The Church Minshull Community Website

Waterways World magazine has a report on Richard Parry's visit to SUMBA's November work party. The Canal & River Trust's Chief Executive, planted the first apple trees in the "Cheshire's Towpath Gardens" project.
SUMBA has submitted a £4,000 application to The Big Lottery's "Grow Wild" fund for bulbs, apple and fruit trees, fruit bushes and hedging whips etc. for the "Cheshire's Towpath Gardens" project.
By the end of December they will be submitting an application to Cheshire East Council's Community Fund for additional canal side furniture — 6 x picnic tables, 10 x BBQ stands and 1 x bench.
This will increase the attraction of the Middlewich Branch for all canal users.
Church Minshull Parish Council have kindly agreed to fund £400 towards the additional canal side furniture.
