RODLEY Nature Reserve was the venue for the autumn seed trail organised by Aireborough Rotary Club.

Participants collected the original six seeds (pine cone, conker, beech nut, acorn, sycamore ‘helicopter’ and an ash key), some even added new finds to their collection. Their educational and fun walk also enabled them to take in the hides along the way.

A spokesperson for Aireborough Rotary said: "On completing the trail many first time visiting families with small children enjoyed the Human Fruit Machine, Sand Game and Hook a Duck, as well as going home with a skipping rope produced to order and riding on the miniature railway. Enthusiastic feedback from those leaving confirmed the event’s success.

"Rodley staff were delighted that families utilised the hides picking out the fact that they saw herons and egrets and even the kingfisher putting in a welcome appearance.

"It was also good to see two Rotary Youth Leadership Award participants from Horsforth School, Alice Green and Stephen Royds-Jones coming back to volunteer on the day.

"!Aireborough Rotarians were happy as its ambassadors to show off the filter pump contained in every Aquabox sent to disaster areas turning dirty water into drinkable as they demonstrated.

"All funds collected including donations on booking will benefit the charities supported by both Aireborough Rotary and Inner Wheel as well as the Nature Reserve itself with its bustling café."
