Path Improvement Work Finished, Dunham
A team effort by Bollin Valley Rangers and a volunteer saw the completion of a project to raise the surface level of a section of the Lymm Railway Line at Dunham. This track forms part of the Trans Pennine Trail and is popular with walker, cyclists, runners and horse riders but short sections within cuttings tend to get wet after heavy rain, this work will hopefully stop puddles forming across the track at this point

Burleyhurst Wood Footpath Improvements Completion, Morley Green
Due to funding from WREN we have been able to re-vamp a very muddy stretch of the Bollin Valley Way at Burleyhurst Wood, Morley Green. The money was secured due to the support recieved from nearby schools, walking groups, neighbours, local companies and organisations such as the National Trust.
The scheme allowed around 1km of footpath to be surfaced, stone flag bridges to be installed, drainage to be added, three sets of steps to be rebuilt and a new fingerposts from Altrincham Road.
The photo to the left is of a meeting of supporters of the scheme, local residents, Peak and Northern Footpath Society and Bollin Valley ranger Emma met to mark the completion of the improvements.

Carrs Working Party, Wilmslow
A big thank you to the 14 volunteers from Friends of the Carrs that joined ranger Emma for a spring spruce up of the park. The photo to the left shows debris being cleared from the river. Other tasks carried out were coppicing the willows that form part of the river bank defences, litter picking and some drainage works.
