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!
Thanks to the everyone who came along in March. We managed to clear out a lot more blocked drainage ditches – muddy work but well worthwhile!
Our next meet is Saturday 8th April 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. The ground’s started drying out now but decent footwear and gloves are still a must.
Hot drinks and homemade cakes will be our reward when we’ve finished.
Saturday 20th May – Plant sale 9.30am
Saturday 10th June – 10am
Saturday 8th July – 10am
The plant sale is our next meeting and replaces our working session on the second Saturday.
Please let us know if you can help out as we’ll be looking for volunteers to help set up, run the stalls, bake cakes and help clear up afterwards. We’ll ask at the April meeting but if you wont be there please e-mail to offer your services!
See you all soon!
