The Society planted trees to celebrate 60 years of friendship and 30 years of formal twinning this year with the German town of Aachen . We planted six large oaks and several smaller saplings at Beacon Hill, Southowram, ably assisted by pupils from Withenfields and Salterlee Primary Schools.
Here Calderdale Mayor, Arshad Mahmood, helps with the planting.
The project received funding from the Community Foundation for Calderdale.
