The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire

Spring Clean at the Millfield

Millfield 2

The Trustees of the Barbour Institute were joined by 6 members of the public in the Millfield 'Spring Clean' which took place at the weekend — thanks to you all.

In quite splendid weather, the willows, which had outgrown their space, were 'tamed' with the use of chainsaws and a tree-gobbling chipper!

Our War Horse 'George' was given a makeover and the shrubs adjacent to this amazing sculpture were trimmed and the area weeded. The benches too received a special clean.

One big disappointment, however, was yet more dog poo, near to the paths .... evidence of the continuing and appalling disregard by a few dog walkers. Regrettably, the selfish behaviour of a minority continues to affect the pleasure of the majority.

Moreover, some of the lovely laminated posters which have been completed by the children of The Park School regarding our Green Dog Walkers' Scheme have been torn down.

The Millfield is a lovely village amenity to be enjoyed by everyone — please respect it.
