Children help clean up the local park

Published 7 June 2018

Children from St Giles CE Academy in Pontefract helped WDH to clean up Monkhill Park.

Ten, year five children arrived with an excellent attitude to help WDH’s Central Landscape and Neighbourhood Team pick up litter and plant bulbs. They spent over two hours working together to make the park look more presentable for the tenants living around the area.

Monkhill Park was highlighted by residents, as an area that could benefit from  small scale environmental improvements. After visits and consultation with a number of neighbours is was decided to thin out the planting on the hedges and replant with a variety of interesting shrubs and plants. 

WDH is always keen to work with local residents as part of their Love Where You Live (LWYL) initiative.

Claire Secker, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer said: “It’s always a pleasure to work with schools on our LWYL projects and St Giles school were no exception. The pupils were well behaved and polite and thoroughly enjoyed their time improving their local park. I hope this is the first of many projects that we do together. The area looks fantastic and we have already had a number of residents commenting on the positive change the planting has made to the park.”
