Stamford Brook Woodland

Head to the woods for half-term family fun

Families are being invited to a special fun day that will mark the opening of a new community woodland in Altrincham.

On Thursday, May 28, local residents of all ages will be able to enjoy the new Stamford Brook Community Woodland where 6,000 new trees will be planted thanks to housebuilder Redrow. The area will provide outdoor activity and environmental education for children in the area.

Entertainment on the day to amuse all will include a face painter and a balloon modeller and magician will be dazzling everyone with their tricks. A traditional ice cream cart will also be providing treats, adding to the celebrations.

The woodland project, which will transform an area of wasteland, is linked to Redrow’s appropriately named developments in Altrincham, The Acorns and The Birches at Stamford Brook where a range of brand new family homes are being built.

Together with Hale-based environmental firm McAuliffe Group, the housebuilder has worked closely with The National Trust who owns the land to ensure that this new green space is one that generation after generation will be able to make use of.

Jason Newton, sales director at Redrow Homes (NW), said: “We’re really excited about opening up the community woodland to the public. It will enhance the wider environment for residents of Stamford Brook as well as providing an area for wildlife to thrive and it will provide a lasting legacy for the community long after the final homes are built. We’d love to see lots of families come along to the half-term event and enjoy all the fun!”
John McAuliffe, managing director of McAuliffe Group, added: “It is fantastic to watch this project finally come to life and to share it with our local community.

“We hope that the woodland at Stamford Brook will become a treasured green area for local residents and are pleased that they can now officially start enjoying the new space!”

The trees that have been planted are made up of almost 20 species, and together they’ll provide an opportunity for children to learn about the environment as well as attract local wildlife.

The event will run from 12.30pm until 4.30pm on Thursday May 28. The woodland can be accessed by heading to the end of Watermint Way postcode WA14 5YP.
