These family-friendly sessions take place at the same time every Friday until further notice – you can come to as many (or few) as you like. All help is much appreciated!

Work programme: footpath construction to ensure the site is open and accessible all year round for people to enjoy, sowing and planting native wildflowers, scything and more. For details of each session, please contact

This work is part of our project of restoring the wetland meadow at Heworth Holme and York Becks Project, which includes the creation of wildlife ‘scrapes’ – seasonal wetland areas to benefit wildlife and help with flood management. 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.

This event is supported by the Postcode Local Trust – a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

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