Groundwork Commits to Trafford Ecology Park

As part of a wider review of their operations Groundwork have taken the decision to refurbish the building at their Trafford Ecology Park site – a Site of Biological Importance in the heart of Trafford Park Industrial Estate – and to base most of their staff teams there from August.

Talbot Road/Milton Road improvements

Just to let you know I spoke to a chap on Talbot road who is taking over the building on the corner of Talbot Road/Milton Road he is moving all rubbish off the front (Talbot Road) putting decking up and hoping to hold functions in that building he said it will take time and Mr Pino already sorting his area out, hopefully things are looking up!
