There’s under a week to go until we begin our Great Summer Clean Stoke!

David Attenborough’s Blue Planet has inspired us to take action against the rubbish and plastic that is affecting our local environment; the problems of the ocean start in the canals.

What’s the plan for the day?

Our mini-adventure will take us up to Middleport in the morning and down to Joiners Square in the afternoon. We’ll be collecting rubbish and plastic in a variety of ways. You’ll be able to hop on the canoes, walk along the towpaths, take a voyage on the Middleport workboat and even have a go on the floating bike if you fancy it! Think of it as a bit of fun with a serious intent.

We’ll be splitting the day in two, and we only need a few volunteers so if you or your teams fancy sparing a couple of hours in the morning or the afternoon, please do get in touch with Dan Lowndes or Paul Colclough on 01782 279615.
