Join us in the park this Sunday for local food & family fun

Natural Kirklees and the Parks and Greenspaces Team at Kirklees Council are hosting a special Summer Gala for groups who are involved in parks and green spaces in Kirklees. It’s a great opportunity to meet local environmental groups and there are lots of fun activities to try, both in the event marquee and around the park.

Join us in Greenhead Park on Sunday 12th August to meet lots of community groups, learn about what they do and take part in fun activities including: go on a mini bug hunt and find out the ideal lunch for a duck with River Holme Connections, learn about Clem’s Garden who work together to grow and sell flowers, supporting local charities and community projects with their profits, browse the Support to Recovery (S2R) plant stall, join in the Big Butterfly Count around the park, or create a piece of artwork using natural materials with Growing Works.

Growing Newsome will be there with plenty of home made treats, made from fruit and vegetables that have been grown in Newsome and donated by our generous volunteers and friends. Please come and visit us in the marquee on the event field near the top of the park (just across from the miniature train tracks). Our stall is open from 1pm to 4pm.

Music – Enjoy the sound of brass in the great outdoors with Slaithwaite Band. They will be performing on the Greenhead Park bandstand from 2pm to 4pm as part of a programme of concerts organised by the Friends of Greenhead Park. Limited seating is available and you are welcome to bring your own folding chairs or rugs.  Free – there will be a collection in aid of the Friends of Greenhead Park. There will also be music from the Ukulele Band in the marquee.

Refreshments – The Friends of Greenhead Park will be serving tea and cakes throughout the afternoon in the marquee – and running a craft building extravaganza.

We hope to see you there.

Bee Happy – beekeeping and wellbeing course

bee on borage flowerDo you know…

* How fast a bee can fly?

* How much honey a typical hive produces a year?

* Why the bee population is under serious threat?

If you are interested in bees and want to learn more about keeping bees and protecting our wildlife then get in touch with The Great Outdoors project on 01484 539531 and book your place on the next Bee Happy course!

But be quick the courses can be quite buzzzzzzzzy!

The next Bee Happy introduction to bee keeping course is a 6 week course running from Monday 17th November 2014 to Monday 22nd December 2014 from 1pm till 3pm in the Support to Recovery offices in Huddersfield.

The course is a fun and lighthearted introduction to ecotherapy, so participants will not only learn some basic facts about bees but you will also learn about why bees are so important to our eco-system and how important it is that we look after our environment whilst also supporting our own wellbeing.

After the course you will be invited to join the beekeeping project which Support to Recovery are running in partnership with the Huddersfield Bee Keepers Association at the Taylor Hill campus in Newsome.
