£11,000 Won for York Nature Area
5:48am 3rd December 2012
Chapman’s Pond comprises seven acres of beautiful public open space owned by City of York Council off Moor Lane, Woodthorpe. It is popular with fishermen, dog walkers and nature lovers.
In February, £2,000 was also awarded to the Friends of Chapman’s Pond through the York Community Pride Fund.
Coun. Semlyen said:
“I am delighted to have led this application on behalf of the Friends of Chapman’s Pond, a vibrant group making a difference and loving where they live. This grant supports volunteers looking after our natural environment. Anyone who wants to join can contact me. We still need Tree Wardens and people willing to help keep the site tidy.”
