The Church Minshull Community Website

Nine SUMBA volunteers, together with Roger and Alan from CRT, on Saturday 11th July, held a successful work party to further improve the canal section of the CM circular walk.
1). The steps' woodwork and fence at Hoolgrave Bridge 11 has been painted to improve weatherproofing. CRT's contractors have strimmed around the steps to remove nettles etc.
2). A section of towpath from Hoolgrave Bridge 11 towards bridge 12 was gravelled and gritted.
This has removed unsightly grass growth from under the bridge and improved safety when descending the steps. Further lengths of towpath between these bridges will be improved in the coming months.
3). A bench, constructed by Reaseheath College's students, was installed at the 48hr moorings between bridges 12 and 13 which overlook Church Minshull.
The bench completes the installation of leisure facilities at this location. The three BBQ stands are being used regularly and have received wide acclaim from numerous users of the canal.
