Join up now to have a "once in a lifetime" opportunity to see the new A556 in close up, without having to bother about traffic.
Sun 30 October 2016 10:00 – 14:00 GMT
The 6.5km route starts in Tabley and finishes at the site offices in Little Bollington where there will be refreshments and entertainment, and walkers will then be transported back to their cars. Parking arrangements will be finalised when final numbers are known and each registered participant will be notified via the email address they have used to register.
The walk promises to be a real family event with diggers and other heavy construction vehicles being available en route for exploring by children and adults alike! This is a unique opportunity to see the progress of the scheme close up - spooky fancy dress is optional! The surface will be suitable for pushchairs or wheelchair users. Only guide and assistance dogs permitted.
It is a ticket only event and pre-registration is required. Tickets cost £5, children aged 4 and under are free (tickets are still required for under 4’s). Click Join up now for Tickets and further information.
Many congratulations !!! Niki Birrell and his sailing partner Alex Rickham who won a Bronze medal in the 2 person sailboat “Scud” class. We were delighted with their winning Bronze in the London Games. To achieve medals in successive games shows their excellence and determination to win.
You may have seen the celebratory parade through Manchester on Mon 17th October to celebrate the achievements of all our athletes in Rio. The BBC has reported the following comments from Rickham and Birrell:
Rickham said: “We feel relieved. It's been a long, very hard week. We came here to contest for the gold, but that slipped away really quite quickly, and we're just so happy to have got the medal.
Birrell added: “To have two Paralympic medals is just surreal. Rio has been fantastic, we've really enjoyed it. We came for gold but we're super happy with bronze because this week we've had to fight so hard in our boat for every metre and every position.”
