I'll be launching a project to improve recreational spaces along the River Colne in Huddersfield
On June 26th I will be attending the launch of the Greenstreams Community Linear Park project at John Smith’s Stadium.
The project will involve identifying green spaces along the River Colne corridor and linking them in an easy-to-follow walk. Myself, as well as the Environmental Alliance, are supporting Greenstreams in the hope improvements will be made on the stretch between Milnsbridge and Cooper Bridge.
I'm really proud to have set up Greenstreams years ago, as our rivers have always run through the heart of our community.
I believe that the river is a great cultural feature of the area. It provides an opportunity for local people to take a relaxing walk or cycle ride in beautiful surroundings. These areas do need taking care of and this project will get more businesses helping community groups to look after them.
Businesses who attend the launch can find out how they can make an important contribution to improve their local environment and help secure the river as an cultural and economic asset for the district.
