“LITTER PICK”  SATURDAY JUNE 2nd 2018 10:00 TO 15:00

We are following up our highly successful litter picking exercise of last October with another event on 2nd June.  (This event was originally due to take place on 3rd March but had to be cancelled because of bad weather.)  If you look at the record of litter bags collected over the past year (please click on the link below) you will see the immense effect our efforts seem to have made.

We need all the support we can get to achieve the objective of a litter-free path for all to enjoy, so please support us on June 2nd if you can.

Another “blitz” should see the canal line - The Yellow Brick Road, as it is known locally - in good shape.

We are hoping to build on our efforts, with regular litter picks carried out by local groups supported by the Manchester and Stockport Canal Society and SUSTRANS the cycling charity.

Please help us to gain local support by example.

Refreshments provided for volunteers at the litter pick -

A successful litter pick of the Fallowfield Loop Path took place on the weekend of 28/29th April.  Please click  here  to see a report of this event.
