Information Board in Bank Park

Sunday 4th December, 2016

FoWTB are pleased to announce that after working closely with Warrington Borough Council, we now have an information board about the bridge in a prominent location within Bank Park!

We held a brief ceremony on a bitterly cold afternoon in Bank Park on Saturday 26th November, where the information board was unveiled by two former Crosfield Employees - Arthur Jones, who was Civil Project Engineer for the company, and Geoff Gleave, who used to service the electrics on the bridge - and our youngest supporter William Barker, aged just 14 months!

...after which we all retreated into the warmth of the Gallery Cafe at Bank Quay House for tea/coffee and cake (the coffee is amazing from there!)

As well as the information board, the Council also very kindly approved an additional fingerpost pointing in the general direction of the bridge!
