2018 Voice your Choice winning project, Bradley Woods
Bradley Wood, the home of West Yorkshire Scouts, is a campsite situated on the outskirts of Rastrick. It is owned by the Scout Association and provides adventurous activities to a wide audience, offering facilities to all youth organisations, schools and colleges in Calderdale and Kirklees.
In 2018 their project was chosen by the Community to receive £59,500. This grant enabled them to enhance their activity provision by creating a new zone – “Challenge Valley” adventure playground for under 12s and a treetop zip line for the older children. The funding ensured that these were provided by external organisations specialising in their installation. It also allows for the safety equipment needed to operate safely, helmets, harnessing etc.
