In 2019, again with funding from Cllr Myles Hogg’s budget and working with the Council, the ramp from Wallcroft onto the Wirral Way was upgraded to make it more accessible for wheelchairs and prams.
In 2017-18, thanks to funding from our Councillor’s budget and donation of old sleepers from Friends of Hadlow Road Station, the steel platform and sleeper bridge have been put in place by the Council in areas on FP 32 where it often floods (between the Pollard Inn and the Wirral Way).
During 2015 and 2016, we had had a project to replace all the styles in the parish with kissing gates. This is now complete, thanks to funding from Wirral Borough Council, Cllr Myles Hogg, Cheshire West and Chester Council and the Wirral Footpaths and Open Spaces Preservation Society. Kissing gates are easier for people with disabilities and young children to use and we are pleased to have been able to make the footpaths in the area more accessible.
