Tom Morrison and Keith Holloway joined with volunteers from Groundwork Manchester and Mersey Rivers Trust at a Balsam Bashing event in Cheadle.
Balsam is an invasive species of plant, brought to the UK in the Victorian era. Unfortunately it is incredibly aggressive and dominates the areas where it is found, not allowing other native plants to flourish.
Volunteers from across the area joined forces to help break the Balsam, to keep it controlled and allow for other wild flowers to grow.

Tom Morrison has launched a survey across Cheadle Constituency to find out what people think of green spaces locally.
Many people are concerned about the future of their green spaces. Plans by Greater Manchester Combined Authority (known as GMSF) have ear-marked several large green spaces for development in areas such as Heald Green and Woodford, whilst Mirrlees Fields near Woodsmoor is now the focus of a potential planning application.
Elsewhere, the Conservative Government have proposed plans that would see planning decisions taken away from local councils and people to 'speed up' the development process.
