Bradfield will be judged for the 2012 Yorkshire In Bloom competition on Tuesday 17 July at 12.30pm.
Please come along to the village hall and view our display of the work that has been done in 2011 and 2012 and to see what we have planned for the future.
In 2010 the major project was the new footbridge, the old one was washed away in the 2007 flood. The new bridge is made from a fallen Oak Tree from Bowden Hill and stood where the mass trespassers met in 1932. The walkers must have walked passed our tree. The Bridge was constructed by Robin Wood from Edale who only uses traditional wood working methods. The bridge is now complete and the stone boundary wall fixed, but the project is not yet complete as we are rebuilding the retaining wall on the river bank which will happen in the next few months. We would like to thank Comma, The Peak Park Sustainable Grant Fund for their support as this would not have been achieved without them.
Thanks to the Northern Community Assembly for funds granted from their Environmental Improvement fund to plant the 2012 spring bedding. Also thanks to the Woodland Trust for plants to continue the hedge in the community orchard.
