United Utilities

Please be careful going around Millwood as work is been undertaken by United Utilities on the Mersey Valley Sludge Pipeline which needs replacing.  So there will be 30 ton diggers going up and down pathways for next 6 months at least.

Millwood & Alderwood Local Community Involvement Project.

The Friends of Millwood & Alderwood have just finished a project funded by SLH. It was to increase involvement with the local community.

Marketing leaflets were distributed throughout Speke to encourage adults and families to get involved with the Friends of Millwood & Alderwood.

Sessions took place throughout January and February.  Key stage 1 children from Middlefield had sessions on Thursdays  The Venny on Saturdays & Thursday in half term.   They really enjoyed themselves digging, planting and building dens. Earthworks Liverpool Ltd provided the educational and environmental activities.

In all it involved 51 children, 25 young people and 27 adults. This was over 9 different activity days, whilst also enhancing 0.5 hectares of Alderwood which is an acient semi-natural woodland.

All enjoyed it that much they want to carry on and have been using the site with families and friends.
