£2,000 Grant for Selby Woodland Trust

Selby Town Centre

4:54pm 25th October 2013

Selby Community Trust has again been successful in securing grant funding for the popular Community Woodland on Bondgate Selby.

A rant of almost £2,000 has been awarded from the Community Spaces fund. The grant will be used to buy additional hedging trees and shrubs to form a dedicated area of the woodland for dogs.

Steve Shaw-Wright Chair of the Selby Community Trust said

“The Community Trust has a long and successful record of securing external funding and grants that benefit the community of Selby. From modernising the Scott Rd Community Centre to the provision of play equipment on the Community field. The Community Woodland is the trusts most recent venture in to enhancing the public realm and has proved an instant hit with the local resident and their dogs. The dedicate area for dogs will I hope prove as popular.”

“The planting of the trees and shrubs will be undertaken by Selby school children under the direction of Groundwork Selby, working with schools has been a key part of the whole project, the unique seating areas on the site were produced by local sculptor Alisa Magnus who worked with several schools on the designs.

As a Trust we hope to develop the site further with additional  planting that will encourage wildlife in the area, and we will look to external funding to support this a future development and projects.”
