Heworth Holme path in the making, March 2017

After a productive summer of monitoring the becks and their wider habitats, we are back to weekly conservation sessions. We will continue to develop the wetland meadow through seed sowing, further developing the wildlife scrapes and improving access with the new footpath. These events are funded thanks to the 2016-17 Lord Mayor’s fundraising activities.

This work 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.

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 jonathan@stnicks.org.uk for more details or to confirm you are planning to attend
