Supporting Wildlife charities

11th October 2020

The local community of South Liverpool has come together to help transform the former Depot site at Calderstones Park. Work on the site has been lead and coordinated by the Friends of Harthill and Calderstones Park who have provided insurance for volunteers and have been given access to the site by the City.

During the winter months from 2019 to 2020 much work took place to clear areas at the northern end of the site and to create a perimeter path around the south part of the site before the bird-nesting season began. Local Councillors secured a grant from the Mayoral Fund to enable the Conservation Volunteers to be employed to lay a wood-chip cover over the cleared pathways.

The Friends of the park have taken advice from local wildlife experts and conservationists. They also held meetings with the (Liverpool based) Director of the Wildflower Centre at the Eden Project and had positive discussions with the Mersey Forest group who are able to provide selected trees for the site.

Welton Media were invited on to the site to show all the great work that has been done so far.
