Litter picking beside the canal in Whaley Bridge
Litter picking beside the canal in Whaley Bridge

A group of residents, youngsters and community representatives, including local police, from Whaley Bridge teamed up to help carry out a sponsored litter pick around the Canal Basin.

It was set up by the Whaley Bridge Association to help boost lottery funding for skate park improvements in Whaley Bridge, with youngsters collecting sponsorship for the pick.

They collected 15 bags of rubbish, which included plastic bottles, snack wrappers and packaging.

Money is still being collected towards the skate park and future fundraising events are planned. If you would like to donate or give your support, contact Jonathan Carnell of the Whaley Bridge Association by emailing jonathancarnall@hotmail.com.
