A litter pick organised by WDH and partners gave part of Airedale a lift on Monday despite the rain.
The Wakefield Together 'Love Where You Live' clean-up was the main event in a day of environmental activities in which adults and children took advantage of half-term holidays to visit The Triangle to enjoy a hot drink and catch up on plans to improve their community.
Mick Walsh, WDH Service Director for Neighbourhoods, joined WDH clean-up teams and police officers to get the event under way.
On Tuesday a Street Pact meeting involving Castleford Neighbourhood Policing Team saw officers out and about, knocking on doors to gauge people’s opinions on community safety.
Tomorrow (Thursday, 19 February) The Triangle is to host health and wellbeing events between 10 am and 2 pm. WDH employees will help children make fruit kebabs while other agencies, including Leeds Breast Screening Service and Wakefield Council Sport and Active Lifestyles, are raising awareness of lifestyle issues and choices.
Airedale and Ferry Fryston Neighbourhood Management Board, made up of people who live and work in the area, also aims to improve residents’ lives with information and events.
WDH Estate Manager James Sharpe said: “We and our partners are committed to supporting the community and the activities we’ve arranged reinforce our work in Airedale.
“These events help to create a firm foundation for our future work together and are very popular with residents.”
