I notice in the December edition of Towpath Talk that the first two weeks of March are designated as BW's Spring Towpath Tidy. BW staff will be joined by volunteer groups in picking up litter, cutting back vegetation, painting locks and fences and removing graffiti. Last year apparently in excess of 2300 people took part and 149 tonnes of litter was removed! Wouldn't it be nice if every boater also made a special effort in the fortnight and spent an hour a day picking up litter, what a difference we could all make!!!
I for one shall be joining the efforts of BW staff and the volunteers to clean up my back yard wherever we are in that fortnight, why not join in and make a difference?
