10am to 1pm

Sprout are teaming up with Lenton & Dunkirk Partnership Forum and British Waterways to plan a day of action, cleaning up the canal in Dunkirk.

We really need volunteers to join us and make this happen.

Some of the school children from Dunkirk Primary School will be joining us for an hour of the clean up, as it was their school council who identified the mess around the canal as an eyesore and something that they’d like to see improved in the area.

Please get in touch if you can spare a couple hours on Tuesday 15th February from 10am to 1pm to join in with the clear up and make the canal side better for people who visit the canal or live in the area as well as for the wildlife that lives there.

Gloves, equipment and light refreshments will be provided on the day and if you live outside the area and are aged between 16 – 25 years then we can reimburse your travel expenses.

Please join in to make this happen. British Waterways are keen to eventually allow some of the land to be used for growing wild flowers and even fruit and vegetables!!! But first we need to get rid of some of the grot!

Tel: 0115 970 8200 for more information and to let us know if you can make it. We need to get an idea of numbers to expect.
