Re­vamp for Her­itage Way

Macclesfield Express - - CHILDREN IN NEED -

VOL­UN­TEERS have been work­ing hard to cre­ate a mini oa­sis on the edge of the town cen­tre.

The site, which has an en­trance at the round­about op­po­site B&Q on Churchill Way, has been un­der the care of food group Food4Macc for the past five years.

They have been busy plant­ing fruit bushes, bulbs and cleared the area of leaves as part of their role to have more food pro­duced in the Mac­cles­field area.

Now the threat of los­ing the space to the town cen­tre re­de­vel­op­ment plan has been with­drawn, they have joined forces with Mac­cles­field Guild and Cham­ber of Trade, and Mac­cles­field RSPB, to resur­face ‘Her­itage Way’, the path­way through to the town cen­tre gar­den.

Alan Br­ere­ton, from Food4Macc, said: “The walk­way would have dis­ap­peared at the back of Deben­hams had the old Wil­son Bow­den scheme gone ahead, but that shouldn’t af­fect us now so we’ve be able to put some money into it.

“It’s a nice green space in the cen­tre of Macc. We don’t have many of those so it’s im­por­tant.”

To join Food4Macc and help main­tain the area, go along to Her­itage Walk on Tues­day af­ter­noons be­tween 2pm and 4pm.
