A PIECE of land in Carrbrook, which will soon be added to the green belt, is being transformed thanks to the efforts of one group.
Tameside Council handed over part of Woodview, known locally as The Fold, to Carrbrook AdventuRose.
Now efforts are being made to turn the patch of land into an outdoor space that not only will provide somewhere nice for families to have picnics but also part of the food chain.
For once a fence has been completed, planters will be installed creating a big station and planting station.
When everything is finished, there will also be a herb patch and a den for the children to relax.
Every Sunday the group – which was known as Carrbrook Crafty Skids – meets at Woodview and as Rosemary Maken from it describes: “The children run freely and safely and they absolutely love it.
“We have picnics and some days we go on little adventures.
“There’s still the same lot of 18 kids and parents and grandparents.
“We’re turning it into somewhere for the kids of Carrbrook to come and plant, build, learn all about nature and some life lessons along the way.
“We are just starting to put a fence together made from pallets.”
Rosemary says she has had approaches from Carrbrook residents to offer help but she admits she is on the lookout for an extra sponsor, to go with the raja Brothers store on Huddersfield Road and
Inspire sports Coaching.
She added: “Ideally they would be in the tool and gardening trade who may be willing to gift what we do desperately need.”
