ENVIRONMENT AWARD WINNERS 2018 - District 1040
TREES, BEES, BIRDS AND BUGS – A project which aims to protect and enhance our environment in a sustainable way.
Mirfield Rotary Club has long been vigilant of the need to protect our environment. Working with Mirfield Community Partnership, Club members have helped improve and maintain our canal towpath, develop a small canal side garden, create a nature reserve on Battyeford island and encourage maximum waste recycling and composting by taking part in a litter pick with the Canals and Rivers Trust.
This year our efforts were submitted to District 1040 annual environmental awards and we were delighted to have it recently confirmed we were this year's winners. This is the second time our club has been successful in winning the award - the last time being in 1996.
