Newlay’s community garden has taken a bit of a battering during the summer drought – but a community tidy-up is hoping to give it a new lease of life.
Volunteers from the Newlay and Whitecote Residents Association (NAWRA) are aiming to meet at 10am on Sunday, 28th October on Leeds and Bradford Road. A spokesperson said:
“Some of the plants have died and this has left gaps for weeds to grow. We would like to tidy up the garden and get it ready for further replanting next spring.
“Please come and help if you can. Wear suitable clothing for the weather. We will provide some tools and trailer to take away weeds but a trowel or spade may be useful.”
