On Wednesday 23rd August a team from Chesterton McDonalds came along to help tidy up the Minnie Pit Memorial Garden. 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.

The team was led by Ryan Davies the Restaurant's Trust Lead and Planet Champion. He was joined by Second Assistant Manager Jessica Douse and Lobby Manager Jill Prince. A number of local residents also came along to help out along with Newcastle-under-Lyme Community Warden Mark Jones. Several frogs also made an appearance with plenty of snails, slugs and spiders.

A lot of work went into tidying the Garden and it certainly looks much better. The residents were very grateful for the help and asked if we would return in the near future.

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.
