Glazebury residents dug deep to continue the development of a local natural play area.
They planted wildflower bulbs and trees at the site, which is based off Warrington Road, at a planting event organised and coordinated by The Mersey Forest and the Glazebury Community Play Area Committee.
Last year, local volunteers helped to plant the beginnings of a community orchard with cobnut trees and a hedgerow as part of the development of the site. The area will provide a communal space for local people to get together within Glazebury village and encourage children to play more naturally in a new play area.
It will feature climbing and seating areas made from boulders and logs, winding paths, willow domes, den-building areas, and wildlife-friendly hedges, trees and wildflowers. The play logs are now onsite with work to begin on footpaths in the New Year.
Parish Councillor Angela Duncombe, said: "It was great to see so many local volunteers at the tree planting day. They were so enthusiastic about the play area and many stayed much longer than originally planned.
"The next phase of this project will involve laying paths down later this winter, followed by weaving a willow-dome on site."
The natural play area off Warrington Road is being created on land leased to Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council by Bents Garden Centre. The latest phase of the work is being funded through, Cory Environmental Trust in Britain through the Landfill Communities Fund and The Big Tree Plant funding through The Mersey Forest.
