Chris Davies, an MEP for North West England, has visited North Cheshire to view the work that The Mersey Forest has been doing in the area.
The Liberal Democrat MEP visited The Mersey Forest on 20 August, with the aim to learn more about climate change, carbon storage, and the changes that can be achieved through community woodlands. He was given a tour of Northwich Woodlands – where volunteers recently managed to successfully breed barn owls – and the innovative wood allotments scheme at Carey Park which The Mersey Forest Team is piloting with the local community to provide cheap, sustainable firewood.
He was joined by David James, Ranger of Cheshire West and Chester Council, Mary Jeeves, Chair of Friends of Anderton and Marbury, and Susannah Gill and Paul Nolan of The Mersey Forest.
Paul Nolan said: "It was a pleasure to give Chris Davies a guided tour of some of the key areas in which we work in Cheshire.
"In particular, it was great to demonstrate the work of Friends of Anderton and Marbury, who are an extremely committed and well organised group of volunteers who have achieved great things to improve their local environment."
