Green and Clean Forum
The next Green and Clean Forum takes place at Cardigan House, Ferncliffe Road on Saturday 9th June, from 10am to 12pm. This is a gathering for anyone interested in helping to care for our environment, whether by tending flower beds, planting containers, picking up litter or campaigning against dog fouling.
Items on the agenda include a discussion about setting up a Friends of Myrtle Park group, so if you enjoy the park and would like to help it develop, please do come along and make your views known. Our guest speaker this time will be Nick Milsom from the Aire Rivers Trust, and there will be information from the new Plastic-free Bingley group. We will also have the usual round-up and sharing of the activities of local gardening and parks group. You don’t need to be a member of a group to come along!
Other Green and Clean news
The Council’s summer floral displays are again being provided by Carlton Nurseries and are being extended out of the centre of Bingley into Cottingley, Crossflatts, Gilstead, Eldwick and Poplar House. There will be a new colour scheme this year, and the planters will be installed in the second week of June, with some items in place in time for the first summer market. Look out too for the bedding plants being supplied by the Town Council to gardening groups across Bingley, with the support of Bradford Council.
Litter picks continue to be well-supported, and the next one is on 16th June – a 2pm start this time, and we’ll be tackling the Crossflatts end of the canal towpath. Details to come shortly; please keep an eye on our Facebook page and website.
