Wetherby District Lions Martin and Ken, in partnership with Harrogate Borough Council, have been working on the Harland Way.

Martin explains the project - "Since lockdown, increasing numbers of people are using the Harland Way. Several of the seating benches on the Spofforth side of the railway cutting have deteriorated with age to the extent they are unusable. Wetherby Lions are delighted to have refurbished four of these benches using recycled plastic lumber and to have had the support of Harrogate Borough Council and Sustrans in doing so.”

Shirelle adds, “it's been such a pleasure working together with Martin and Ken refurbishing the benches, helping Harrogate Borough Council to improve the seating on the Harland Way. The benches look fantastic and we've had such good feedback on them. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to the Wetherby District Lions for funding this project. I hope we can work together again soon.”

Please enjoy the new seats!!
