Readers will know I am a big supporter of the Maghull in Bloom volunteers and I also have the privilege to chair the steering group that brings all the volunteers and organisations involved in this long-running project together on a monthly basis.
I thought I would run a few articles about some of the projects that Maghull in Bloom is presently involved with so here goes with the first of 3 initial postings.
The Leeds Liverpool Canal used to be a real mess but in recent years volunteers have been litter picking it on a weekly basis. What’s more local schools have also joined in and they helped in the past week to litter pick the canal tow path all the way from Aintree, through Melling, Maghull and Lydiate.
The regular volunteers do a great job and Maghull in Bloom has also provided some excellent planters (again maintained by volunteers) at prominent spots along the canal through Maghull.
Here are a couple of shots I took very recently. The first one let’s canal tow path users know that it is kept clean by volunteers. The second is at the Shop Lane swing bridge in Maghull.
