The equipment I was able to buy with the BGU grant has been a god send! I have been helping clear local paths,still strying to get CRT to get off their backsides and clear out local canal as animals are getting stuck in the weed and drowning.
Luckily I can use the rechargeable power tools I got with the grant to tackle overgrown areas. Recently I have been helping clear an over grown alley ready to plant things and make safe for kids to play in. Behind Alexandra road and Hazel Avenue
Me and my daughter decided we had had enough of litter in our local canal and dog mess all over which spoils it for cyclists and walkers,plus damaging the wild lifes habitat.
We litter pick along Bolton canal and paths near to us and have made our own signs and placed about on fences to encourage people to use the rubbish bags we have tied up along the route.
Once full we then round up and leave for council to collect at nearest pick up point.Less rubbish has been going in the canal which is a good sign and area is improving. Im looking for volunteers if your interested email me .
