Keep Leeds green: Volunteers praised for “invaluable contribution” towards protecting the city’s green spaces
Organisations and community groups have been out in full force to show support for campaigns looking to tackle litter in parks and green spaces.
Volunteers have joined members of the council’s parks and countryside team to help on litter picks, conservation projects and maintenance on a number of sites in the city.
The council has offered personal thanks to all volunteers, community organisations and local businesses that have offered help and assistance.
Councillor Salma Arif, Leeds City Council’s executive member for public health and active lifestyles, said: “we are very fortunate in Leeds that we have so many community and friends of groups that day-in, day-out are doing such a wonderful job with our hard working parks team.”
“I would like to thank them for all their efforts.”
She encouraged “anyone who might be interested in volunteering and supporting our work at local community parks and spaces to contact us as soon as possible.”
