Dodging the showers has been a particular challenge this week but work is progressing on Phase 2a of the Flood Defence Works at China Meadow.
As reported previously, work began on Monday 10 May when volunteers from TWiG, Dr Nicola Hall from ELM Associates, Dr Mike Norbury from Mersey Forest, and the contractor, James Pownall, were all on site.
The outcome of this project is to alleviate further flood risk within the centre of Tattenhall – particularly at Old Mill Place and the adjacent area.
This will be of particular relevance and interest to those individuals who were so badly affected by flood damage earlier this year.
Already, stream-side vegetation has been removed and the location of new fencing has been staked out. The contractors have also started the preparation of drainage ditches and the installation of the bunds.
We will keep you posted with regular updates.
