Dukesfield Compound

On 9 August 2016 another milestone in the campaign to Unlock Runcorn was reached as these pictures show.  At the Dukesfield compound - the HQ and volunteer base - a vandal proof container was delivered, sited and opened by eager RLRS Trustees. The interior consists of office space, mini kitchen, full electrics with hook up facility etc.
