Another successful Community Litter Pick… On Saturday, 4 June four volunteers managed to collect seven bags of litter and a 2 square metre section of welded wire fencing!
The areas covered in this pick were Black Road, former Whitwell Terrace, the Railway walk opposite Woodridge up to the Cricket Ground, the edge of Sports Field and finally Goatbeck. Not bad for a couple of hours work! Thank you to all volunteers.
Thank you so very much to all those who attended our Christmas event in December. We estimate that over 400 people came to see the Christmas Tree lights switched-on and to hear our wonderful local school children sing.
We hope you all had a very merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year to you all.
Some photographs from the event are below:
…tops to it railings with a total of 260 points!
Look how amazing the fencing at Holliday Park now looks! The gold tops really set it off. Thank you to all who contributed to helping get the fence back in great shape!
What a wonderful afternoon had by all. The official opening of the new play areas in Holliday Park took place this afternoon (20 April, 2.00pm).
Many, many thanks to everyone that attended. All the children present seemed to really enjoy themselves and even the weather was great for this special occasion! Pictures from today:
Four volunteers braved the snow, rain and cold on Saturday morning (16 April) for our third Community Litter Pick. Some very interesting items recovered from Goatbeck, Langley Moor this morning; a camping kettle, a bag of six empty bottles of Prosecco, half a child’s bike, and a pair of trousers! Our volunteers filled 18 bags!
Our Chair, Danny, also organised an additional litter pick on Monday 18 April with three managers and three staff volunteers from Tesco. The pick took place along the Bishop Brandon walkway from Brandon Lane to the Cricket Club at Brandon. Our volunteers filled 14 bags.
These two picks takes the total picked to 75 bags collected from our four litter picks.
These picks were completed with our newly acquired equipment purchased with a donation from the Temperance Trust .
If anyone wants to put forward an area in Langley Moor for our next litter pick please let us know.
Just in time for the Easter holidays, Holliday Park is completed and open for business to be enjoyed by all!
Unfortunately the seat and down wire is missing from our zip wire, but this certainly doesn’t spoil the enjoyment of the other facilities, which within moments of the security fencing being taken down, were being tested by local children! Picnic benches and seating are installed and awaiting some good weather!
We are very proud of our new park, and very thankful to everyone who helped make this project a reality.
The refurbishment of the play area in Holliday Park is getting nearer…
Weather permitting, work should begin on Monday 22 February. You will recall all the new play equipment has been chosen by local children. New fencing and picnic tables and more will be installed.
Can’t wait to see it when it is all finished.
County Councillors John Turnbull and Paul Taylor and also Danny Bone, the Chair of the Friends of Langley Moor, receive the Environmental Commendation for Boyne Place from the Chair of Durham County Council – Coun Jan Blakey at this years Environmental Awards ceremony.
We are pleased to confirm that our award for Boyne Place is now displayed for the community courtesy of Lloyds Bank on High Street, Langley Moor.
They are displaying our trophy in the window of the branch facing prominently onto the High Street.
We are very pleased to be able to put it on public display, and I’m sure you’re as proud as we are that this fantastic community space has been recognised!
Our annual Christmas tree lights switch on event on Sunday, 29 November 2015, was a great success. Thank you to the 300+ members of the local community who turned out to see our splendid tree illuminated once more.
Sherburn Hill Salvation Army Band played festive tunes from 3.45pm, and choirs from St Patricks and Langley Moor Primary Schools sand carols from 4.30pm, ahead of the lights being switched-on at 5pm.
Here are some images from the event:
