CROWS are back!

Community Rights of Way Service (CROWS) are back improving and maintaining footpaths and bridleways in the Upper Calder and Ryburn Valleys.

They have completed a risk assessment and have developed a safe way of working which is inline with current government guidance.

£1561.51 was raised during by Cllr Dr Carol Stow during her Mayoral year (2019-20) for her chosen charity CROWS. The money raised will help the charity to continue with their valuable work of improving and maintaining the footways and bridleways across the upper Calder and Ryburn Valleys for us all to enjoy.

Richard, a volunteer with CROWS highlighted the benefits of the fundraising:

"CROWS have identified a long list of work in Hebden Royd (e.g. broken stiles, overgrown paths, drainage problems). The grant from the Mayors fund will allow us to get stuck in as soon as we able to start work. Many thanks to the council, the officers and the public who organised and supported all the fundraising events last year"
