Community Christmas Tree

Its begining to look a lot like Christmas….A huge thank you to everyone involved in arranging the pruchase and the placing of our very own community Christmas Tree.

You can see the tree outside Hilltop school, Thank you to Simon Panther from Panather Roofing for the amazing donation of the tree

Massive thanks to Jacqueline Fairburn at the Hare and Hounds for supplying us with a big plant pot , thanks to Karen Mitchell and Donna Haigh for buying us the lights and to  Gill Cowling who has kindly offered to decorate it.

There is also a smaller tree for the village children to place their own decorations if they would like to.

Haighwood Planning

Sadly the campaign to protect our green spaces has hit a snag, Highways have said they have no objections to the proposed 299 houses! 

We are therefore taking up arms and upping the fight so to speak, the battle continues.

We need as much support as possible, please write objections to Leeds City council, please ask your parents, your siblimngs, your children, your friends, their friends- in fact any one you can think of to support us by penning a letter

thank you

Rainbows and Rocks

The river of colour or the rainbow of stones, depending on what you want to call it, is now in place, hopfully for many years to comes.

A huge thank you to EVERYONE involved

Hopefully in 10 years time the children will still stop to look at the stones at Hilltop and smile.

The middle stones are put in place

the colourful end result

They would especially like to thank the lady who came out with coffee for them!
