Family invite

Have your say

FAMILIES are invited to help give a popular nature spot a spruce-up this week.

Volunteers of all ages are needed for the spring clean at the Family Wood, off Elwick Road, in Hartlepool, on Friday, April 13, between 10am and 2pm.

The event is free and all equipment will be provided.

Hannah Woodhouse, Hartlepool Borough Council’s countryside and rights of way assistant, said: “Family Wood is an important and much loved green area linking Burn Valley Gardens and Summerhill.

“If you’ve got an hour or two to spare, please come along and join us for some litter picks and to plant some spring flowers.”

People should wear sensible clothing and footwear and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

No booking is needed and people should meet at the Family Wood entrance in Elwick Road.
