Congratulations to Martholme Greenway who have secured funding for the development of the first phase of the greenway project. The funding is from the Bags of Help scheme that is being run by Tesco's and Martholme Greenway have got through to the final round in which the exact level of funding will be determined.
This is to be determined by a public vote in the local Tesco stores between the 27th Feb and 6th March 2016 where the group with the greatest number of votes will receive £12,000 the next £10,000 and the third £8,000 for their project.
This funding will be used on the Sustrans section from Gooseleach wood to Simonstone lane to develop a gravel path and reinstate the two missing bridges on this section. This is to be done in conjunction with the Engineering and Construction students from the University Center at Blackburn College.
Martholme Greenway would be most grateful if you could show your support for this project and spread the posters around the local areas in order to obtain as much support for this project and hence secure the highest level of funding possible
