Vulcan Locomotive Tribute
As you may be aware, we’ve become involved in a project to acquire and restore one of the locomotives produced at the Vulcan Works, and to return it as a permanent tribute to the work done and the historical industrial legacy of the site.
We need to raise £25,000 for the project to save it from the scrap yard, fully refurbish it, and return it to put on display at the entrance to the former Vulcan Works site as a tribute to the national significance of the works that were on the site from 1830-2002.
We have amassed considerable public support for this project. This support is invaluable, but to make this project a reality we also need the support of businesses and local organisations for sponsorship of this project. Once completed, the train will be complemented with an interpretation board and a webpage through our Newton-le-Willows Heritage Trail website detailing the history of the locomotive and the site.

Accessible Playground Equipment
We have been made aware of a number of funding sources available for developing accessible play equipment in local playgrounds. When local and national restrictions allow we will be pursuing these to develop an accessible roundabout in the Mesnes Park playground.
