Hentons help Leeds park bloom

Staff from accountancy firm Hentons picked up the shovels and paint brushes to help Woodhouse Moor Park.

The team helped to restore flower displays and improve footpaths in the park. The day was organised by the Leeds City Council Parks and Countryside team to ensure the 3 million visitors to the park enjoy the best experience.

Commenting on the work Waseem Khan, a manager at Hentons said: “Hentons supports many charities and community initiatives. It was great to be able to get out in the fresh air as a team and do our bit to make sure our city’s public spaces look their best. I would recommend any business to get involved with the council and support these rewarding activities.”

Woodhouse Moor was the first public park in Leeds, after being purchased by Leeds City Council in 1857 for £3000. It is the third most popular park in Leeds and is situated a mile out of the city centre.

The team from Hentons planted flower beds and improved the rose gardens, along with painting, pruning and weeding.

Nick Denman, park ranger at Leeds City Council, said: “The team from Hentons really got stuck in and Woodhouse Moor Park is looking great for the rest of the summer. It is great to see local companies supporting the work we do.”

Corporate responsibility is integral to Hentons business strategy and it supports a wide range of charities and community organisations. Recently a member of staff, Waseem Khan, received national recognition for his work with Mosaic, a national mentoring charity that helps disadvantaged youngsters brush up on their business skills.
