Crows need help

Wednesday, 23 November 2016

Dick Lane challenge on Wednesday, 7th December

The path at Dick Lane (East of Stoodley Pike) is an important route linking Mytholmroyd and Cragg Vale with the Pike. It has been deteriorating for many years and is now almost impassable unless you are wearing waders!

CROWS now have one-off funding from Calderdale Highways to put in 100ft of boardwalks so walkers can cross the deep drainage problems.

Help needed moving timber

Our problem is that we need to transport 250 (mostly short) lengths of timber up to the site which is a pretty big task. So we want to enlist the help of local walkers and runners to help us with a bit of 'crowd portage'.
The timber will be at Swillington Farm from about 9.30 on Wednesday December 7th. (Swillington Farm is the last farm on Kilnshaw Lane, NW of the Pike).

CROWS would be extremely grateful if anyone could spare us an hour to carry some timber or just arrange to do a walk or run that goes up to Stoodley Pike picking up a couple of pieces of timber on the way.

Please tell your friends - the more people we have to help, the easier it will be.

Any questions about this request, contact CROWS by email or 0787 296 0942.

In the case of bad weather (eg snow) we will put a message up on our website www.crows-coop.org.uk at 8am to say whether we are going to cancel. We will also put a sign up at the Hebden Bridge end of Kilnshaw Lane.
