We were all aware that Lidgett Lane was closed for a week recently for some essential works. As a result the opportunity was grasped by the Tankersley Parish Council and TPEG to take care of some much needed work.
The intention was to cut back vegetation where possible, and clear years of accumulated stuff from the road side. There were several groups involved from planning to execution, as can be seen in the attached images – and what a difference they all made!!
Take a stroll along Lidgett Lane and you will see the amazing difference.
Thanks to all who were involved.
The enthusiasm carried on into the Welfare Hall, where a large skip was filled with the cuttings and debris from within the grounds:
We had about 25 volunteers helping out. 15 on Monday, 16 on Tuesday. about 12 on Wednesday and 10 on Thursday.
Mick Marsden was a stalwart. He did three full days one half day plus four evening sessions.
The youngest volunteer was 10, there were 4 teenagers and the oldest volunteer was nearly 70.
Great team spirit, a mixture of born & bred in the village with people from the ‘new’ estates. Kirstine, Christine, David C, Sue & David Grace from TPEG + Parish Councillors and the Vicars wife Janet.
A great community endeavour. Janet Mellor lent is her trailer to move the debris to the skip. Lots of interested people making comments as they walked past.
