Other events are in the planning stage. We’ll be doing more Himalayan Balsam pulling - as this was quite successful last year. We’re also planning a bee walk (probably also in June) and another moth and bat walk (which will be an evening event in early September). More information is in the Mersey Valley Summer Events Programme: www.merseyvalley.org.uk
Please make a careful note of the venues.
The Chorlton Ees Car Park is at the end of the cobbled Road off Brookburn Road (by the side of Brookburn Road Primary School).
The Ivy Green Road Entrance is about three quarters of the way down Ivy Green Road on the left hand side just past Edward Avenue.
The Hardy Lane Entrance is at the end of Hardy Lane, Chorlton.
The Chorlton Water Park Car Park is at the end of Maitland Avenue (off Barlow Moor Road).
For some tasks and events you may wish to bring a packed lunch. You will also need to wear suitable footwear (boots or wellies) and dress for the weather.
