This seasonal task work day – we’ll be scything and scrape building in August to September – is part of our York Becks Project, which includes restoring the wetland meadow at Heworth Holme. Our aim is to make this valuable green space more colourful and attractive for both the local community and wildlife. Heworth Holme is a remnant of old countryside in the town, protected from development by its regular winter flooding and part of a wildlife corridor between St Nicks Nature Reserve and other green spaces along the Tang Hall Beck.

These events are part of our York Becks Project, funded thanks to Lord Mayor 2016-17’s fundraising.

Who is the event suitable for?
Anyone who’d like to have a go at volunteering, meeting new people and enjoying the outdoors while doing something useful as part of One Planet Living. Families and younger people are welcome – there will be a range of tasks for all ages. Please note that under 18s need parental consent and under 13s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Free entry, please contact for more details or to confirm you are planning to attend
