THE 10 Villages Conservation Group is continuing to help with the Great Crested Newt Project in Clayton West and the next task day is on Saturday, August 14.
The project is creating a suitable habitat for the protected creature by making a series of linked ponds alongside the Kirklees Light Railway line. The volunteers will be digging ponds and ditches.
The group will be meeting at 10am outside the Council Offices, on Commercial Road, in Skelmanthorpe.
