Kirkburton Parish Council 1000 Fruit Tree Project hits Grange Moor

A good turnout of local allotment holders meant the work was done relatively quickly. The hazel whips, gooseberry bushes, redcurrant and blackcurrant bushes will help maintain the banking next to the new drainage ditch

Yours truly, Robert Barraclough and Derek Hardcastle posing now the latest batch of planting is done.
