In response the organisations spoke of their work in the community, and there were short presentations from the Scouts, the Young Persons Centre, Community Compass, Cheshire Wildlife Trust, Brightlife and Frack Free Malpas. Many groups raised the issue of a shortage of volunteers, and urged local people to get involved.
