Our Future Beeston June update

Over the past couple of months, Climate Hub Worker James has been hosting energy saving drop-in sessions to help residents manage their rising bills at St Luke’s Cares, Asha Neighbourhood Project, Rethink Food and libraries in Beeston and on Dewsbury Road.

We are continuing these over the summer so come along to discuss discount schemes, energy saving tips and climate action. Check out the Our Future Beeston Facebook page for more info: www.facebook.com/ourfuturebeeston

We are also hosting a regular Climate Hub at Dewsbury Road Community Hub, Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7pm. This is a chance to discuss your climate concerns, learn how to get involved and see how we can support your projects. We have activities for all ages each week, so why not come along.

Our May Day ‘Get Involved with Growing’ session at Beeston Village Community Centre was attended by 20 families, the children made plate gardens, potted seeds and herb cuttings, and designed their own mini gardens.

Work has started on first bin yard garden project, with volunteers clearing rubbish, repairing walls, and removing the broken concrete and rubble. Cllr Andrew Scopes has kindly organised a community skip to take away the rubble and fly tipping on 18 June, so if you could volunteer a few hours to help on that date please get in touch via the e-mail below.

Rejuvenating run-down bin yards goes further than simply storing bins. This project creates fantastic communal spaces which can be used for planting, composting, and socialising, as well as making recycling more enjoyable. If you have a bin yard you would like transforming, please get in touch and we will work with you and your neighbours to make it possible.

To get involved or share your views, please contact James at ourfuturebeeston@gmail.com
