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!
Many thanks to the large number of volunteers who came along in February. We managed to clear huge areas of brambles and clear out a lot of blocked drainage ditches – muddy work but well worthwhile!
Our next meet is Saturday 11th March meeting at 10am as usual in the car park. We’ll be doing more of the same kind of work so bring spades, forks, secateurs and loppers if possible. It’s even more muddy than last time so decent footwear and gloves are essential. The snowdrops and daffodils we planted are looking fantastic and should spur us on whilst we’re working!
Hot drinks and homemade cakes will be our reward when we’ve finished.
Saturday 8th April – 10am
Saturday 20th May – Plant sale 9.30am
Saturday 10th June – 10am
The plant sale is on the THIRD Saturday of May and replaces our working session on the second Saturday. Please bear the date in mind as we’ll be looking for volunteers to help set up, run the stalls, bake cakes and help clear up afterwards – there’ll be more details in next month’s e-mail.
See you all soon!
