Nature work underway at Shipley site

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: TEAM: Incommunities helped the Hirst Wood Regeneration Group TEAM: Incommunities helped the Hirst Wood Regeneration Group

A Shipley residents’ group is taking its first steps towards creating a nature garden with the help of social housing group Incommunities.

Staff in Incommunities’ regeneration green team joined members of Hirst Wood Regeneration Group to clear brambles and overgrown areas at a canal side plot at the bottom of Hirst Lane – and they will return soon to help thin out some of the sapling trees around the site.

Bradford Council also took away rubbish, bottles and cans collected from the site leaving it clear for residents wanting to carry out planting, create a pond, seating areas, bird hide and pathways.

Lets be positive here, from the picture in the article it shows different people from all ages coming together (like we all should) and putting some pride into their area. It looks like the area was overgrown and littered with rubbish and yes Bradford Council have now taken away the rubbish. It will take some hard work and yes it will need to be kept up to but the rewards will be worth it - well done to all involved.
