River Aire Clean Up

Public spirited Baildon residents are planning a litter pick on the banks of the River Aire from Baildon Bridge, towards Esholt.

Anyone wishing to get involved should meet at Baildon Recreation Centre, off Green Lane, at 2pm on the day.

Litter picking equipment will be provided by Shipley Area Co-ordinator’s Office.

Muck & Bother

Windhill & Bolton Woods Community centres are unveiling 'Crime & Grime' displays to heighten awareness of environmental and crime issues in the area. They will encourage self help and reporting issues and a 'post box' is being provided to gather the information which will be opened weekly by the Council Warden or PCSO. The boards are an action in the ward plan thought up by the CD workers and Ward Officer. They are already labelled as the 'Muck & Bother' wall at one centre.

All Well in Crag

The Crag Wellbeing partnership, that was set up and is chaired by the Ward Officer, has been successful in being included in the 'Our Place' funding initiative.

The 'logic model' and improvement plan for the area has seen the partnership being selected for funding and support. The money will be spent on networkers and a specialist alcohol worker, also the provision of a base in an InCommunities flat to give presence and improve accessibility.

HALE, who is now the lead partner, has submitted this bid on behalf of the group. Last week they were informed that a further £13,000 was available due to the pioneering nature of the group’s work but spending plans need to be in by next week.

The HALE manager and Ward Officer are undertaking training in Liverpool this Thursday to take this initiative forward and hopefully obtain further and increased funding in subsequent years. Recruitment of the staff and negotiations for the flat commence next week.

Fun on Fridays

The community development worker from Windhill Community Centre is introducing 'Fun On Fridays' to accompany 'Food on Fridays' which is already up and running.

The sessions include activities, games and a disco and all parents must be accompanied by a child. The initiative hopes to engage the community and involve them in a series of workshops to gauge strength and weaknesses in the area - 'the state of the estate' as it is called - that will feed into the ward planning process. The initiative is funded by Community First, an initiative administered by the Ward Officer.

Green Dog Walkers Promoted at Burley Dog Show

Dotty Dalmatian and Polly Pooch attended the Burley Dog Show last Saturday to promote the Green Dog Walkers Scheme - a friendly, non-confrontational way of combating dog fouling.

Over 30 people have now signed up to join the scheme in Burley. Feedback has been extremely positive from responsible dog owners who are grateful to Bradford Council for trying to combat this type of anti social behaviour.
