Seven new volunteers have joined the Mersey Gateway Project to help tell the story of Halton’s new bridge and road project.

The new volunteers are:

  • Bob Cropper and Patricia Aikman from Widnes
  • Val Melling, Pam Moss and Colin Marner from Runcorn
  • Julie Foster from St Helens
  • Andrina Boyle from Prescot in Merseyside

All of the volunteers have completed Merseylink’s four-week training programme, where they learnt a range of skills, including community engagement and customer service.

They also found out details about the ecology, environment, local history and heritage aspects of the project, as well as the construction process.

The volunteers will now work alongside the project team to help deliver the schools engagement programme, assist with a range of community events, and staff the project’s free-to-enter visitor centre at the Catalyst Science and Discovery Centre in Widnes.

Merseylink is actively encouraging local people to get involved and volunteer with the project.
