Walking for Health

Walking for health oranisation will be doing walks around Millwood, commencing friday 9th September, every friday morning during term time at 10am from The Place to Be Cafe, 10 Eastern Avenue, Speke, L24.  Everyone is welcome to join. the walk leader is Kathryn Miller.

Work to start on sludge pipe, plus project work.

The work due to start on sludge pipe in Millwood was suspended due to United Utilities doing a survey for Great Crested Newts.  The work is now due to start in first or second week of September so the green gate will be blocked off for the duration of the work.  A bridge will be put in further along the pathway for people to be able to enter the  woods.

 

Also Lancashire Wildlife Trust work will start on project, clear pathways, clear around the pond as well as the flowpipe. cutting trees back especially any dead ones. put more trenches in around the perimeter. do more planting of shrubs and wildflowers.
