The Wakeylele Band helped Newmillerdam Residents celebrate its success in the Green Flag Awards by holding a hog roast and the opening of their Labyrinth on Sunday 5th September 2021.

The Wakefield Express noted “Sunday’s event would begin at 2pm. There will be refreshments, entertainment by Wakefield Metropolitan Brass Band and the ukulele band, Wakeylele.”

The 10.5 acre green is a 10.5 acre site maintained by residents of Newmillerdam Community and Conservation Association (NCCA), for use as a community open green space and wildlife reserve. Chairman Graham Franklin said: “Apart from maintaining footpaths and installing benches, NCCA have created a new community entrance area and labyrinth, along with installing four new wooden sculptures by Mick Burns, Lincolnshire wood sculptor and artist.”
There is also a local history exhibition showing the green’s previous use as a colliery.
