Tarmac volunteers help out at Crown Farm Quarry

Members of north-west area senior leadership team enjoy a volunteering day with Cheshire Wildlife Trust

MEMBERS of Tarmac’s north-west area senior leadership team recently enjoyed a day away from the office volunteering with the Cheshire Wildlife Trust at Tarmac’s Crown Farm Quarry.

Tarmac work in partnership with Cheshire Wildlife Trust at Crown Farm, with the Trust managing the restoration plan for the areas of the site where sand and gravel extraction has been completed.

The day’s activities involved timber removal and the processing of trees that had been felled during the winter, along with the creation of a woodchip footpath along the edge of one of the lakes to help with access for school groups.

In 2019, Tarmac and Cheshire Wildlife Trust worked together to create the Crown Farm Discovery Centre at the site, where the Trust now runs education sessions for local school children to encourage them learn about nature and how they can play their part in preserving it for the future.

Tarmac area director Richard Kirwin said: ‘The team had a great time helping the Cheshire Wildlife Trust at Crown Farm. It’s great to get out of the office and be able to give back, whilst helping to restore a former quarry site makes it all the more rewarding.’

Kevin Feeney, living landscapes officer at Cheshire Wildlife Trust, said: ‘We would like to say a big thank you to Tarmac for their help making Crown Farm Nature Reserve ready for school groups to return this summer and for their continued shared vision in making Cheshire better for wildlife.’
