On Wednesday the 23rd August a team from Chesterton McDonald's will be coming along to help tidy the Minnie Pit Memorial Garden opposite to the Church.

The Team will be lead by Congregation Member Ryan Davies who is also the Restaurant's Trust lead and Planet Champion. Ryan and his team came to the Garden in 2015 and the work was greatly appreciated.

The Garden is set up as a memorial to all those that lost their lives in the Minnie Pit Mining Disaster of 12th January 1918 which claimed the lives of 155 men and boys and 1 rescuer.

Ryan and his team lead a number of events like this throughout the year in and around the local Community. Ryan last year earned the store an award for their commitment to the Newcastle-under-Lyme Litter Pledge Scheme which is aimed at getting local businesses doing their bit for the environment and the local Community. Recently Ryan also met the "Regional" and "National" Britain in Bloom Judges to talk of the work carried out in the community by the Restaurant.

Volunteers are very welcome to join in with this event and all help would be greatly appreciated. If interested please meet at the Garden at 2.00 pm or contact Ryan either through email Ryand57@live.co.uk or on 07941 684470.
