At Oak Primary School in Crosland Moor we have just started a gardening club for children in key stage two. We meet once a week after school and spend an hour working in the school garden. Unfortunately, the garden has been neglected for many years and is overgrown and untidy. We have spent the last few weeks clearing the site with our hand and a few tools that teachers have brought in from home. The children are really excited about transforming the space over the coming seasons with plants, flowers and vegetables. We would really appreciate the opportunity to borrow some tools from the Beaumont Park tool store so that we can really get started on improving the garden.
SCEG manage the greenspaces around Shelley in partnership with Kirklees. We keep pathways clear, manage Shelley Educational Foundation land, plant trees, work with other groups in the area such as BEG and encourage residents to join us to help in all tasks from weeding and pruning to clearing brambles, creating and maintaining wildflower meadow(s). We always take the best approach for wildlife and biodiversity and engage experts where we can to ensure we are "doing the right thing". We also work closely with the SCA and SEF within the village to agree work beforehand.
