On Sunday 30th October, 5 members of the Jefferies team threw on their wellies and took part in a Halloween Wicked Welly Walk in aid of local charity The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT).
They joined hundreds of others, including young children, to walk along the new £192 million A556 dual carriageway between Knutsford and Bowdon which is currently under construction. The event, held on behalf of CAFT, was supported by Highways England and contractors Costain, who are responsible for the A556 project.
The 6.5km (4 mile) route, started in Tabley and finished in Little Bollington, where refreshments were sold to raise money for the charity. As the group made their way along the new road, they were able to see the progress of the bypass close up, which is due to open early next year.

The group consisted of Michael Jefferies, Dave Wise, Joanne Waring, Michael Mawdsley and Eileen Collier from Jefferies, along with some of their friends and families.
Our managing director, Michael Jefferies commented on the event:
“As usual, we had a fantastic time supporting The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust today, whose important work helps terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children from across the North West. It was really interesting to see the A556 improvements up close and we managed to raise £50.00 for our favourite good cause.”
