Volunteer litter picking on the canal path

Canal Litter picking  June 2012

A group of volunteers organised by the CM Vision Group's Direct Action team, arranged to meet at 10:00am on Saturday, 26th May, 2012, to clear the canal tow path, between Higher Elms farm and Hoolgrave Bridge. This stretch of the tow path is extremely picturesque and offers panoramic views of Church Minshull Village, Darnhall and as far as Peckferton. It is a favourite walk for many residents of the community, visitors to the area, anglers and narrow boat users, however, popularity also brings litter and detritus from those who are less responsible and spoils an area of outstanding beauty for the majority of people who enjoy it.

Church Minshull Parish Council paid for gloves, bags and litter picking tongs and three mini groups set off from different points on the tow path and collected 11 bags of discarded litter and other indescribable rubbish. The task started at 10:00am and the collected refuse was deposited at the Pyms Lane tip at 11:00am — 10 to tip — 1 hour...!!
