On Tuesday 25 February an exciting project got underway in the Community’s grounds. CR’s estates team welcomed a group from Open Country’s ‘Wild about Wakefield’ project.

Open Country is a Harrogate-based charity with almost 30 years of experience in enabling people with disabilities to access the countryside. They achieve this through a variety of countryside activities and the provision of information, training and advice. Their newest project aims to help people with disabilities in the Wakefield district access the countryside.

The group got off to a great start planting trees and putting up nest boxes, there was even time for hot drinks with the estates team! Plans are in place for further visits.
