Natural born winners – the walk (22nd September 2007)

QWAG’s Green Chain walk linked Chinbrook Meadows and Sutcliffe Park.

In March of this year we explained how both Chinbrook Meadows and Sutcliffe Park have won a steady stream of accolades since their superb transformations – proposed and championed by QWAG – five and three years ago. So, when we were asked to contribute a walk for this year’s Green Chain Walking Festival, there was really only one choice – a walk from one to the other.

The Quaggy could be broken out of its unneccesary concrete channel and incoporated into the reserve.
