FoAM’s Autumn 2013 Newsletter

This issue of our Newsletter contains an interesting perspective from a mobility scooter user on visiting Marbury Country Park. We also report on FoAM’s success in getting £25,000 earmarked within the Saltscape Project. This will enable a way-marked trail through Northwich Woodlands between the Lion Salt Works and Anderton Boat Lift, to show visitors the impact of the salt industry on the landscape and wildlife. The work will be undertaken next year if the second-round bid to The Heritage Lottery Fund for the overall Saltscape Project is successful.

Yo u can also read about our latest project in the Marbury Arboretum. This involves replacement of the wooden plaques (which help visitors identify tree species), installation of an interpretation panel and re-alignment of the entrance path to encourage visitors to explore the Arboretum. This £12,000 project is supported by local chemicals manufacturer INEOS Enterprises through the Landfill Communities Fund, as part of the Mersey Forest.

    The issue of horse mess could be resolved by the relatively simple renewal of the sign redirecting horses and bikes away from the woodlands. Signs the size of motorway boards advising dog owners are placed prominently in the park. Why not small boards advising bike and horse riders of their responsibilities?
