Tame Valley volunteers get stuck in

VOLUNTEERS from a community group which looks after the Tame Valley and surrounding areas have been getting stuck in once again.

Steve and Chris have been out and about giving Jet Amber Fields in Denton a spring clean.

Alongside tidying up some unruly greenery in the area, they planted several bulbs which the group hope will flower in time for spring.

Volunteers of Friends of the Tame Valley

The Friends group has gone from strength to strength since it was formed in 2021, with the help of Denton MP Andrew Gwynne, who is the secretary.

They have helped raise money for signage and footpath repairs, cleared weeds and collected countless bags of litter from the valley.

They have also teamed up with other community groups, charities and organisations, who have offered support as part of the mission to keep the valley clean and tidy.

“Our group is run solely by volunteers, and it’s thanks to the hard work of people like Steve and Chris that we’re able to keep the valley looking great all year round,” said MP Gwynne.

“I would urge anyone who wants to support our local green spaces to get in touch and get involved.

“We have plenty to get stuck into in the coming weeks, and I look forward to seeing the group continue to grow.”

Anyone who would like to get involved can find out more by emailing ajgwynne@sky.com

The Friends group care for the section of the Tame Valley from Shepley Wood in Audenshaw, through Jet Amber Fields and running into Upper Haughton and Whittles Meadows to Mill Lane in Haughton Green.
