Help improve Meanwood Valley Trail and get the chance to win £50!  

In the next stage of its Love Meanwood project, MVP is working with local social enterprise Lemon Balm to gather information on all the green spaces that make up the Meanwood Valley Trail and we need your help to do this.

We want to know:   👍 what you like about the trail; 👎 what needs improving; and, 😟 if there is pollution or sewage getting into the Meanwood Beck.

This information will be used to support projects that will protect and enhance the valley and other greenspaces around Meanwood.

It’s easy to do and each time you tell us about a green space you will be entered into a draw to win £50.  You can do this in two ways:

🌐 complete our online survey
click this link, or cut & paste this hyperlink: into your browser;


✍️ complete a feedback form available from: 
Meanwood Community Centre; Meanwood Valley Urban Farm; or Meanwood Park Ranger Hut.

You can provide feedback on as many places as you like - don't forget, each time you do you will be entered into a prize draw to win £50! 

This survey closes on 15th November

Spread the word - pass this email on to anyone else in Meanwood who would be interested.

We look forward to hearing from you.
