Update to road closures

Submitted by julia on Sat, 25th Sep 2021, 9:05am

On Friday 24th I noted the junction of Nelson Street and Mill Lane is open again. 

The gas works are moving incrementally towards the junction of Mill Lane and Manchester Road. There were originally scheduled to be finished by 18th October, so just keep an eye out.

If you are planning to drive to Apple Day on 10th October you should be aware of road closures on Mill Lane at the junction with Nelson Street. You will need to approach Bowling Park Drive from either Wakefield Road or Manchester Road. 

Pedestrians and cyclists have access through the roadworks.

We have set a date for Apple Day 2021 - Sunday 10th October, 12-4pm.

Hope to see you there!

Apple Day(s) 2020

You won't be surprised to hear that we cannot run an Apple Day as we know and love this year.

This is especially disappointing as we would have been celebrating out 20th Anniversary, but we are still hoping to host small group visits. Read about our plans here

Aviva Community Fund Project - please support our fundraising

Submitted by julia on Thu, 27th Aug 2020, 12:34pm

We have access to some great wildlife rich spaces in and around Bradford, and want to make the most of them. They have always offered a great opportunity for enjoyment, learning and for positive health and wellbeing, but now we know they are the best places for social contact too. But with group sizes restricted, and safe travel more complicated, we are having to change the way we work, but still want to reach as many people as possible. 

Covid-19 Update

Submitted by julia on Tue, 17th Mar 2020, 7:23pm

As of today, 17th March 2020, we are suspending delivery of group activities; Tuesdays' Wildlife Filed Visits, Shaping Spaces on Wednesdays and the Friday Conservation Volunteer Group. 

We cannot say when these sessions will resume, but we will keep in touch throughout this period, as we will respond to further advice from the government. 

We want to keep in touch with everyone, and will do our best to make use of Facebook and Twitter to share information and just keep us all in touch with our natural environment. Please share your ideas for keeping in touch.
