Volunteers sought for Ashfield Primary School revamp
5:11pm Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
Volunteers are being sought to help an Otley school revamp its wildlife area.
Ashfield Primary has received a £9,750 Awards for All grant from the Big Lottery Fund to pay for everything from pond clearance to tree planting and creating an outdoor classroom.
The school is being assisted by members of environmental charity Groundwork, Otley in Bloom and local Scouts, but hopes other volunteers will also go along when it starts the work with a Community Day from 10am to 2.30pm on November 10.
Anyone wishing to get involved, who must be aged over 16 or be accompanied by an adult, should contact Jo Featherstone on 07826 189180 or (01943) 850644. The scheme will also involve bulb and shrub planting, path clearing and building willow structures and a bird feeding station.
