Bradfordians will have chance to work off that New Year excess on a hedge laying course.

The traditional skill will be taught by expert hedger Edward Kyrke on a weekend course organised by the Forest of Bradford.

Taking place in a beautiful countryside setting near Cullingworth, all tools and safety equipment are provided. The course is aimed at beginners, so no previous experience is required.
