Residents highlight continuing issues with tree detritus

Residents in Foxwood have complained to the Council about continuing problems with leaves and other tree detritus impeding footpaths.

Not all paths were swept of debris in the autumn and now the recent high winds have added to the backlog of work.

The Foxwood Residents Association at its meeting on Wednesday decided to support once again the “Great British Spring Clean” initiative.

They are asking residents to join litter picking teams on the following dates

Saturday 28th March – Dickson Park

Saturday 4th April – Thanet Road Sports Area

Saturday 11th April – Central Foxwood Lane estate

It is hoped that residents groups from other parts of York will join in with the initiative

Generous Coop members boost residents association finances

The Foxwood Residents Association has received a cheque for £1920.81 as part of £17 million raised nationally from Co-op members.

The donation will help to sustain a programme of additional tree planting in the Foxwood area starting near the Herman Walk cycle path and extending into the Dickson Park

Residents Association officials are presented with the cheque at the Coops Beagle Ridge Drive store.
