July 2019... Yet another bench was replaced this week in Horbury, courtesy of The Rotary Club of Horbury and Ossett Phoenix.

The bench was installed by our Immediate Past President Alan Hudders, Past President Mick Miller, Phoenix member Stuart Wilby and Roger Parkinson PHF. Roger gives a great deal of time as a local Woodland Creation Champion and Volunteer Speaker for the Woodland Trust, as well as through his leading role for Wakefield Tree Wardens Charter Branch. As if that wasn't enough he also is a great friend of Phoenix Rotary and regular volunteer on our local projects. This skillful team spent hours overcoming some technical difficulties in site preparation and previously team member Stuart welded extra steel tube to the legs of the refurbished bench to bring the seat height up to the new regulation height.

The bench is now fully installed and in use in the grassed area at the junction of Quarry Hill and Horbury Bypass.

Well done all and a lovely job it is too:
