to help raise awareness of keeping active, as part of Dementia Awareness Week.
The Communities team at Groundwork are working really hard to inform the local area about the effects of litter and flooding as part of the River C’Aire programme. As well as tackling the after effects of flooding in the local river clean ups, the team are visiting schools to help educate the children on habitats and just how damaging this can be to the local wildlife.
The Community Team have been out showing their care for the Aire with another environmental activity day; this time at Thwaites Water Mill in Leeds.
Yorkshire community charity, Groundwork Leeds, has been busy looking at ways to tackle the flooding issues along the River Aire caused by the December flooding in 2015.
