Warrington’s Green Angels step up to a landscaping challenge

A group of nine trainees embarked on a three-day hard landscaping course in Lingley last week, carrying out a variety of tasks on the Land Trust’s site.

Their key project was constructing wooden steps, to make getting up and down a slope easier and safer for visitors at all times of the year. As part of the task, they learnt timber working skills and how to carry out practical site surveys.

Led by The Conservation Volunteers, the short course also involved plenty of teamwork and allowed trainees to work with all sorts of equipment.

Carolyn Hassall, Green Angels project manager at the Land Trust, said: “This short course has been a really great way for trainees to learn new skills and enhance a public green space in Warrington. The steps they have installed follow an existing desire line and allow improved access into the lower part of the site.

“Thank you to all the trainees for working so hard and doing such a great job.”
