SUMBA August Work Party

Home » News » SUMBA August Work Party

SHROPSHIRE UNION MIDDLEWICH BRANCH ADOPTERS or SUMBA have now completed 91 Work Parties. This is making a visual difference to the Middlewich Branch of the Canal.

On August 13th the work party included some substantial maintenance upgrades to the towpath between bridges 11 & 12 to make the area safer in wet weather.

The steps' timbers and the gate and fencing on the Church Minshull village circular walk were given their annual repaint in dark chestnut. Overhanging nettles and brambles on the steps were also cut back.

Once again everything looks very smart and welcoming for canal users and walkers on their way to and from the village -- or The Badger!!
