A local beauty spot in Bromley Cross has been improved thanks to funding.

The woodland area between Ryeburn Driver and Pebble Close needed a little TLC after fencing and benches had become worn over time.

It os well used by local dog walkers and families for their children to play in.

Some residents even go fishing there, and many choose it as their go to nature spot.

Using local Area Forum funding, Ward councillors Cllr Nadim Muslim, Cllr Amy Cowen, and Cllr Sam Connor sought to repair the fencing and gating to the fishing lodge area.

Cllr Nadim Muslim said “Being able to fix the fencing and fishing perches will mean a lot to local residents.

“It’s a beautiful, well-used area, and so we want to make sure everyone can enjoy it safely.

“We want all residents in Bromley Cross ward to know we’re investing in their local area.”

The new fencing will make things much safer for everyone using the area, which has meant that some fishing perches were also repaired.

Cllr Samantha Connor added: “We’re pleased we could action this quite quickly.

“As part of our regular tour of the ward, we noticed this had significantly deteriorated since we were last in the area.

“It made complete sense to invest in the fencing.”

Cllr Amy Cowen, said: “Residents will know that this area is very popular with dog walkers and local children who want to explore the nature around them.

“Having this new fencing in place will mean residents can be reassured that their families will be safe in and around this area.”
