We had a tremendous turnout on the Millennium Green last Saturday morning when the Trustees were thinning the woodland to encourage future tree growth and at the same time producing the fuel for this year's Guy Fawkes Bonfire and Firework Display .
It was a lovely sunny morning when an enthusiastic team of leaders , parents Scouts, Cubs and Beavers from the 3rd Macclesfield Scout Group, who love to hold their Summer BBQ and Camp Fire on the Green each July, returned to help a team of Henbury residents to carry loads of felled trees and branches from the woodland area to the bonfire site so it's all in place for building the fire nearer November 4th. It was great fun, and we're all looking forward to getting back on the Green on November 4th to enjoy the super Firework Display and the Bonfire we've helped to build.
A real big thank you to all who helped — SEE YOU on BONFIRE NIGHT!!
