Councillor Judith Blake, executive board member responsible for children’s services said “It is fantastic that so many people were willing to give up their time to help make the activity centre an even better place for the children and young people of Leeds.”
The volunteers helped improve and sustain the 16 acre site by creating a BBQ area, a new outdoor activity, completing a garden area for disabled visitors and general tidying up of the centre.
Tony Edwards, Herd Farm Activity Centre manager, said “Herd Farm covers 16 acres and managing the site requires a lot of work from a small team.
