Report for the March 2022 Parish Council Magazine -Kippax Matters


Hello from the Team. We are at the end of January; the first snowdrops have appeared also the days are getting longer and we're feeling a lot more positive as we look forward to Spring.

We're continuing with our usual winter jobs of pruning in our Wildlife Community Garden, Butt Hill Gardens, the Wells Garden and all the other areas we look after. We've cut back our ornamental grasses. We've filled our compost bins to the brim with leaf mould after having emptied them and spread the compost on our flower beds. We've recently taken over two flower beds from LCC, one opposite the Moorgate and the other is on Westfield Lane which means there is more work for our volunteers but also more opportunities for sponsorship. Our bed at Calvert Close looks good after our tidy up and then in a different way over Xmas with the 3 silver birches lit up each night. I tried to photograph it but my efforts were rubbish! Maybe this year someone could do better! There will be some progress at our Sensory Garden on Maltkiln Lane in the next few months as materials and workmen become more readily available. We also continue to litter pick and we want to give a big thank you to Caroline and the Kippax Wombles who do regular picks and have made a massive difference to the amount of litter around Kippax.

The painting of the street furniture has just been completed on the High St thanks to Welcome Back to High Street funding and LCC. Our wooden planters look really smart now and everything matches including the new bins our Parish Council have had installed.

We would like to thank all the people who support us in our efforts to improve Kippax environmentally and horticulturally including Kippax Parish Council, all at Woodend Nurseries, our 3 City Councillors, LCC Parks and Countryside and Cleaner Neighbourhoods Team and all at the Arium. Our volunteers are amazing but we need to increase our numbers to do even more around the village. Please contact me at psamykib@aol.com or call into Pats Sweets on the High St. to sponsor a bed or hanging basket, volunteer or answer any questions. You can also leave a message on 0113 2862283 and I'll get back to you. Our webpage is: www.kippaxinbloom.com

Thanks Pat
