£1000 raised towards disabled access path at Thurstaston Common

Jon Twigg and Karl Tatler celebrate the bag for life campaign

A bag for life campaign run by Karl Tatler Estate Agents & Lettings has raised £1,000 over two years towards an all-weather disabled path. The firm's owner and managing director Karl Tatler said: "Making a tangible difference to people who visit Thurstaston Common is very satisfying indeed".

Work has started on a particularly boggy area of Thurstaston Common and a new section of an all-weather disabled access path.

Phil Neagle, National Trust Area Ranger said: "The Karl Tatler bag for life campaign and the generosity of the people of Wirral has made a real difference on the ground at Thurstaston".

"Donations have enabled us to purchase materials and stone to extend our all-weather access path and hopefully with continued support, we will complete a circular route which can be accessed by mobility scooters, electric wheelchairs and buggies."

"Our volunteers have worked hard  to accomplish this task and it's extremely rewarding for them to hear positive feedback from visitors about the new paths."

Karl Tatler added: "We are delighted, by the generosity of the Wirral public with our bag for life donations.  To make such a tangible difference to the preservation of the Thurstaston Common heatlands and to make it more accessible to so many people is very rewarding."

To pick up your own bag for life, simply call in to your local Karl Tatler branch and make a donation.  Every £1 raised will enable the path work to continue.
