Who We Are
We are a group of local volunteers committed to the maintenance, preservation and enhancement of the natural beauty of The Hollies woodland area.
The Hollies are situated in Weetwood, Leeds, and are linked to Meanwood Park.
Upon entering The Hollies from Weetwood Lane, there is a formally planted area with native and exotic tree species. This is set alongside seating areas and open spaces. The gardens contain an amazing variety of species!
A belated thank you to all our volunteers for their hard work throughout 2015.
Thanks also to those who came along in January – the weather was foul but we all enjoyed (?) getting wet and muddy clearing ditches and unblocking drainage pipes.
Our next date is Saturday February 13th, meeting as usual in the car park at 10am.
We were fortunate to have had help last year from the Leeds University Conservation Volunteers and they hope to join us again on the 13th to assist us in our efforts.
If possible please bring along saws, secateurs and cutters – and don’t forget gardening gloves and boots as it’s still very muddy. There will be hot drinks and delicious home made cakes waiting for us at the end!
Also make a note of the following dates for our meetings:
Saturday 12th March at 10am
Saturday 9th April at 10am
Saturday 14th May will be our annual plant sale which will start at 9.30am – more details next time.
Hope you can join us on one or more of these dates!
