Church Minshull's Canal Wins Coveted Award
Shropshire Union Middlewich Branch Adopters
SUMBA's adopted 5 1/2 miles of the Middlewich Branch canal — from Church Minshull to Barbridge — is included in the 22 miles of the Shropshire Union canal that has this week won Keep Britain Tidy's 2017 Green Flag Award. The full award is for the length of canal from Middlewich, via Barbridge, to Audlem.
This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.
This is a just reward for our large team of loyal volunteers' ongoing hard work, throughout the year in all weathers, maintaining and visually improving "their" section of the canal for the benefit and enjoyment of all its many varied users — boaters, fishermen, walkers and visitors etc.
Since April 2014 SUMBA has completed 136 work parties, involving 1,850 volunteer days and 7,400 hours.
