Woodland Walk Celebration (5)

Along with our Green Flag, we have just heard that we were one of 15 places
in the country (out of nearly 1,700) to win a 2016 Special Award for
Innovation.

This is the second time that we have won one of these, probably
a unique achievement. It builds upon the first award that Jim Grogan
claimed in 2010 for achieving the transfer of under-used public land to
become the wonderful community-use woodland that exists today.

This second award is based on the work that the Trust has done since then working with
Taylor Wimpey and the CWaC planners to develop what will become a further
stretch of woodland when it matures.

In addition, the ownership of both woodland areas has been transferred to
the Tarvin Community Woodland Trust, the not-for-profit charity that manages
the woodland. The community now owns a piece of woodland that forms a link
in a walk from the A54 by-pass right through to Austins Hill on the way to
Duddon and Tarporley. Everyone in the community should be proud.

Also, see the web site at www.tarvincommunitywoodland.org
and follow the links. For more information contact me on 740831 or Stuart Exell on 740337.
