Work experience students from Stoke on Trent College have been joining us regularly, to help construct a much needed footpath around Sutton Reservoir near Macclesfield.
Many of the students were new to outdoor work, and were surprised by how much they enjoyed it! The project will continue every Wednesday throughout the academic year.
Community Roots (North) is an exciting three-year conservation project supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and players of People’s Postcode Lottery. It’s based along the SSSI areas on the Huddersfield Narrow and Rochdale Canals in Greater Manchester, and aims to engage the local communities with these special environments. An additional strand of the project is based in Birmingham.
Julianne Joyce, Community Roots Project Officer is going to keep us updated on the project's progress.See more blogs from this author
