Steve, our Chair, speaks to camera about the Astley Trail
Friends Chair, Stephen Rhodes (pictured), has been interviewed by Lancashire Environmental Fund (LEF) staff about the Astley Trail for a video being made for the LEF’s Annual Event to be held later this year.
The Fund is a partnership of SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK Ltd, Lancashire County Council, The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside and Community Futures which locally distributes monies from the national Landfill Communities Fund. Such funding along with monies from Chorley Council helped pay the contractor’s costs and associated expenses incurred in 2020 in creating the Astley Trail, the 2 mile long waymarked path around the key features of the Park.
Now further works are imminent to improve the trail for wheelchair and pushchair users, again to be LEF and Chorley Council funded, involving two new lengths of path that will bypass two stretches which have steps.
