Event description

Description

Join us to clean up Sketchley Brook and paths. Everyone is welcome - you don't have to get into the water and even if you can only stay for a few minutes you'll be making a real difference to our neighbourhood. We'll be there from 10am until 2pm so you can come whenever you like for as long as you like.

The section of the brook next to the flood relief basin, behind the Brookside houses, used to be a home for fish, amphibians and other wildlife, but has become overgrown and blocked with litter and debris.

The Borough Council will go in beforehand and cut back the vegetation so that we can get to the brook and clean it up, and we'll also pick up litter in the area.

We need people to...

* clear rubbish and debris from the brook

* cut back overgrown plants

* pick up litter from paths in the area

* use test kits to check the water quality

* take pictures of other people working

* scatter wild flower seeds

Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council will supply equipment and gloves, and if you want to work in the brook they will provide waterproof trousers, but you will need your own wellies.

* BOOKING ESSENTIAL *

We need to know how many are coming so that we can arrange equipment and protective clothing.
