The Veolia Environmental Trust funded work has all be made possible by the hard work of an amazing bunch of volunteers who meet up every Monday and Friday at the much loved wildlife haven that is Skelton Grange. They have built the new boardwalk and bridge from oak and recycled plastic, and made improvements to the site’s woodland, riverside, pond and meadow habitats for wildlife and visitors to enjoy.
One volunteer said “It’s been great being outside – meeting and working with other people and learning new skills. I have a real sense of pride in what we've done.”
The Veolia Environmental Trust was established in 1997 under the Landfill Communities Fund and supports a wide range of community and environmental projects throughout England and Wales. Veolia has supported this initiative by contributing over £72m since it was established, which to date has been used to award over 2,000 grants to various projects including Skelton Grange Environment Centre.
There's always loads of ways to learn, volunteer and play in the natural environment at Skelton Grange an Environment Centre, an award winning eco-centre and nature area in Leeds. More information can be found at www.tcv.org.uk/skeltongrange or 01132430815 or firstname.lastname@example.org
