Runcorn Pond Summer Tidy up
On the 19th July despite intermittant rain members of the Runcorn and District SMBC helped members of Halton BC and volunteers to remove 9 truck loads Full of leaves and rubbish from the Runcorn Hill Park Lake.
Runcorn SMBC would like to say thank you very much to all those members and volunteers who helped out on the day.
Special Thanks also to:-
Michelle Shuker - Park Community Engagement Office
Siobhan Royle   - Park Conversation Partnership Office
             Who drove the wagon and after helping fill it at the pond side, then had to empty it on their own at the waste site.

Also thanks to  Margaret Radcliffe.
