The following is a brief update of what is happening on the Halifax Estates, which may be of interest.

Volunteers picked litter along all of the minor roads with the Parishes totalling an incredible 179kg.
Thank you to all who took part for this fantastic effort. It is envisaged that this litter pick will become an annual event held each Spring.

Please let Denise have October syndicate orders by the 2nd October 2018.
Another succesful Countryside Learning Day was held on the Garrowby Estate on the 5th July 2017. The day was attended by 239 children from eight primary schools from across the East Riding of Yorkshire and provided an excellent opportunity for the children to gain an understanding of the important roles people play in the management of the countryside.
Thank you to everyone who gave up their time in either the organising or running of the day and also to those who attended.
The Fleece is now run by Russel and Louise Downs (formerly of the Cross Keys at Pocklington).
