The Foxwood Residents Association is asking for help with a community garden project at the Foxwood Community centre which will see a large amount of wood chippings spread on flower beds. The move is intended to discourage week growth next season when the Association will be entering the “Yorkshire in Bloom” contest.
Some of the chippings will be spread on a new woodland path
Anyone with some time to spare helping spread the chippings should ring Sue on York 794111
