Churwell Woodland Adventure

The Mayor of Morley, Councillor Robert Finnigan attended the Churwell Woodland Adventure on Sunday, 9th July 2017 along with the Mayoress, Lisa Finnigan and the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress, Councillor Roger and Christine Bell.  The event, run by Churwell Environmental Volunteers, showcased the work the group had undertaken with delivering a woodlands railway, along with other improvements to Clark Spring Woods in Churwell.

Councillor Robert Finnigan said “It was an excellent event and the weather was delightful.  The work the Environmental Volunteers have undertaken, the woodland railway, the dipping pond along with improvements to the footpaths and signage, is a tribute to their commitment to their local community.  The woods, often overlooked in the past, is now a thriving place of interest for local people, both young and old.  It is an excellent community asset!”

Residents were treated to trips on the miniature railway, an exploration theme at the dipping pond along with raffles, cake stalls and tombolas.

Councillor Roger Bell said “It was a privilege and a pleasure to attend.  The volunteers work hard all year round, with the support of their local community, to deliver a work programme that has transformed the woods to a particularly special locations.”
