The work party group of volunteers as well as the Kirklees Youth Offending Team have been up digging deep holes and putting the posts in. Hot work in the sunshine!

No one could quite believe the luck when we were told that we could have a swarm of bees, especially so soon after the bee course. Rob and Alison went over to York on Monday to pick up the precious package and bring it back to Marsden. Having enjoyed the beautiful weather in York, they are probably wondering why they now have to be living in rainy Marsden.
The bees have been transferred into their new hive and seem to be settling in well...so far!
Everyone got very creative and there were all sorts of designs and decorations, and a complete mixture of ages taking part. Children and parents all got stuck in, enjoying the hot sunshine while decorating their pots. A very enjoyable day had by all, especially as it was all free, thanks to funding from Kirklees Council.

The walk visits a number of locations on the Marsden Moor Estate, including Pule Hill, Black Moss and Swellands reservoirs and Close Moss, and conveniently it starts and finishes at Marsden Railways Station. Allow approximately 4hrs 30 mins for the walk. It's free to download, so try it, and see what you can learn about the Marsden Moor Estate.
