Could you become a Friend of Thimblemill Brook?

You can drive down Norman Road and hardly notice the Thimblemill Brook, but it is one of our lesser known local beauty spots and it is home to a wide variety of plant life and wildlife species. The brook is lovingly looked after by a small but dedicated group of volunteers – The Friends of Thimblemill Brook.

The Friends work with local residents and schools on a programme of environmental improvements, monthly litter picks, education projects, wildlife conservation, and helping to raise awareness and generally improving the area.

The Friends group who have done some amazing work over the last decade, are always on the lookout for new volunteers and committee members.

Lots of people care about global issues around the environment and the consequences for the planet, but there are small conservation projects like Thimblemill Brook on our own doorstep that we can do something practical to help to improve and preserve.

If you would like to contribute to the work of the Friends Group, why not pop in and have a chat with the wonderful Julie McKirdy at Thimblemill Library.

  1. I was born in Cheshire Rd and I can remember when the brook ran down Cheshire Rd

    A friend of mine tells me while walking his dog on Monday 3 September down Norman Road on the brook side he observed two large multicolored parrots amongst the bushes and making quite a noise. Anybody else seen them?
