Ward Committee funds local improvements

Funding from the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Committee continues to make a difference to our area.

On the Revival estate, off Tadcaster Road, there are four grit bins which were installed when the estate was first built. Local Lib Dem councillors have been trying to find out who is responsible for them, but it seems no-one is!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have therefore stepped in and have agreed that the Ward Committee will ‘adopt’ these grit bins. They have all now been re-filled (paid for from the ward budget) and two have been relocated to ensure a more even distribution across the estate.

Further up Tadcaster Road, Brunswick Organic Nursery has delivered two wheelchair-accessible raised beds to Dringhouses library. The beds have been funded from the ward budget, and are a further addition to the wonderful revamped patio area at the side and rear of the library.
