Ring a Ring o' Roses!

The Green Team recently completed a community project in Darfield, Barnsley creating a planting area on the main roundabout. 

The Green Team recently completed a community project in Darfield, Barnsley creating a planting area on the main roundabout (as you enter the village). This was something that local residents have been wanting as a feature in their village for a long time and Groundwork South Yorkshire were more than happy to support them in this project. Children from nearby schools also gave a helping hand, in the planting of the ring. 

I would like to thank you and the team for the fantastic job, you have done for us on “The Ring” in Darfield. The end result is just what we wanted. Also the help you gave us throughout this project, inclusing Groundwork staff taking time to help the local children with the planting was so appreiciated and the kids loved it. Many thanks and well done.” (Cllr Dorothy Coates, Darfield). Cllr Dorothy Coates commissioned the work from us, with funding from the Darfield Ward Alliance. 

Here are some photos of "The Ring" as it is known locally:
