An Interim Committee for Cromwell Bottom.
From previous walks/meetings, there is no doubt that there is much interest and enthusiasm amongst the many users/visitors to Cromwell Bottom to be involved in a local group, helping manage this Local Nature Reserve to achieve its potential.
However, to help get on the way to establish a (hopefully constituted) group, it would be great to have a motivated and interested people come forward and help form an interim committee. This committee would work towards holding an A.G.M. next year and formalising a constitution. If you are interested in being involved, but uncertain about the roles, don’t worry, as Hugh has a wealth of experience in this area and we will be there to help in every way. Ideally, at least chair and secretarial positions would be filled in the interim, but all support is welcomed.
 If you can help/are interested, it’d be great to see you on: 
Wednesday 21st September 7:00pm  at the Brighouse Adult Learning Centre, room 13

Brighouse Adult Learning Centre – Church Lane Brighouse HD6 1AT

Telephone: 01484 714019

Off road usage.
Signs are going up to warn off trials bikes/quads from trespassing onto the Reserve. Barrier enhancements are also planned for the metal ‘gate’ by the Calder.
North Loop.
Look out for an e-mail in the near future for an evening meet about the plans for North Loop, as the Council moves towards re-capping the land fill in 2012.
Work Parties.
Saturday practical work parties will be starting again over the autumn. I’ll send out a start date in a couple of weeks for anyone keen to get grubby!!
