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!
We had a good start to the new year at our January session – lots of volunteers and plenty of hard work.
The February session on Saturday 11th will include more clearing of paths, channels and areas with potential for future planting.
The ground is wet and boggy at the moment so sturdy footwear is a must – bring spades, forks and loppers if you have them.
Also keep a lookout for the daffodils and other bulbs which are starting to appear – we’ll hopefully have a glorious display in a few weeks time.
Meet at 10am in the main Hollies car park (off Weetwood Lane).
Hot drinks and cakes will be available to restore our energy levels at the end!
