Woodland Management

Hi Everyone,

What a wonderful turn out we had today to tidy up Greenmount Sidings. The group was so large that the task was finished before 11.30am and so we could spend time enjoying a coffee before the heavens deluged upon us.

My thanks go to the 6 new people who joined us and it means we have had a lot of interest shown in the Woodland Management group as a result of the Exhibition held in the Old School last weekend.

Thank you all once again, it makes Paul Robinson and my task so much easier when there are many hands on site.

Just as a reminder we have two sessions planned in the diary, which are:

  • Friday 29th July meeting at 10am to work in Kingsbury Wood. We meet on the road leading into the housing estate at the end of Garside Hey Road (a map will be available nearer the time)
  • Friday 9th September at 10am on Kirklees Street near Tottington Station (a map will be available nearer the time).

I hope you can come and join us.

All the best,

Alistair Waddell

Dear All,

Just a reminder about the ‘Be Active in Bury North’ exhibition taking place at Greenmount Old School this weekend, 25th/26th June, 2022.

Please see attached a leaflet giving the full details about the exhibition and the guided walks which have been arranged.

Also attached are two documents, one showing a list of all the groups exhibiting, and one giving information about the activity groups and what is on offer.

Hopefully, you will find something of interest to you. Come along and take the opportunity to have a chat to someone and find out more.

Please spread the word and we can all encourage more people to get involved after a long period away from regular activities.

There is a display in Greenmount Church on the History of Greenmount, as well as performances from a couple of the groups.

D-CaFF celebrate!!

Dear All,

Just to remind you that D-CaFF were awarded the Queen’s Award back in March 2020. Due to the Pandemic, they were unable to celebrate this prestigious award. However, Joani Beale and Laura Roberts did get to visit Buckingham Palace a couple of weeks ago to receive their award and would like to share this with you.

Regards,

Julie Southworth

No Woodland Management this week

Hi,

Paul Robinson is on leave this Friday so there is no Woodland Management on Friday 27th May.

With the Jubilee Party next week (3rd June at the Old School and Village Green) and the D-CaFF Celebration the following Friday 10th June, it may be that the next Woodland Management is at the end of June.

Watch out for further emails.

All the best,

Alistair
