Bradford Bulls squad kick off training with estate clean-up

Bradford Bulls Estate Cleanup

Bradford Bulls’ first team squad have been cleaning up a fly-tipping hot spot on the first day of their pre-season training.

Thirty-five Bulls players, led by coach James Lowes, joined estate teams from social landlord Incommunities’ at a plot of open land next to Fagley Beck where they removed dumped furniture, strimmed back overgrown areas, cut the grass and carried out a litter pick.

In less than two hours, they had filled a large skip and over 20 refuse bags.

Harry Whittle, director of Incommunities estate services, said: “We were delighted when we were contacted by the Bulls who were keen to kick-off their pre-season training with a local clean-up.

“Our estate teams maintain hundreds of pieces of land and this partnership clean-up also demonstrates Incommunities’ support for The Big Tidy Up, a national campaign to smartening up communities across the country.”

The Bulls also started their first day in training by doing a power walk from their training base at Tong High School to Fagley and back.

A spokesperson for the squad said: “The lads had a great time teaming up with Incommunities to tidy up the site.

“The Bulls are committed to getting involved in the communities of Bradford and lending our support to the important work of Incommunities’ estate teams was a great way of making a positive difference.”
