John Twigg and Adam Price from Twiggs Grounds Maintenance were welcomed to the meeting discuss the new service which they would be delivering in the Penistone Area.
The team consisted of a Supervisor, an Operative, and would shortly include an Apprentice. They had just begun working in the area, and had been visiting established groups and Parish Councils in order to better know the area and work already taking place.
A presence on social media had been established and a number of events publicised. It was noted that this included tree planting of a community orchard in Millhouse Green, and working with volunteers at Saunderson Gardens. In addition, the team had made links and organised to work with Hoylandswaine School and would be making links with others.
Members thanked the team for their work to date, which had been thought positive. It was suggested that the team returns in approximately 6 months to discuss progress.
(i) That thanks be given to John Twigg and Adam Price for their attendance;
(ii) That Members forward any requests for work through the Area Team for appropriate scheduling;
(iii) That Twiggs Grounds Maintenance are invited to a future meeting of the Area Council in approximately 6 months to discuss progress.
