ECO-FRIENDLY work is being carried out at Beechwood Park, Holmfield, Halifax.

The Green Gym members, aged 20 to 70, meet every Tuesday from 10am to 3pm.

Anyone can get involved in the scheme.

Calderdale College’s Declan Fusco and Rob Watkin, from Voluntary Action Calderdale, spend their time at the outdoor “gym” transforming dead wood into wildlife-friendly environments.

They spend the day in woodland management, cutting back dead bushes, pruning trees and creating new habitats for animals.

The group is always on the lookout for new people to get involved. It is suitable for all ages and abilities but children should be over five. For more information contact Moira Cash on 07825 935075.
