COMMUNITY groups and charities are being invited to celebrate the re-opening of the Spen Valley Greenway.
Yorkshire Water is inviting organisations to the 'Welcome back to the Greenway' event on Yorkshire Day – Sunday, August 1.
Local charity and fundraising groups, cycling clubs, equestrian clubs, walking clubs and any other similar groups are being urged to get in touch with the company if they would like to use the event to publicise their work to the local community.
The event celebrates the completion of a £15m Yorkshire Water scheme to install an eight-mile sewer pipe along the route of the Greenway between Heckmondwike and its recently upgraded Mitchell Laithes Waste Water Treatment Works in Earlsheaton, Dewsbury.
Amy Bradley, from Yorkshire Water’s Community Engagement Team, said: “All we ask is that the charities, fundraising groups or clubs are local to the Spen Valley Greenway and that they are available on Yorkshire Day.
“There will be a procession down a section of the Greenway and lots of activities going on at the Woodlands Conference Centre in Heckmondwike, including, penny farthing demonstrations, Victorian cyclists, free ice cream and the opportunity to ride a selection of bikes.”
