Yorkshire Water mucks in to help out at Sheffield nature reserve

Volunteers from Yorkshire Water were at Greno Woods Nature Reserve in Sheffield to help with some much-needed conservation work.

Members of the Network Service South East Team helped out the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust fix fences and stone walls, installed storage boxes which will house nature trail equipment, installed hedging and cleared vegetation.

Yorkshire Water Network Service Team Leader, Heather Woodhead, said: “It was an opportunity to put something back into the community we work within, which the team were keen to support.

“The team showed great determination, enthusiasm and working together to complete the tasks – the wet weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits.”

Grenoside Woods Manager for Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust, Chris Doar, said: “At 173 hectares, Greno Woods is a big site to manage and there's always plenty to do. Volunteer effort makes a big difference to our ability to protect this beautiful woodland and we are grateful to the men and women from Yorkshire Water who gave up their time on a wet Friday to help us improve our toddler trail and fix our boundaries.  We hope you come again and enjoy the woods in sunshine!”
