NEWS - October

On Saturday 7 October from 11 til 1, Sustrans are holding a Greenway Event at the Lime Wood Fields with fun and information for all the family.   We may even get a few more volunteers.  See the attached poster for more details and feel free to put the poster up where people will see it!

Thanks to the people who went along to the last Volunteer morning in August and apologies that the tools were in rather short supply on that occasion. 

For insurance purposes, if you are come along to a volunteer morning you are encouraged to sign up as a Sustrans volunteer.  You can do this on this link https://www.sustrans.org.uk/volunteer/get-involved/vacancies/route-maintenance-volunteer-chester-millennium-greenway   

In any case you should always sign in. 

At the Greenway Volunteer Morning on 21 October it is hoped that some training Woodland Management will be provided by David Watson, the Sustrans Greener Greenways Ecologist. To help with planning, it would be helpful if you could register on the following link to say if you can come https://doodle.com/poll/x2tmaxfbgrazrmgn
If you are not interested in this aspect of the work there will still be litter picking.
