Wednesfield Local Nature Reserve – Our Canal Needs You!

Our new Local Nature Reserve on the Wyrley & Essington Canal here in Wednesfield, needs your Help!

Following the very successful litter pick, in the summer at this location. We will once again be out on the tow paths of the Wyrley & Essington Canal doing it all over again. You see keeping our environment rubbish free needs some hard work and dedication. It just will not get done unless we all do something for the good of the wildlife and the flora. The Canal & River Trust are providing a boat once again to support the event, and they will also provide gloves and bags and other equipment. But we will need to know roughly how many people intend to come along? If you want to bring your own Gloves and Litter Picker that is also fine. But we still need an idea on numbers attending.

Also the work that we put in now will help with our preparations for the delivery of the Wednesfield Canal Festival in 2020!

We are of course making preparations to ensure that the Wyrley and Essington Canal is fit for purpose, all the year around. If you would like to be part of the Volunteers that will be undertaking the ‘Litter Pick’ of the canal, please let me know. Give me a rough indication of attendance by responding via email- Or leaving a message on Facebook.

The Litter Pick will start at 9.00am and finish at 13.00 on Sunday the 6th October 2019- We will gather outside of The Nickelodeon at 9.00am – Will we see you there?
