St Helens Star: Changing ways at landfill site Changing ways at landfill site

BEEKEEPING demonstrations and horse-drawn carriage rides are among the attractions at an open day showing how a landfill site is being turned into a country park.

Cory Environmental’s Lyme & Wood Pits Country Park is hosting the event on Saturday, May 24, off Vista Road in Haydock. Newton-le-Willows Anglers’ Association will also show guests the fishing ponds and there is the opportunity to operate a mini excavator digger.

Ian Craven, Cory’s area manager said: “The facilities will provide a focal point for visitors entering the park and also raise the profile of Park Ranger, Scott Lancaster. Scott will provide local groups with a unique outdoor experience including volunteering, learning, guided walks or simply further information on the flora and fauna.”

It doesn't alter the fact that the environment around the site is strewn with litter, it smells, and seagulls feast on the waste, dropping chicken bones over the park that dogs choke on.

2 small fishing ponds and some bees is no consolation for years of dirty landfill on our doorstep.
