Sustrans – Merseyside North Volunteers

Happy to help publicise another local environmental volunteering opportunity:-

Workday… Saturday 24th September 2016

John Callaghan writes:- Short notice, but if you’re available and have an hour or two to spare…

Next Saturday (24th September, 10am onwards) the Lydiate scouts are assisting us by taking part in a sponsored litter pick on the Maghull/Lydiate area of Trans Pennine Trail/NCN 62.

Whilst they are litter picking in the area, I am planning to continue to clear The Meadow site in preparation for wildflower seeding. The Meadow site is at the beginning of the Cheshire Lines in Maghull, just off Sefton Drive, next to Sefton Meadows Garden Centre and the recycling centre. If any of you are available, I could really do with some assistance in raking the cut vegetation and clearing the ground. If you have not visited the site, it would also be an opportunity for me to introduce and discuss the Meadow project. I can also explain the bigger plan with this project and its impact for our area and all areas of the Trail. If you are available, it would be great to see you there. I have limited tools at this point and if you are able to bring a rake, it would be a great help. I also suggest you wear appropriate clothing for this type of task as the majority of what is being cleared is brambles and nettles. Please provide your own refreshments… although there is a cafe available at the Sefton Meadows Garden Centre.

If you are able to assist could you let me know …If you are unable to assist, but just want to come and say hello, you are more than welcome.
