Coming under Community this part of the group exists to undertake environmental projects on behalf of the club.

The Club has undertaken at least one environmental project in each year over recent times.

Many tree and hedge plantings have been completed since 2011/ 2012 in conjunction with The Forest of Bradford team (more recently Yorgreen CIC). Hundreds of trees were very successfully planted on each occasion and a high percentage of Club members were involved who had an enjoyable time carrying out the activity.

We will again contact Ian Butterfield at Yorgreen CIC (the organisation that we partner with to plant the trees) to see whether it would be feasible to return to sites we have previously planted, to remove the plastic tree shields to recycle them as we are now using compostable shields.
