A WIRRAL beauty spot now has an all-weather disabled access path thanks to a two-year campaign.

Since June 2016, Karl Tatler Estate Agents & Lettings have been collecting £1 donations for their bag for life.

Donations have now reached £1,000, every penny of which has gone towards building at Thurstaston Common.

It has helped create new paths through particularly boggy areas of Thurstaston Common, and a new 50 metre section of all-weather disabled access path.

The firm's owner and managing director Karl Tatler said: "Making a tangible difference to people who visit Thurstaston Common is very satisfying indeed.

"It is humble and satisfying to leave our legacy on the area and everyone who has donated for one of our bags can be very proud of what has been achieved."

Phil Neagle, National Trust Ranger, said: "The Karl Tatler bag for life campaign and the generosity of the people of Wirral people has made a real difference on the ground at Thurstaston.

"Donations have enabled us to purchase materials and stone to extend our all-weather access path and hopefully, with continued support.

"We will complete a circular route which can be accessed by mobility scooters, electric wheelchairs and buggies.

"This will eventually be a hard surface path that runs right across the common from Thurstaston to Frankby.

"We have had a really positive response to our work and when out on site installing the new path barely a person passes without commenting on how we are doing such a wonderful job.

"This is a great boost for our volunteers who are working hard to accomplish the task.

Karl Tatler added: "We are delighted, though not surprised, by the generosity of the Wirral public with our bag for life donations.

"To make such a tangible difference to the preservation of the Thurstaston Common heathlands, and to make it more accessible to so many people, is very rewarding.

"To have raised £1,000 is phenomenal, and the good people of Wirral can be very proud of the positive difference they are making to Thurstaston Common. Thank you."

To pick up your own bag for life simply call in to your local Karl Tatler branch and make a donation.

Every £1 raised will enables approximately five centimetres of path to be created.
