Have your say

Local residents and community groups are being asked to help with a campaign to protect wildlife in Calderdale.

Himalayan Balsam is an invasive weed from Asia which is spreading rapidly through Calderdale’s woodlands, open spaces and riverbanks, and is a serious threat to our natural environment.

Calderdale Council is holding two ‘Balsam bashing’ sessions between Saturday July 19 and Saturday July 26, to encourage volunteers to get together to remove the weed from problem areas.
