The purpose of the clean-up is to clear any plant overgrowth, debris and litter from the canal banks and to tidy up the area in general to increase the visual appeal for canal users. The Canal and River Trust is one of the organisations joining us in our clean-up. They are providing all safety and clean-up equipment required to get the task done properly. Calder Navigation Society have also organised a barge to come along to allow us to get into the difficult to reach areas along the water’s edge. Other local businesses such as Sainsbury’s Brighouse and Incredible Edible are also supporting the event by providing refreshments for volunteers. Prego will also be providing a light lunch with teas and coffees for all volunteers once the job is finished. This is a great community event for everyone to come together with local businesses to clean-up our town. For more information ring 01484715566.
