Friends of Beechwood Park Meeting – Thursday 8 November 2018

Join the Friends of Beechwood Park Group meeting on Thursday 8 November 2018, 6:30pm at St Andrew’s Church, Beechwood Road. Halifax.

All are welcome.

Beechwood Park is one of Calderdale’s best kept secrets!

This Local Nature Reserve and urban park is situated off Beechwood Drive within walking distance of a number of schools in North Halifax and as you may be aware it used to be home to an army camp.

It’s not all nature though, this park offers great facilities to cater for all ages and preferences including parks, football pitches, a bike track, crown green bowls and for those of you who enjoy working out, you can find some fantastic gym style equipment dotted around.

If you head up towards the more wooded area of the reserve (Tar Hill) you may even be fortunate enough to spot a member of the Roe Deer family that reside there so be sure to have a camera with you on your next visit just in case.

The Friends of Beechwood Park Group consists of local residents who work tirelessly to keep improving this outstanding place with litter picks and other beneficial activities.

If you are interested in being part of the Friends of Beechwood Park Group, call Tony King or Dan Marham on 0300 555 0266 for information and dates of future meetings or email tony.king@calderdale.gov.uk

Tree Planting at Beechwood Park

Members of the Friends of Beechwood Park group together with other park volunteers and staff from Calderdale MBC and North Halifax Partnership spent an enjoyable few hours planting saplings in Beechwood Park. There are a lot of fantastic residents who give up their time to do litter picking, dredging the pond and keeping the park clean and tidy. If this is something you would like to get involved with and want further information please contact Tony King on 0300 555 0266 or email him on tony.king@calderdale.gov.uk

If you use the park you will have noticed that improvements have been made to footpaths in the park, new steps have been installed, new benches also installed and repairs to the footbridge just below the pond. This work was carried out by the councils gardening team (who do a great job keeping your park in good order) but paid for through funds raised by the friends of Beechwood Park group.

If you are in the park and see any issues such as damage, flytipping, off road motor bikes please don’t hesitate to report it to the council or the police.
