The Village Appearance Litter Pick coincided with the "go to print" for the newsletter, so their item was not included. Here it is:
The last few months has been an exciting time for members of the Village Appearance Group as another of our major projects will hopefully begin during the summer holidays. The woodland area at Wrenshot Lane has been professionally surveyed and a detailed plan sent to Cheshire East for their approval. This ambitious project will involve the laying of a woodland path, the removal of dead and rotting trees and the planting of marsh loving plants. We have been fortunate to receive two grants towards this project and hope to cover the total cost with further grants and our Sunday Tea slot on August 27th. Before the work commences, residents in the vicinity will be contacted to inform them personally of these much needed improvements.
The Belfry Entrance is a constant symbol of all our hard work and pruning of the box plants will commence in May together with the preparation of the field around the three commemorative trees as a wild flower meadow.
The shrubbery in the Play Area is beginning to show signs of growth and will be weeded in the near future, although the mulching of last year has helped to keep this to a minimum. On Sunday April 6th we held another much needed Litter Pick. Dozens of bags of litter were collected, including for the first time, two lots of laminate flooring! Our thanks must go to the four families who joined us and to MacDonalds who provided four members of staff, the equipment and the removal of the rubbish.
The street signs have also been cleaned and the daffodil display at the entrance to Pheasant Walk and the tidying of the willow tree area on the corner of Pheasant Walk and North Drive, have hopefully given much pleasure to residents as they leave and enter the area.
We have recently welcomed two new members to our group, but wondered if there were other residents who had an hour or two to spare a month? Both our meetings and maintenance sessions only take an hour. If you are interested in helping to continue the improvement of our village’s appearance please contact us on 01925 752313 or come to our next meeting on Tuesday 29th April at 7.30 pm in the Village Hall Upstairs Meeting Room.
