Amazing Community Effort with some Crucial Expert Assistance

Saturday and Sunday March 20th and 21st 2021.

Many thanks due to the many volunteers and crucially to Danny Humphries of DS Landscapes and Jack Peate of Shropshire Tool Hire.

Also Matt Spooner of Cheshire Demolition donated aggregates and Huws Gray donated drainage pipes.

Also thanks to those who found other areas particularly by the two bridges that needed some tidying up and those that worked tirelessly providing refreshments and to Tesco and others who donated cakes etc.

The whole stretch from the car park along to the gate to Chemistry farm is now transformed.

and to Paul Millington organiser extraordinaire for his ability to make this and his many other projects happen.  See Facebook    for a more complete list of those deserving thanks.
