Next Cleanup May 19th 10am Canal
After a hugely successful Canal Action Day cleanup last month – see below – we are back on the canal on Saturday April 19th. Meeting at 9.45 for 10am start at the BERA Hall. This meeting slightly earlier worked well the last time as we were able to plan better where people could go. If you are able to make it by that time please let us know because it makes it easier to assign people to places if we know what the final numbers might be. Tea and buns afterwards as ever.
(Next month – June 16th – we will be back at the village cleanup)
Canal Action Day Cleanup last month
this was a huge success with more than 30 volunteers collecting two huge piles of rubbish, one at the Blackhorse end and one at the BERA Hall. Thanks so much to those who turned out. People have remarked how the canal – especially near reeds – stayed clean for much longer afterwards and we really think we made a dent in the long term rubbish situation. Photos attached as well as a lovely message from the Canal Action group summarising all that was achieved.
