June Newsletter

This month
The horticultural students from Calderdale College came and replanted the railing baskets for us. We have added some wooden edging to the gravel at the Jubilee Gardens to tidy this area and it has greatly improved it. The group supported the library to have a children’s day to plant 5 ‘pots of colour’ to represent the Olympic rings, these can be seen outside the library. The group organised a photographic competition at the library for children to be judged on their open day on 30th June.

Vandals Strike
Sadly we have been hit by vandals again, they took the vast majority of the summer bedding from the two barrels at the bus stop and they also took the blue plants in the wall planters on one side. This is very upsetting and costly to the group. Any one with any information regarding this please e-mail us.

Please pick up any litter you see around the village the Yorkshire In Bloom Judges will be visiting on the 18th July. If you see the judges in the village please talk to them they would love to meet you.

Do you have any unwanted brick-a-brac which we could make use of on our Prize every time tombola at Rushbearing? If you have anything we could use just ring one of the committee and we will arrange to collect. Thank you.

Thank you to all
