Spring Clean-up 2005
Once again, local residents gave up their time this weekend (9-10th April) to clean our area. It was part of a Hebden Royd sponsored litter clearout across the town. Hebden Royd council provided bags, gloves and a skip. By the end of the weekend, the Delph, the Mill Pond and adjoining streets were completely clear of rubbish.
