We would like to say an enormous thank you to all the volunteers who have helped to transform the public pathways which eventually be home to Echoes of Blackburn Meadows (EBM).
Over the past twelve weeks, thanks to environmental charity BTCV and a funding boost from SITA Trust’s GreenPrints scheme, a group of dedicated young volunteers have re-surfaced pathways; constructed steps and benches; built a wetland scrape; planted a species-rich hedgerow; and removed litter, bracken and buddleia to make the environment cleaner and safer for all visitors to the area.
On Friday 26th March we welcomed David Blunkett, MP to the site. Mr Blunkett met conservation volunteers, as well as former workers of the power station, whose spoken memories have been used as part of EBM.
We are now on the hunt for funding, which will allow us to build EBM’s remaining transmitters. Don’t forget that we’re still broadcasting a soundreel of EBM during daylight hours, via out prototype transmitter located HERE. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address if you wish to borrow an FM radio receiver (free of charge) to tune in.
