24th March 2002
Action Day

The Action Day included litter collection and path maintenance, and was well attended.

Litter collection was concentrated at the Allerton Grange end of the woods and the pictures below give an indication of the amount of debris gathered, including car tyres, bikes, and even an old bed frame.

Path maintenance took place in front of the old Gipton Spa Bath House, as well as within the woods themselves, and consisted of clearing debris, defining path edges and spreading gravel.

As always, all the necessary equipment (including wood, gravel and other construction material, litter picking claws, rubbish bags, gloves and spades) was supplied by the Friends to all volunteers who came.
