Royds Street Woodland 2016

Hyndburn Green Spaces Forum and Woodnook Residents Community Association have been awarded grants totaling £31,000 to help make improvements to a woodland in the Woodnook Area of Accrington.

The improvements include woodland management, native tree planting, an improved welcoming entrance from Royds Street and the installation of fifteen bird nesting boxes. Access has also been improved and a new section of woodland path now helps the area link up with the wider countryside. These improvements help to compliment work recently completed in the wider area of the Bullough Park and Woodnook Vale countryside.

Up to £24,800 has been awarded by the Lancashire Environmental Fund, £2,000 from the Windfall Fund, £1,000 from Peel and Barnfield Area Council and a further £3,200 from Hyndburn Borough Council.
