Cllr Denise Jeffery, Leader of Wakefield Council, said: “We know that our green spaces have been more important than ever to our residents over the last year and that’s why we have committed to invest in our parks and countryside across the district.

“This extra investment also helps us to take climate change and ensure that the natural environment is still as wonderful for future generations to enjoy. If you have a question about a park or green space near you, please join the session and get in touch.”

Join in on Facebook @MyWakefield at 12pm on Tuesday 29 June.
